Biography

BOVTS: Duke of Suffolk in Henry VI: Days of Rebellion, M in Lungs, Dr. Yevgeny Dorn in The Seagull, Macbeth in Macbeth. Pre-BOVTS: Pequeno Saúl in AVENUE Q (Portual, Teatro Trindade, Teatro Maria Matos), Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet (Portugal, O Filho de Meio). Training: BA in History (Nova University Lisbon), Musical Theatre intensive summer (New York Film Academy), Voice/Acting workshops with Patsy Rodenburg (PT), Jo Kelly (RESET), Diana Castle (Imagined Life LA), Tiago Félix (Lucid Body NYC), Jorge Parente (La Voix, Lisbon).

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
