I have been playing the role of "Johnny" in Tracy Beaker Returns (and now The Dumping Ground) since age 12. Filming takes place in Newcastle over a period of three months. The CBBC drama has won both a BAFTA and RTS award for best children's drama.

I have also filmed the guest lead role in two episodes of BBC's "Doctors" and co-presented on live TV at the CBBC office.

I've played the lead role in several short films for the director, Ron Wright. I was cast for "Fawn" by Nicci Topping and was invited by the same director to star in "Eldon Hole" and "Eighth Day".
Other Casting Directors I have seen include Sue Needleman and Clare Ewing.
I am a member of Equity.
