Working one on one with students/actors I really go by what they need from me. It’s about working with what is in front of you and so my style will change and adapt based on who I’m working with. I always succeed in getting the best out of my actors.
I am from London. I studied TheatreStudies at University of Glasgow (2.1) and then went on to complete the BA In Acting at Rada. I’ve spent three years in the West End performing and have recently moved towards directing and teaching as I find it incredibly rewarding.
Fred helped me enormously during rehearsals and performance in my first big theatre role out of drama school. I suffered greatly with performance anxiety and he helped remove the enormous pressure I felt by guiding me and offering solutions in times of doubt. In truth he made my whole experience a complete pleasure. He is a joy to work with as a fellow actor and I would trust him with any material to work with as a tutor. He has brilliant attention to detail and always works with a confident calming approach.
Not only is Fred one of the kindest and most supportive people I know, he is more than qualified to give acting lessons. As well as having studied at one of the most well-known and prestigious drama schools in the UK, Fred also has a plethora of experience from fringe to West End theatre and from ensemble casts and leading roles to directing shows himself. I would not hesitate to recommend Fred to anyone and absolutely would trust him with giving acting lessons. You will not be disappointed!
I have known Fred for several years and have worked with him onstage. He has helped me through some difficulties I was experiencing with keen insight, patience, and a vivid sense of empathy. He is one of the most intelligent directors I know and a gifted actor. I don’t say this lightly: it is a rare privilege to learn from Fred.
I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher to help me on the path to become a better & stronger performer.
He put me through my paces from the basics, to the secret tricks of the trade!
CANT RECOMMEND ENOUGH!!!
Having worked with Fred in the West End for a year, he was always the first person I came to when I was having difficulty with a moment in the show. His eye for truth, detail and comic timing is second to none, and he will always approach the work in a constructive, collaborative way rather than just 'telling you what you're doing wrong'. Couldn't recommend him enough.
Fred is the most patient teacher I have ever worked with, truly brings out the best in everyone, without being intimidating or pushy, which in my experience is rare.
He has made me a better performer, no doubt. I would 100% recommend anyone to go to Fred.
