Actor/ presenter

As an actor you might perform on stage, on TV, in films, performance art pieces or radio and voice pieces. Like dancing, acting is usually a portfolio career (unless you play Ken Barlow) so you might also teach or work in arts development, for example. Presenters are often also actors and have a similar job to do in entertaining their audience and communicating information or a story to them.

Being surrounded by students and staff who are dedicated to acting was so inspirational for me. The Manchester College provided me with that environment. It was the best choice I could have made to help me pursue my dream of becoming an actor.
