Jack Mc Avoy

Age: 13 yrs & 11 mths

Hey, I’m Jack and my love for performing began when I started to get lead parts at my primary school. I quickly discovered a hidden talent and was enrolled in weekly acting classes. I’m a regular happy go lucky boy, very sociable and fun loving. I enjoy working in a team and I like meeting new people and making friends.

One of my biggest achievements was when I was 10 years old and cast as John Darling in the Grand Opera House Christmas Pantomime. I performed 1 show a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks. A total of 38 shows for over 78, 000 people. Other highlights include 2 short films and TV commercials with  long days on set and numerous night shoots. I was buzzing working on set with all the cast and crew. I take direction well and try to fulfil the director vision for the roles I play. I enjoy stepping in to the shoes of my character and I truly feel that I become that person.

I’m definitely at my happiest when I’m acting, either on stage or on set and I would love the opportunity to grow and develop as a young actor .
