back to Bursary

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to The Actors’ Guild.

Winning the 2012 bursary is appreciated so much – I feel very lucky.

As everyone will know, it is not the easiest of professions; so when you have a booster like this, it’s really welcomed & I’m ever so grateful.

Apart from being a great community, Actors’ Guild workshops are also so welcoming and supportive. What’s more, if you’re working on an acting job and then pop in for a class, it never feels like you’ve been away at all! As actors we never stop learning and The Actors’ Guild is a terrific place to stay sharp.

I’ll do my utmost to make the best of this bursary. As Stella Adler said, (and I think De Niro after her), “Your talent lies in your choices”. I like to think that can be applied to every part of being an actor, whether making choices in rehearsals, or choosing whether to do a workshop. I try to keep that in mind – although I don’t know always how successfully!

I would highly recommend joining The Actors’ Guild to every professional actor, whatever their age and at whatever stage in their career they are.

2013 update

Since being awarded the 2012 bursary, I was very pleased to be voted ‘Best Male Performance’ at this year’s 2013 OFFIES for Tooting Arts Club’s production of Barrie Keefe’s ‘Barbarians’. I’ve also enjoyed tackling a few TV jobs; including playing the painter JMW Turner in BBC 2’s ‘The Genius of Turner’. The gifts that came with the bursary have been very helpful; and I’ve tried to make the best use of them.  I’ve continued to find The Actors’ Guild a great source of inspiration & encouragement.
