  • Additional Skills

    I take direction well.I learn and remember lines quickly and I love improvisation.I work well both independently and in a group situation.Working with younger children and babies is a pleasure for me.I have good ad libbing skills and I am also fab at lip syncing.This is a particular favourite skill of mine that I love to perform.My enjoyment of learning different accents is growing,particularly American accents and Indian.I am very good at Middle Eastern accents as my father is from the Middle East.This has enabled me to pick up other languages very easily.

    Additional Information

    I train at the Bafta award winning TV Workshop Nottingham.

    Grade 1 awarded in graded examination in musical theatre with merit (solo exam) by Trinity College London Dec 2016.

    I studied tap dancing for two years.

    Debbie Isitt-writer and film director wrote about Yusef as being a very charming and talented boy.

    I am experienced in theatre work and when I worked with the fabulous Jon Moses (Andrew Lloyd Webber's ITV Superstar) on his World Tour 'Journey' he spoke of me as having 'great character.'

    During my time at Stageschool I was also privaleged to have worked under the direction of West End actress Ashley J Russell (Andrew Lloyd Webber's I'd Do Anything,Shrek amongst other productions).Ashley wrote in my end of year report that I held a strong position in my drama class

    I also enjoy reading,basket ball, football and science experiments(particularly making slime) in my leisure time.

    I am also a computer wiz especially in editing.
