    Story

    Under my stage name of Austin Staton, I have been working as professional actor on and off for the past 15 years. I have now been given a phenomenal opportunity to further my acting craft and career by being offered a place to study a 15 month post graduate acting course at The Giles Foreman Centre for Acting.

    I have managed to raise half of the fees for the course myself and am looking for the other 50% towards the course.

    The acting philosophy at the studio developed from that of the original Drama Centre London under Christopher Fettes, Yat Malmgren and Reuven Adiv, who together trained some of the leading UK actors of recent years from Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Simon Callow to Helen McRory, Anne Marie Duff, Paul Bettany,, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy, Santiago Cabrera and John Simm to name but a few with Christopher Fettes now teaching masterclasses at the Giles Foreman Centre.

    I would be receiving some of the best acting training available in the world. I have worked long and hard to pursue my dream of being a full time professional actor. I've had great opportunities working in feature films, short films, television and theatre. However I have never had the opportunity to take that next step to be continuously working. I believe that opportunity has now arrived.

    With your support I'd be able to study at the centre allowing me the opportunity to begin a new and prosperous chapter in my acting career. Recent graduates have been signed to the top acting agents in the UK and are working all over the world in a variety of jobs.

    Anything you are able to give will help me get one step closer of being a successful and in demand actor. I truly believe in Kharma and I will not forget the support that I receive from any of you.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and to those of you who know me will know how hard I really have worked. Help me to reach my dream if you can.

      Lucys message struck home. I also sponsored Frasers Blue Plaque project. For that reason, in Fray's memory, I'm donating what i tried to give then. It's a small amount but I wish you much luck! x
