    About me

    Training with established acting tutor David Johnson since a young age, John developed his passion for performing and the arts. He has been active on screen and stage, playing roles in various theatre productions, and film & television roles. John is currently doing his MA at the Academy of Live & Recorded Arts in Professional Acting.

    Notable stage credits include, new musical 'The Jury' at the Brindley Theatre to a positive response "John Thacker gives a sweet and surprising performance as student Harry Turner, pitching his storyline perfectly.", 'This Much' as part of Manchester Fringe, 'Marathon For You' at the Carriageworks Theatre raising awareness for meningitis, alongside performances at the 'Hope Mill Theatre', and 'The Oldham Coliseum' . Film/TV credits include, a number of reconstructing roles for TV including 'Crimes That Shook Australia' and 'The One Show'; lead roles in well received short films notably thriller 'Blinded', drama 'Reverie', and a supporting role in 'Run Kara' screened as part of Harrogate Film Festival; John stars as the lead role in upcoming horror feature film 'Coven Of Evil' . John has also performed for various online videos for 'The Lad Bible', 'GiffGaff', 'Simba Mattresses', ' Gosh!', and has performed as part of various touring theatre groups notably 'Dick Whittington' as the title role for Lada Productions, A-Level awareness show 'Choices' for Soloman Theatre.

    Alongside acting John works as a writer, his debut short screenplay 'Downward Seb' was directed by Vijay D. Varu and is currently in post production aiming for a festival release in late 2020/early 2021. John also plays the title role of Seb. To produce the picture John teamed with up with successful production company Scene 97 , and subsequently co-produced by setting up with own production company Colour Me In Productions. John is working on a feature screenplay, and collaborating on various short film screenplay projects. During the Covid-19 lockdown, John wrote 'Solitude' , a series of short films that take place entirely through the medium of a webcam, all three films are available online in which John also directed one of the films and starred the final film 'Occupied' . Alongside screenwriting John also writes non-fictional work, most recently he wrote an article on his experiences with health anxiety online (bevoya.com/blog/confessions-health-anxiety-hypochondriac) and this past year John has been working on a memoir that explores his discovery of his own masculinity being a young adult.

    John also is an established singer/songwriter. His debut EP 'The Recall' was praised by bloggers and received a play on BBC Introducing, alongside a live performance for UNILAD sound as an artist to watch. He has worked as a vocalist and songwriter for various artists, notable 'Identity' which peaked at #12 on the Italian iTunes chart. John also performs as the vocalist and songwriter for his band 'China Moon', their EP 'Sleep Talking' has been praised by critics, “Manchester three-piece, China Moon, are, I confidently predict, a band you will soon be hearing about on national radio."
