    About me

    I came to acting later in life after stumbling across a part-time three-year acting course at Morley College in London, from where I graduated in 2012.

    Since then I have played a diverse range of characters on stage both classic and contemporary in some of London's premier fringe venues. These include Macduff in Macbeth The Earl of Gloucester in King Lear, Oberon and Theseus in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Dr. Rank in The Doll's House and Mr Smith in The Bald Prima Donna.

    I recently played the lead character Johnson in This Story Of Yours at The White Bear to critical acclaim:- ‘Brian Merry, in particular, gave an outstanding performance as Johnson. From the moment the audience enter the auditorium and see him sitting there, brooding over his whisky. Brian puts everything into Johnson and it really works.’ Terry Eastham - Londontheatre1

    I have also co-starred in numerous short films inhabiting a vast array of roles including an officer manager, a bodyguard, an S&M dungeon master, an ex-soldier suffering from PTSD, a nuclear scientist, a dry solicitor and a hard hitting reporter.

    Particularly interested in theatre, film and TV work.
