Age: 14
My love for acting began when I started getting lead parts at Primary School. I quickly discovered a hidden talent and my Mum decided to enrol me in weekly acting classes.
I’m a happy-go-lucky school boy who is very sociable and fun-loving. I work well in a team and I like meeting new people and making friends.
One of the biggest highlights of my acting career was when I was 10 years old and cast as John Darling in the Grand Opera House Annual Christmas pantomime. I performed one show a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks. A total of 38 shows for over 78,000 people!
Other highlights include two short films and TV commercials, which required long days on set and numerous night shoots. I was buzzing working on set with all of the cast and crew. I take direction well and try to fulfil the Director’s vision for the roles I play. I step into 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.
