    Additional Information

    I play the keyboard, sing and write music in two bands, and I particularly love Jazz and blues music I have a Baritone voice with a comfortable range of f2 to A4. I also sing and perform with a company called The Story Republic, and we take Cornish poetry, songs and stories to festivals across the South-West, trying to increase the knowledge of cornish language, culture and literature.

    I have always loved to write and am releasing my first collection of spoken word poetry, 'End of the Line,' this summer.

    About me

    Hi I'm Jowan I am a young Cornish actor from Penzance. I love surfing, early morning swims in the sea, cycling and fishing.

    Living in Cornwall, I was lucky to have some great experiences in theatre and film.

    including playing Hugo Leigh in Mark Jenkins' BAFTA winning feature film BAIT.

    I also still have family in Cornwall that I can stay with and I love going back to such a beautiful place with such a vibrant theatre scene.

    My most fond memory of working in theatre was on Wildworks' Wolf's Child. I was part of the wolf pack and we spent six weeks of intensive training trying to inhabit the wolves physicality and pack mentality. This included spending a week with Shaun Ellis, who lived with a wild pack for 2 years and now keeps a pack of his own that he recently saved. We even spent a day inside the enclosure with the pack and he sat us right next to the meat at feeding time, it was incredible, if a little terrifying. Having grown up watching Wildwork's shows and having such amazing memories of their unique and magical ways of telling stories, I felt so lucky to work with them.

    I also run a lot of creative drama workshops for children, I love how they keep you on your toes and are always truly in the moment.
