Starting with a few small roles in short films made in Cambridge, I'm now getting larger roles in short films and feature films, in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and London. I'm always looking for the next opportunity, and are excited to get involved with new projects.

I am an experienced creature prosthetics model for Gorton Studios, a SFX prosthetic makeup school run by Millennium FX. I have also modelled in a promotional fashion photoshoot as an alien for "Men In Black: International". I'd very much like to do more creature work in film, as well as more traditional acting roles.

In August 2018 I did the "Firearms: Military & Tactical" course for actors run by Independent Drama. I have a fair amount of experience with firearms and military tactics, having been an avid airsofter for many years (including training courses), and visited a number of real firing ranges in the US.

I am also a motorcyclist as well as car driver, and I got quite far with karate training a number of years ago. While I'm out of practice, I do still understand body positioning and movement.

Extras

Extras experience

Previous featured extras roles


I was lucky that my first ever extras job was as a Stormtrooper in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

Other extras roles include:

• "Cursed" (Netflix) - Papal Guard
• "Obsession" (TV) - US Cop / Bar drinker
• "Solo: A Star Wars Story" - factory worker

Modelling

Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work


All of my modelling has been in extensive creature prosthetic makeup, mainly for Gorton Studio. However, I was also selected to model for Paul Smith suits as a "Men In Black: International" alien.

I have also modelled for Cantor & Nissel at The Prosthetics Event https://www.theprostheticsevent.co.uk/, which involved custom prosthetics and application by Morgan Kimber, custom teeth from Fangs FX, and custom full-sclera contact lenses from Cantor & Nissel.
