Sam Newton
Sam is a young actor who is hellbent on helping to tell inspiring or uplifting stories in exhilarating ways, be that on stage, screen, radio, or via any other medium.

A recent University of Leeds graduate with a first class BA (Hons) in Theatre and Performance, over the past three years I have performed in, devised, directed and produced various theatre, sketch comedy, physical and musical theatre projects, which include performing at the Edinburgh Fringe and at NSDF. I also co-founded BackBreak Theatre, and we have experimented with new writing, Shakespeare adaptation and collaboratively devised work.

Having grown up with a love for all things film and TV, I recently completed various TV and short film projects, and I am currently developing my own short film after shooting the first half on location in China.

I’m always looking to get involved in projects that challenge me, and this adventurous nature has led me to performing devised physical theatre at the Gasteig, Munich and even to studying Chinese Opera in Shanghai. But please don’t ask me to speak any Mandarin.
