  • Additional Skills

    In March 2020 I filmed an international tv commercial for Nintendo Animal Crossings New Horizons.

    I was BAFTA's 2018-2019 Young Presenter after winning my audition in episode 4 of ITV’s ‘The Big Audition’. This means I got to film behind the scenes on kids' TV programmes and attend BAFTA events to interview celebrities for the BAFTA Kids YouTube channel.

    In February 2019 I attended the BAFTA Film Gala to interview guests including Eddie Redmayne, Jason Isaacs, Celia Imrie and Noel Clarke. I also appeared on stage with Claudia Winkleman to talk about presenting for BAFTA Kids. The video Is available on the BAFTA Kids and Teens YouTube channel.

    I attended the BAFTA Children's Awards in November 2018 where I interviewed celebrities on the red carpet. I got to go on stage and present a BAFTA award, and my film was shown on Sky Kids FYI on Sky News on the 1st and 2nd of December 2018.

    I have gone behind the scenes at CBBC's So Awkward and ITV's Scrambled to interview the stars of the shows, and filmed with voice artists and the director at a BAFTA preview screening of Citv’s Robozuna.

    Additional Information

    In the spring of 2019 I filmed two short films with university students. This gave me experience of dramatic acting, taking direction and being filmed from many different angles and with single and double camera setups.

    I played John Darling in The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield. This was a run of 26 shows in December 2017 and January 2018. It was a professional production by PHA Pantos (Paul Holman Associates). I didn't get paid but I got to work with Sam Attwater from Eastenders and Kelli Young from Liberty X. bit.ly/2EICPED

    My first experience on stage was playing Oliver Twist in Oliver! with Chesterfield Operatic Society at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield in 2014. I will also be in Titanic the Musical with them in November 2019.

    In 2019 I performed in Salt by Dawn King for the National Theatre Connections programme with Pomegranate Youth Theatre, at the Rose Theatre in Chesterfield and the Crucible Theatre in Chesterfield.

    About me

    I enjoy dramatic acting and presenting and I am interested in TV, commercial and film acting.

    I am experienced at taking direction, doing pieces to camera and voiceover. I am currently playing ‘Nick’ in the children’s sci-fi series The Luna Squad on Amazon Prime video.

    I attend the Pomegranate Youth Theatre drama workshop and have passed exams in ballet, tap and theatrecraft. I have stage experience in musical theatre and pantomime and also have experience of stage flying.

    I am studying GCSE drama and am a youth member of Chesterfield Operatic Society.

    I attended the TV Training Academy kids presenter training where I learned how to present in front of green screen and read from autocue, and I have experience if filming with single and double cameras.
