Acting

Since retiring during Covid I have branched out into a new career as an actor.

My first film was in May 2020 and since then I have been in more than 30 short/student/independent films, approximately 50% as a lead or significant supporting role.

These are not the sort of films you'll be seeing on the BBC or NetFlix, they will be shown at film festivals or used as final year dissertation projects for degrees. But nevertheless, with no acting background, I've been pleased and surprised that I can get any acting jobs. I seem to have hit something of a sweet spot as there don't seem to be many people of my age prepared to do these films. I've very much enjoyed them all however, working with young creative people and going to places that I would otherwise not have found.

These short films enable me, in January 2023, to get onto Spotlight, which is the main platform for professional acting and modelling jobs.

My Spotlight link is https://app.spotlight.com/3599-0162-2057

Then, in October 2023, I was taken on by an acting agency, Destiny Talent.

At the bottom of this page is a list of all the films I have been involved with.  

Those films which have been released to the public can be viewed on my YouTube channel via this link Theo Phizza - YouTube
