I am extremely privileged to live on a hill in a quiet, remote part of the Yorkshire Dales. I went to a primary school with 30 pupils in the whole school a chicken and a rabbit; it was just like a home from home.
It is my primary school I have to thank for encouraging me to sing and act - I suppose they had to find something I was good at as I am certainly not an academic. It was while at school I was asked to audition for the part of Oliver with the local Operatic Society. That was it: I was hooked, all I could think about was my performance I just loved every moment and wanted to perform again and again.
Then came Dan Hartley, the director of Lad: A Yorkshire Story who advertised for teenagers to audition for a part in his film. I didn't really think I stood much of a chance. However, I was overjoyed to have been given the part.
Being in a feature film taught me so much about the film industry. I was mentored by people who have worked in the industry for many years, many of them working on Harry Potter. Every day was a new experience and I cherish my time with them all.
The film 'Lad' took me to the US; I went to Houston to collect my Gold Remi for Best Actor and met the legendry Lee Majors. I have since received two more Best Actor awards. I have appeared on live TV and radio. I am now use to speaking in front of large audiences as I have been to many screenings of the film, introducing it and holding a question and answer session after the showing.
After filming for 'Lad' finished I was 14 and at a loose end so I decided to see what it would be like on the other side of the camera, making my own short film (you can view the film by clicking on videos). I loved the making of the film; it was just the editing that did not inspire me. I also presented my own radio programme every Saturday morning.
At 18 I moved to London to try my hand as a trainee in the video play back department working on 'Star Wars 8', 'The Commuter' and 'On Chisel Beach' which was just an amazing experience.
I am passionate about acting and will always work hard and give my best. I am currently looking for my next challenge so please feel free to contact me if you feel you have a suitable part for me.
