James Sampson Creative Director


I was cast as the titular 76 year old for The British Theatre Academy. I wanted to make the performance as realistic as possible. I took notes on my grandfather's walking style to get the slowness of the movement and I learned the West Country Accent on YouTube.

The production received 5 star reviews and I was asked to interview for BBC London.
