My name is Sebastian Charles and I’m a physical theatre performer/actor. Born in the UK. I started my theatrical journey very young as I’m part of a very “performy” family, this took me into TV work in my early teens but I found the love for physical theatre in my late teens which after working with Frantic Assembly, took me to college.
After graduating from East 15 in Southend studying BA in Physical Theatre and Acting, I began my crazy 7 year journey till now.
Performing as an outdoor street theatre clown as my first job post grad, to delving more into dance theatre, to travelling overseas as a lead singer in an a cappella band, performing in Latitude and Riverside Theatre on the Southbank as Puck from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
I’m always looking for something that I know is going to creatively challenge me and a story that I believe in. This took me to Action to the Word’s A Clockwork Orange at the Park Theatre, followed by my journey in War Horse which lasted 18 months. I felt I’d been a horse long enough and wanted to speak, which took me into something a little different and narrated for the English National Ballet. Finally my last adventure before everything took a long theatrical nap was performing in The Bridge Theatre in Sally Cookson’s production of Lion Witch and the Wardrobe, all while selling hats in-between to keep that London roof over me head.
