Oliver first considered acting at the age of 9, when a teacher said to him, “You’re loud. Try Acting”. With that small amount of encouragement, Oliver enrolled in a local theatre program and has not looked back since. His insatiable love for the performing arts grew as a young adult, resulting in his receiving the John Bell Scholarship in 2019. Deciding to leave his hometown of Newcastle in 2021 to pursue his passion, Oliver was delighted to be accepted into ACA’s Bachelor Degree Program.
During his time at ACA, Oliver had the pleasure of performing the following roles: Konstantin in The Seagull, Roland Henning in Toy Symphony, Alcock in The Libertine, multiple roles in The Laramie Project, Fabian in Twelfth Night, Simon in The Business, Writer in The Return, and Gramme in The Carnivores.
Oliver is a keen and zealous actor, who is excited to explore his passion on both stage and screen. Next year he will be touring with Bell Shakespeare’s learning ensemble, The Players.
