John Conway

Actor/Singer - member of Equity, based in London. 
John started acting, singing and dancing whilst at school, following in his mother's semi-professional footsteps. After being raised on Gilbert & Sullivan and many of the standards of musical theatre, John’s experience now includes many genres of theatre, films, commercials, music hall, cabaret, a little choreography, corporate role-play, a turn on a unicycle and some juggling. A variety of characters appear on John’s CV, including a supercilious lawyer, a distraught father, a rat-man, a manic museum curator, a vampire, an early 19th century bailiff and a victim of brutal interrogation. John has also appeared in new works, both musicals and plays, and one of the latter received a 4* review with a special mention for John’s excellent and versatile portrayal of two very different characters. Life as an actor rarely gets more varied!
