Tell us about the process of becoming an actor
It started when I auditioned for reality TV show Big Brother in 2009. Although I didn’t make it into the house, I made some vital contacts, which led to my first screen role, as a doorman, in 2011 film weekender
Tell me about a time where you had difficulty turning yourself into a character. What was the character and why was it challenging?
Maleficent 2014 I was one of King Henry’s soldiers. We were fighting against the blue screen with numerous mythical creatures, which did not exist, getting into the character fighting something, which isn’t actually there, was quite challenging
What was your most memorable role? Why?
It has to be BBC soap EastEnders, I play a Walford FC football player. It is just a small extra part but I have wanted to appear in Eastenders since I was a very young age. It won’t be screening until later this year.
I also got down to the final two people to play Johnny Depp’s double in the Alice in Wonderland Sequel. Unfortunately, I did not get the part, but to be told you look like Johnny Depp can’t be bad can it?

What have you learned from the directors that you have work with throughout your career?
How to take direction and really come out of yourself to play your role
