    Additional Skills

    I write fiction, can rap as well as freestyle lyrics along with writing them and am strong on impressions and mimicry.

    Additional Information

    I am passionate about underrepresented voices being heard especially Black actors in the U.K. I aim to avoid scripts that simply reinforce the stereotypes or at the very least, do nothing to subvert them if they so decide to include them initially. I hope to be a voice for that in some way in my career.

    About me

    I am a young actor whose casting type is brooding characters with a sense of edginess and quiet, intense intelligence. I am particularly attracted to independent films and ambitious TV projects due to the tendency of the scripts being richer in character and give the actor greater opportunity to be challenged. However I also place importance on bringing what I can to the script, hopefully elevating the material and making engaging choices. I am easy to work with, hardworking, take my work seriously and I am open to criticism, wanting to always serve the story as best as possible.

    Acting experience

    I have performed on the West End at Her Majesty's Theatre for the play "Legally Blonde", The Gulbenkian Theatre for Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus", and had one of the short films I was in won an award at a prominent L.A. film festival. I am currently sending my materials to casting directors as well as planning to create my own work. I am currently training at Anarchy Studios based in Moorgate, under the direction of Christopher Hanvey.
