Josh is currently playing Shem a lead in Not the End of the World. This is a new musical for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which received 5 stars the British Theatre Guide.

Recently Josh completed filming for a new BBC1 4 part psychological crime drama playing 'Ollie Hind' alongside Anne-Marie Duff and Johnny Harris following a guest lead 'David Williams' in the BBC1 drama Doctors 'Between The Cracks'. This following last years theatre productions at The Rose Theatre, Kingston; The Ragged Child as 'Tommy, The Crossing Sweeper' and Soul Music as 'Dibbler, The Band Manager'. He was cast to play the part of JEM in the BBC production ‘Hetty Feather’ but filming clashed with the Ragged Child.

Josh co-wrote and showcased his first play/drama 'The Wasp' in 2013/14 at The Lowry Theatre. No stranger to professional theatre, Josh has had principle roles in productions such as All My Sons, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and The Winslow Boy working with The Octagon Theatre / David Thacker.

Professional credits include TV, Film, Theatre & Musical Theatre.

Modeling

Modeling experience:
  Part-time model - paid commercial work
At 5' 8" Josh will not pass for a catwalk model! However as a teenage Actor | Singer he has had plenty of experience in front of camera and with live audiences, he is in shape with a strong physique and the camera likes him. Over the years he has completed many photo shoots for different projects and he is up for most challenges providing the project is unlikely to impact negatively on his career as a professional Actor and Singer.
