2019Matt Turpin's smooth suavely understated Tony Wendice, impressively unruffled convincing us with a rapid mood-swing... Turpin's a model of restraint.

    About me

    I have been acting and directing for many years, originally on a non-professional basis, which later allowed me to gain experience through various professional theatre companies and in a wide range of roles.

    I am experienced as a leading man, in supporting parts and have also played multiple character roles within a chorus setting. I have a background in Shakespeare but am as comfortable with modern pieces as I am traditional.

    I have stage combat experience and in the last few years have had the pleasure of playing a wide range of ages onstage, the youngest being 7 years old and the eldest in his 60's. I am determined in finding an emotional connection to any character I play, this has allowed me to tell the stories of a large range of character types and I look forward to expanding on them. I'm looking for more commercial experience now, to sit along side my theatrical background and to keep working on expanding my skills in all aspects of performance.
