    Additional Information

    www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/ **contact removed** "Paul Findlay, as Joe, one half of the duo concerned, gave a startlingly good, highly physical performance of a veteran comedian on the edge, he was never less than engaging and often hysterically funny". Theatre Wales

    "Paul is a very methodical, talented and passionate actor, creating a truly believable character for the roles he plays". Richard Lees Director British Film Productions

    "To say that he is perfectly matched by Paul Findlay is an understatement. These two actors have an obvious and easy camaraderie on stage which enables the exceptionally quick fire lines and the sharp retorts to come as if directly from the spleen. Every word and gesture is well aimed, well timed and delivered nigh on perfectly.

    Talking of understatement it's not an understatement to say that both Findlay and Humpherson are destined for much greater things if this performance is to be believed". Remote Goat

    In England, I recently had the opportunity to attend Paul's performance in That's Entertainment, which toured nationally in England, including a performance at the prestigious Jermyn Street Theatre. As reviews in national magazines such as The Stage had led me to expect, Paul carried the double bill of shows. His combination of physical comedy, extreme truthfulness and un-wavering confidence in his character's persona made the event one of the best evening's of theatre I have enjoyed all year. This character piece showed him as a TV personality whose life struggles would be incredibly prescient to an American, as well as a British audience.

    Georgina Sherrington [Worst Witch]

    I met Paul Findlay at the workshop TVI during international week. I gave him and a partner a scene to read. They had 20 minutes to practice with each other and then perform the scene in front of myself and another casting director. Even though it was a cold read for Paul, he did a great job. I was very impressed by the way he took direction and the choices he made for the character. I think it would be a great benefit for Paul to stay in the United States to see where his future can go. I felt that he was a skill full actor that had great stage presence and was very humorous, which are really important qualities in this industry. It would be nice to have Paul try to make it in the United States as an actor it's always good to have a fresh face and strong actor here. Thank you for your time. Farrah West Casting Associate [Lost]

    I have seen Paul Findlay perform, and the talent that he possesses is rare in any country. His awareness of his voice, body and surroundings is something that cannot be taught in an actor. Findlay's comedic timing, natural instincts and ability to mesmerize an audience in any situation make him an irreplaceable gem that must be added in the collection of valuable American performances without further delay. Findlay is versatile and unforgettable. He is able to find a bit of himself in any character he portrays.

    About me

    Winner of Derek Jacobi Award - Best Actor. Winner Of Midland Fringe Festival Best Actor. Five star review received for That's Entertainment on Remote Goat. Four Star Review received by Blanche Marvin for playing Vincent in Distance. Appearing on national television and in cinemas in Accident insurance advert.

    Check out my showreel www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/ **contact removed** Paul Findlay embodies the role of Vincent extremely convincingly, presenting a strong and focused character throughout the play. His confident stance and relaxed physicality at the beginning of the play set him up as an unrepentant, aggressive personality, ready for this to be dissected by his brother. Findlay’s performance was especially moving in moments when was close to tears, but held his emotions back. This consistently made it clear that although he had been hardened by his time in prison and was bound by his overtly masculine identity, Vincent was deeply affected by his childhood experiences of abuse. - See more at: www.ayoungertheatre.com/review-distance-barons-court-theatre/#sthash.qGKNuVLT.dpuf
