I wasn't born thinking I want to be an actor but it has always been there at the back of my mind. The thought of being on stage doesn't frighten me. I've played in numerous bands and as long as I'm giving something which has been well thought out I'm quite relaxed. I've quite an open nature which is responsive to the thoughts and ideas of others. I'm naturally questioning, almost irreppressibly honest in myself, not necessarily with others. I tend to be quite spontaneous without giving too much thought for the future. I've a very good memory and am pretty good at improvising in new situations.
A girlfriend once told me people are all the same. While I was outraged at the time its a thought thats stayed with me ever since. A good actor is someone I can relate to, recognise a little of myself in. I think to be a good actor you have to be able to see yourself in other people, see yourself in another's shoes. Someone who to an extent can forget themselves.
Save for a little acting at school where I wrote a sketch about the inquiry into the sinking of the Titanic joining Instant Theatre is the first move I have taken into acting. I would like to see how I get on and get some honest feedback.
39, 6"1, balding. Attended Ampleforth (a public school) and then Lancaster University where I studied languages. Have worked in numerous jobs from courier through chefing to journalism. Love reading and happiest when out walking.
I found there was the room to communicate in a way you would do everyday if there weren't other things to consider. It provided the room to be yourself and left it up to you whether you make the most of that. Diana was as on the ball as you can be, remembering what everyone had said and done thereby giving the spontaneity of the say a thread which brought it all together. Well done x
