    Dear Chocolate Solider: Review on Mark Aspen's blog:

    "Hassall’s letters, performed ably by Simon Brandon in authentic-looking World War One khaki, are interspersed with songs from the period, as well as poems, and short dramatic scenes extrapolated from the correspondence...All three actors reveal that they are also strong singers, with Simon Brandon’s voice ringing out particularly strong"

    About me

    I returned to the industry in the Summer of 2017, having worked in the antiques trade for a few years. I originally hail from Bexley in Kent, currently living in Dartford. (A short train ride from Central London). Work has been diverse, ranging from roles in the classics - Pericles, to a part in horror movie Zombie Spring Breakers, starring Emily Atack and Matt King. I tend to veer towards quirky character roles. Sci-fi Shakespeare webseries - A Throne of Shadows, which I'm producing and starring in is no exception!

    I have been in a number of stage productions, venues including The Shaw Theatre, London and the Jersey Opera House. I got the accolade of being lugubrious (love it):

    "Simon Brandon playing the servant Trembinsky is perfectly lugubrious and sly." Remotegoat

    If you are interested in working together, do drop me a line about your project. Meanwhile I hope you have a great day and thanks for popping by. To check out A Throne of Shadows, please head on over to our website: www.athroneofshadows.com. All the very best to you :)
