Kevin tells us, “My love of acting both in film and theatre has been a passion since my early teens. “I’ve been a professional actor in London for five years since graduating from the Arts University, Bournemouth in 2010. “I’ve acted in and been involved with various British film, TV and theatre projects. The most memorable experiences so far have been my time at Shakespeare’s Globe in ‘Blue Stockings’ and playing Reggie Kray in feature films ‘Rise of the Krays’ & ‘Fall of The Krays. “My professional career started with my graduating show ‘Dracula’, playing the title role in an adaptation

of Bram Stoker‘s novel at the Lighthouse Theatre, Poole. After that I was in a number of fringe productions and short films, building on my acting, directing and producing skill-sets.

“The East End is rich in culture and history and I thoroughly enjoyed delving into that world.”

“My first big break through role in a British film came when I was cast as the lead in ‘Pearls of Africa’, which gave me the life changing experience of filming in Kenya as

well as England. “Since then I’ve worked on a number of interesting projects, including spending four months touring with the ETT/Shakespeare’s Globe in ‘Eternal Love’, when I was lucky enough to go on as the understudy lead in Edinburgh to impressive reviews”.
