    About me

    Denholm gained a first class honours from The University of Exeter before going on to train as an actor at The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain (NYT) and The Oxford School of Drama.

    He believes strongly in being a "creative" as oppose to settling for any single avenue. He acts, writes, directs, designs, producers and more as long as he has a passion for the project.

    Denholm also runs career consultancy sessions, specialising in actor self-promotion, audition technique and Shakespeare. If you want to find out more drop him an email at **contact removed**
