Joshua Stevens

I’m a young actor looking to meet more people in the industry and start to get out there i have a wealth of experience both in education and as part of small theater groups and films

I’ve had a passion for drama since year 6 but never had the chance to unlock my potential until i joined a small theatre group in filton called Wemo theatre, this i felt layed the foundations for me to excell vastly when i went into college to do a acting diploma and have since come leaps and bounds with evergrowning knowlage and experiance i can advance my skills further still.

Variety is the spice of life and I love to play variety’s of characters I can tackle multi-roles with ease and can develop each characters with equal deph while making all completely different to each other

I enjoy looking into the crazier side of drama with qwerky characters and nonsecal plot lines even have written my own peices with both these features but the secret is bringing a degree of subtlty to the crazy and degree of crazy to the subtlety in all performances

When producing a production I’m willing to do most if not all things required to make the production the best it can be, Ive tried my hands at some simple level stage combat movement sequences including lifts,dancing,singing even wearing a dress to play juliet.

Some of my biggest inspirations are Johnny Depp,Robert Downey Jr,Will Smith,Jack Black, my music, my friends and life
