  • Additional Skills

    I have been acting since summer 2016, where I starred in my first role of 'Fizzy' in the theatre production of 'Bugsy Malone' at the Lyric Theatre. I did this for three months.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this and went on to applying for more roles such as these. My next role was a walk on role for a you tube video called 'Prank Me'.

    After this I landed another role in a music video for an artist named 'Ramz' the video was called 'Family Tree' where i played the younger version of Ramz. Not long after this i landed another role as Mr Mudge in the theatre prduction Annie at the Compass Theatre.

    My last role i was currently involved in a short film called 'When the night comes'. I played the lead role of a young boy 'Miles'.

    Since then I have continued to be successful and had the opportunity of playing main characters in a TV series for Sky Italia and a music video for the artist MorMor.

    I have a great passion for acting and I am looking to build on my experience already gained so I can embark on future projects such as the ones I have done previously.

    About me

    My name is Mekai Manu

    I have always wanted to be in the entertainment industry from around the age of 7, as I describe myself to be someone who always has a lot of energy. I have a passion for acting, making music and dancing. My favourite subject at school is Drama and Music. When I finish my GCSES I hope to be able to carry on my passion within this field and attend the BRIT school in London.
