Here is our cast for 'Stanley'

After our audition process we managed to cast actors for our up and coming film 'Stanley'

Everyone who attended and all who video auditioned performed fantastically which made the decision of who to cast really tough.  But after much deliberation we came to a decision. 

Please take a look below:

Please give a warm welcome to 'Stanley' who will be played by Nick Huskisson

Nick has always had an interest in film making and acting from a very early age, taking part in as many plays as possible at School.

He studied a degree at Stafford University in Film & Cultural Studies, and sometime later decided to pursue his dream of becoming an actor by contacting Jo Adamson Parker, Director of the N: Das School of Acting.

Since then Nick has been involved with several short film and theatre productions, and benefitted from a close association with Simon Hare and Moving Eye Productions.

Sweet 16 (swat team no. 3 and policeman) – An independent film by Simon hare

The Estate (lead role – Kevin Hart) – An independent film by Jordan Japal

Blood Brothers theatre production (milkman, doctor & policeman) – Winner of the Wharfdale Theatre Awards ‘Best Dramatic Play’ by Northern Spark Theatre Company.

Since returned to acting in 2010 Tony has played leading roles in over sixty short films and three feature films, and he adores the process of making films.

He has also acted in simulated patients, murder mysteries and

He was a full time professional actor from 1972 to 1979, when there were very few opportunities for film acting in the pre-digital 'film' age.

Tony was born and bred in Leeds. Whilst working for BBC Radio Leeds in 1985, he heard of the death of a former pupil from a glue sniffing accident.

This led him to produce a series on drugs, which in turn led into the public health field, where he developed a particular and passionate interest in tobacco and alcohol issues.

He continues to work as a consultant in alcohol
harm reduction.

Say hello to John aka Blake Allan

Blake is a 40 something year old actor with distinctive strawberry blonde hair.
