Hugh has been acting since 1998 when he first went to the Edinburgh Festival (with Double Edge Drama Company), having realised that his desire to ‘tread the boards’ outweighed the risk of inevitable humiliation. Since then he has acted with Bristol University Drama Society, King’s Players and SEDOS. Highlights include playing Oedipus in Oedipus Rex at the Greenwood Theatre in 2004 and Guildenstern in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at the Bridewell in 2009.
He is currently studying full time at the London International School of Performing Arts and is in rehearsals for a short film named Ortolan directed by Ian Giles.
As the photo attests his specialty is looking earnest in a moustache, he also has a pretty mean set of ‘jazz hands’ and can do a passable Bristolian accent.
