Joshua is a professional, Bristol-based actor with a wide breadth of experience within film, television, theatre, improvisation and voice-over work.
Acting and performing have been strong passions for Joshua from a very young age. During his youth, he was a member of the Italia Conti Associate school in Wokingham, where he undertook classes in Acting, Jazz, Singing and Musical Theatre.
Through the integrated agency at Italia Conti, he was involved in a number of projects for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, and during his school / university years he performed a variety of improvised and scripted pieces with student societies and local drama groups.
Joshua has just returned from a highly succesful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, touring with Tobacco Tea Theatre's 'The Accidental Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' and 'Parish Fête-ality: A Game of Scones.''
More recently, he has worked with Fake Escape Theatre in 'Can You, Err..?' for the Bath Drama Festival, and completed a 5* run of Tawdry Lace Theatre's 'Travels with My Aunt' by Graham Greene. He has also toured with The Fringe Files, bringing 'Samantha' to the Woking Drama Festival, where he was nominated for the Handley-Jones cup for best supporting actor by the UK Guild of Drama Adjudicators.
Joshua is always looking to expand his range of experiences and work on new projects with professionals in the industry. If you would like to speak with him regarding upcoming projects then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
