Acting Testimonials

Civil Unrest - Unrestless

I had the pleasure of directing Ian on a recent Old Vic New Voices production of Unrestless.

Ian's a generous, bright and gifted actor - he brings a friendly, can-do energy to any rehearsal room and consistently contributed great suggestions, offers and ideas. Ian's also not afraid to get his hands dirty, and has great physical skills. He's unpretentious and professional - a delight to work with.

I can thoroughly recommend Ian for any and all role that would benefit from his enthusiasm, humour and professionalism.

Delifrance - Health & Safety

Outtakes has worked with Ian on a number of different projects, some with other actors, some with our clients' employees on their industrial and commercial sites. He is fun to work with, utterly convincing in any part we give him, quick thinking and brilliant at improvising on the spot. He is always our first choice when it comes to casting.

Boeing Boeing National Tour

As the Assistant Director on Boeing Boeing I was in the prime position to observe Ian take on the task of understudying with great empathy and maturity. As well as learning the role he went that vital step further in making it his own and delivering it with confidence and passion. It was a delight to work with him and a delight to watch him on stage. The man will go far and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him in the future. I know the producers at ACT were also delighted with his progress and time both on and off stage.

Ernst & Young Training Event, Rome 2011

We employed Ian at fairly short notice in the lead role of a corporate drama that we filmed over the course of two days. That fact that he is a talented and very competent actor goes without saying.

What struck us was that he held the whole production together, and did so with unfailing charm, good humour and professionalism. He is really is a joy to work with.
