Samuel is an artist, musician and performer based in London. He has been acting since he was six years old and has been a professional actor for the past two years.
He is perhaps best known for his role as Scorpius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on London's West End. He is currently appearing in The Ocean at The End of The Lane at the National Theatre in London, and has also appeared in Peaky Blinders and Pennyworth.
In this lecture, Samuel will share some of the experiences from his first youth theatre show, to applying for drama school and ultimately working in what can be a difficult and challenging industry. He will discuss the key ideas behind theatre and screen acting, and the way actors prepare for roles, offering an insight into how his work crosses over into everyday life. He will also share the importance of how drama, theatre and acting can help everyone speak confidently and honestly, and aid general wellbeing, regardless of whether or not they plan to build a career in acting.
