Thatisbeyond…Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

For those that know me personally, it will be no surprise that I really enjoyed Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. It will probably be more of a surprise that I have only got around to watching the film tonight! The Harry Potter series has never let me down before, and I am pleased […]

ThatIsBeyond… A festive night with #christmasatkew

Sometimes an impromptu magical evening is required to lift the Christmas spirits! So with some mulled wine a winter scarf and of course the amazing company of my wife and friends, I embarked on a magical journey around Kew Gardens… Here is a little photo journey!      This amazing trail began with a bit of […]

ThatIsBeyond…The Mousetraps, The theatre awards that really matter.

Once a year, the elite of theatre round up the awards season with an event created by and voted for by young people. THE MOUSETRAPS is that event and the cream of West End theatre was out in force to collect the hotly contested awards.  It’s always an honour to be invited to an […]

ThatIsBeyond… Breaking Free Of Your Routine.

Having been gifted a long weekend this past four days, I decided to change things up a little bit. Between career development, the running of a household and life in general, it difficult to introduce some spontaneity.

ThatIsBeyond… My bohemian sister and a change of perspective.

My sister is very bohemian, and I adore that about her; one of the most determined people I know she gets stuff done, but never stops asking “why?” In her head. For quite a while my sister bought me cow memorabilia, everything from a mooing waste paper basket to a toasted sandwich maker! When after […]

ThatIsBeyond… The art of the quick change.

A quick post on the art of the quick change. Now I’m not talking about the quick change artists who rely on magic and layers upon layers of clever costumes. This is not about the illusion of a quick change, but instead the basics of quickly getting out of one costume and into another! Number […]

Thatisbeyond… A mile in someone else’s shoes

They say before you make judgement, that you should walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. This is a mantra that I use for life, but also my development as an actor.buy recently I’ve been wondering about whether the shoes and clothes that I wear can help me develop as a person, also. As well […]

Thatisbeyond… Why I need to act like a fool!

My time at drama school was partly about learning to be a fool, by the end of an intense year, I felt like I was getting there, and that I could happily perform without the fear of judgement. But the years since have not given me as much opportunity as I would like, to explore […]
