Jackson Allen

Age: 17

Hi, I’m Jackson and I have a passion for acting. I joined BSPA in 2017 and since then I have not stopped acting and still gaining as much experience as I can along the way and enjoying every minute of 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 The North Belfast Youth Choir; we have competed in lots of competitions and I can’t until we can get back to rehearsals.
With my love of all things movie related I attend Cinemagic Jury Panels each year and review films from around the world. During lock-down I kept myself busy by taking part in virtual Cinemagic jury panels and also contributing to the Cinemagic YouTube TV channel with my Stay at Home Movie reviews.  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.
