    Hi, I’m Jackson and I have a passion for acting. I joined BSPA two years ago and in that time my life has not stopped…. and I love it!
    I enjoy learning lines, going for auditions and meeting new people. I love being on stage and in front of the camera.
    I like the challenging auditions where I have to speak in a different accent as I feel accents are one of my strong points.
    My other interests are gaming and movies…. which is where I pick up a lot of my accents from. I am also part of my school choir and part of Harmony North Choir; we have recently performed with the Ulster Orchestra.
    With my love of all things movie related I attend Cinemagic Jury Panels each year and review films from around the world, I was lucky enough to be chosen to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they visited NI this year to discuss what I do as jury panel member. I would love to become a successful actor in the TV and Film industry. I am very hard working, respectful, professional and adaptable to any character that I play
