Matthew - Young Company

Matthew - Young Company

Matthew first started coming to the Belgrade’s Youth Theatre in 2013. His first stage performance ever was as Propsero in the 2014 Young Company production of The Tempest, a significant role for any actor, let alone a first timer.

In 2015 he was cast in another leading role, in the Senior Youth Theatre production The Impossible Language of the Time, written by Coventry writer Chis O’Connell. His experience at the Belgrade spurred him on to pursue a career in acting and from September 2016 he’ll be attending Drama Centre London to embark on 3 years of professional training.

“The main benefit I’ve got from it is the platform that it gives you…and that’s grown my confidence now to audition for [drama] schools and start getting out there into the world of acting.”
