Joseph Derrington

Having graced the stage at the Royal & Derngate and having appeared on the BBC, Acting student Joseph Derrington has already had numerous professional acting jobs. He also mentors prospective students on the audition process and has a small teaching role aiding the younger years in their daily warm ups.

“I’m still at the stage of getting my name out into the acting industry, as well as networking with as many people as possible. I will face thousands of hurdles every day in terms of competing with other actors for the few acting jobs available, but my studies have expanded my knowledge and skill set, which puts me ahead of some of my competitors.

“The course is of an exceptional academic and professional standard, and the lecturers have a passion for their art which is an inspiration for us students. Our module on industry preparation is giving me tips and ways to network and get more involved.”
