Will Jordan

Age: 25 yrs & 3 mths

Ever since I was a child performing in school plays, I knew I wanted to work in the creative industries. Seeing children of a similar age to me on screen made me believe that I could do it. Throughout secondary school, I threw myself into drama, and even spent some time behind the camera. This took me through to university, where I graduated in 2019. After returning to Northern Ireland later that year from England, I began my acting journey in earnest when I was accepted onto the Lyric Theatre, Belfast’s prestigious Drama Studio Programme. Since then, I have been working tirelessly to achieve my acting goals, while also working as a mixed martial arts instructor.

Skills

In addition to acting, I have a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Film Production from the Media City campus at the University of Salford. I also receive praise for my writing, particularly for my narrative skills and poetic rhetoric. Primarily I am a screenwriter, but I have also written monologues, a short stage play and attempted prose. Following on from this, I have demonstrated some stage combat experience in productions of Dracula and West Side Story. I can sing with a baritone voice. I'm currently training as a mixed martial artist, working towards my black belt. I also teach the martial arts to children and adults alike.

Performance Training

Aside from achieving an A in A-Level Drama, I began my acting training with the Lyric Theatre in their Drama Studio programme, which covered all aspects of acting. Since then, I have involved myself in as many workshops and courses as I can such as casting workshops, Meisner courses, Shakespeare intensives, screen acting hangouts, voice acting masterclasses and general acting lessons. I also take singing lessons, covering different styles like rock, pop and indie.
