Thank you, such a brilliant audience, night after night!

I’d like to take this some what belated opportunity to say thank you to all the people who came to see The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.

From the opening night to the closing, every night was a delight to perform in this energetic and brilliantly written play. Not only because of the writing, the excellence of my fellow cast and the skill of the director, but mainly because of the warmness we all received from the audience.

Without the audience, their enthusiasm and goodwill, it wouldn’t have been the out and out success it was.

Some said it was “the best thing Motherwell College had ever done!”, high praise indeed considering the quality of the plays and musicals the college has done in the last few years!

Thank you again, to everyone who saw The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, on behalf of the cast, director- Gregor Duncan, all involved, thank you!

Oliver would like to thank the audience of Epsom Downs, who night after night, brought excitement and warmth. Oliver and the rest of the cast could not of performed with such energy and freedom without it.

Epsom Downs was a complete success and a joy to be a part of.

I will performing in 
EPSOM DOWNS
at the East Kilbride Arts Centre this November. 

The play, set at the 1977 Derby, is directed by Richard Addison.

I will be gambler turned preacher, Jim Tillotson, who used to frequent casinos both legal and illegal in Soho- Windmill Street amongst other places.

I will be part of a strong cast where we all play more than one character, some not even human. I also turn up as the Aga Khan.

Come to the EK Arts Centre, see if ol’ Lester on the Minstrel romps home in the Derby-

I’ll give you good odds!

As I walk out of my apartment for the final time tonight, I will look back on two months of my life that has gone in a blink of an eye.
I’ve met some incredibly talented actors from around the world and trained with some wise teachers.
I may not have been plucked from nothingness to become the next big thing, but that was never the point. I’ve gained a lot, learnt a great deal, mainly outside the classroom and got a handle on where I’m going as an actor.
I could of managed to fit more in, meet some celebs, but really, if it meant not spending as much time with the new friends (and future stars) that I’ve made, then it would have been a loss.
There’s so many people to name but a special thank you and goodbye goes to Nicole A Watson, my flat mate and friend. My new partner in crime, Simon Davey and of course the C-Section class, such a great group of people, it was an absolute pleasure being in that class, it really was.
Also, I’d like to thank and say goodbye to my Advanced Camera class and our teachers- again I was blessed to join another group of talented and lovely people, going to miss you too, even though I only met you guys a fortnight ago.
We’re all keeping in contact and I leave LA with an international network of not only talented actors but also a network of close, close friends.

Thank you all, it made my summer so, so much more complete, heartfelt and memorable, and so much more than the actor training I planned it to be!

Busy summer ahead…

Having completed what was a highly stimulating and rewarding first year at Motherwell College, on the Acting and Performance course, Oliver has a jam packed summer ahead.

Oliver was one of the very lucky 20 students to make it into the second year of the Acting and Performance course. Oliver however has a great deal of work ahead of him before he returns to Motherwell College at the end of August.

Oliver is heading to Los Angeles to spend seven weeks studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Honing his skills as an actor and learning stage combat amongst other new skills.

Having successfully portrayed Dale Harding in the college’s production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Oliver is looking forward to to his time in LA, to push himself further and learn new theories and practises over the summer before getting straight into the first production of the second year where he will apply what he has learnt.

Oliver is very much looking forward to the challenges, experiences and opportunities ahead of him this summer.
