    About me

    David trains weekly with specialist screen acting coach Matt Zina, casting agent and founder of the internationally acclaimed 'Yorkshire School of Acting'. Focusing heavily on the techniques of Meisner, Adler and Stanislavsky, to create honest and truthful reactions on screen.

    David has steadily developed a modern acting method, and an understanding of the theory behind TV and Film acting, that casting directors have come to demand. He continues to learn and grow as an actor constantly honing his skills, and is deeply dedicated to this life-long learning process, with a love and passion for the industry.

    David began his on screen acting career in 1999 in the Film-4 production ‘The Necrofile’ playing a vampire slayin’ sound engineer. After 15-year career as a professional Kung-Fu instructor, he was asked to work as a special action performer on the set of DC Comics Wonder Woman and was given a featured role, it was here he was approached by a highly-recognised Motion Picture Cinematographer, who suggested that David pursue a career as a full-time professional actor. His latest spoken role in Cinemas is screened in the 2018 urban tragedy Cleft Lip by renown director Erik Knudson.

    David Childs loves being a father and husband, to him these are his most important roles…
