A Family Affair

Toby Burchell

Since then he has taken on ambassadorial roles within the company helping to run auditions days around England. He has also worked with a new writing company ‘Itch + Scratch’ at London based events in venues such as The Hatton Garden Diamond Vault and The Park Lane Hotel. Toby has also performed at The Other Room Theatre, Cardiff working on ‘The Language of Violence’ by Mathew Bulgo.

Ramin Farahani

After leaving the glittering world of office administration Ramin decided to pursue acting with The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, from which he graduated in 2015. His most recent theatre credits include Macbeth (St Michael’s Theatre), Cinderella Land (Putney Arts Theatre) and The Miracle (Embassy Theatre). In addition to this he has been in many independent shorts, most recently as the lead for a Channel 4 short ‘Taxi’ as part of their ‘3 Minute Wonders’ season, due for broadcast in April 2018. Check out his first television appearance for Microsoft back in 2012 – https://vimeo.com/46776338. Whilst his career has advanced since then, sadly the same cannot be said for his once flourishing hairline. The things that Ramin most looks forward to on this tour is collaborating with his fellow actors and director, and interacting with pupils at the many schools he and the team will visit throughout. Who knows, he might even pick up some handy German along the way: Gib mir den Ketchup!
