2016Extremely well acted by Bessant, great energy. He connects with the audience with charm. One believes totally in the character.

2016Brilliant to see Theatre tackling challenging topics and demanding so much of an actor, who then smashes it!
Nick Wymer

2015At times funny, at others painfully poignant, the talented and charismatic actor gives a wonderfully empathetic portrayal.

    About me

    Showreel Link: vimeo.com/277464073

    I graduated with honours from Webber Douglas Academy.

    I am a generous, extremely hard working actor on stage.

    I can adapt to any given situation easily, working well under pressure. A great team player. Punctual at all times, and can be trusted to do what is expected of me.

    I have a great deal of experience in working with and in a team, as i have directed a number of theatre shows, and tours.

    I have superb diction, and have an excellent ear for accents. My manner is friendly, non threatening, warm, and inspiring.

    I have a good sense of humour - which I feel is always important. I have a very good rapport with the public.

    Link to TV drama playing murdered Drag queen Kitty Collins:

    Radio play for BBC Archers director Peter Wild: www.thehiveworcester.org/lending-an-ear/?library=bewdley

    I can be seen 24 hours a day on the You Tube film: Twenty Two Thousand CV's playing Andy (The angry character in the pink shirt, approx 1 minute into film...): www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OgIgft4F2o
