THE YAFTA TEAM
Richard Thirlwall

Richard Thirlwall has been performing on stage and screen since he was a child, having found a passion for all manner of storytelling and performance work at a very early age. A keen writer and director, he has also created numerous scripts, plays and films of his own alongside his acting work.

Richard’s training includes studying under the RSC with Sprite productions in 2010, graduating with a 2:1 from Liverpool John Moores University in Drama and Creative Writing BA (Hons) in 2014 and being a former student of YAFTA himself from 2014-2016, winning the award for best actor in 2015.

From plays and musicals, short films, feature films, historical documentaries and even combat demonstrations at the Royal Armouries, a variety of performance work has given him a wealth of experience and abilities that he hopes to impart onto new students.
