Scott Sparrow is an award-winning actor and director originally from Zimbabwe. After completing his BA Honours in Drama at the prestigious Rhodes University in South Africa, Scott co-founded ‘The Mechanicals’, a theatre company which re-introduced repertory theatre back into the country. Performance credits include Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Women Beware Women.
Scott has also written his own work which he has performed around Southern Africa and London. In television, he has acted in programmes for ITV, BBC and SKY1. His notable films include ‘Dredd 3D’ and ‘Safehouse’. On moving to London he completed a 6 month run on The West End with Barbara Broccoli’s ‘Strangers on a Train’ and worked on SKY1’s medical drama: ‘Critical’. Scott has also performed in David Mamet’s Glengarry Glenross (2017) and alongside Sir Ian McKellan in the West End transfer of King Lear (2018).
Scott says, “What are the questions you need to ask as an actor and how do we implement these questions in the rehearsal room? Class is not about how talented we are but how we engage with the practical, explorative, non-judgemental, and creative elements of acting.”
