    About me

    A versatile character actor who has been acting since early childhood. I'm capable of handling a variety of roles both from within my natural playing age and outside of that. My biggest strength is my voice with which I am able to both fill a large auditorium without amplification, and sprinkle delicately on to a microphone in a vocal booth.

    I have worked both under my real name (Will J L Howells) and a previous stage name (James Davenport).
