What is your current day job and role with YAFTA?

Acting Tutor covering all classes and groups

What was your first job in the industry, was the acting industry always the plan?

First Job was in the feature film ‘West is West’ playing Hughes, the school bully. I have wanted to act ever since me and my Dad watched Men Behaving Badly when I was younger, my whole career is basically a love letter to Martin Clunes.

What is your favourite/best TV moment?

The second series of Peaky Blinders. Just all of Peaky Blinders really. It’s TV that doesn’t apologise for what it is. Nor does it get dumbed down. In the second series there is a scene where Cillian Murphy thinks he is going to die, he has his ‘last’ cigarette closes his eyes and says…… In the Bleak Mid-Winter

What one piece of advice would you give to those starting out in the industry?

You have to have a very strong work ethic because there is always somebody working harder than you.

Cillian Murphy, Joaquin Phoenix and Sofia Coppola
