About Clayton

Described as "Australia's emerging acting talent" by Filmink Magazine, Clay's accrued an impressive resume of work across Theater, Film and Television for well over 100 productions. He garnered unanimous praise among critics for his portrayal of 'Steve' in Devil May Care's production of Songs of Grace and Redemption and then again for his role as 'A' with Montague Basement's production of Sarah Kane's Crave for the 2010 and 2016 Sydney Fringe Festivals respectively. Having trained alongside the finest acting coaches, directors and casting directors working in the industry today - both in Australia and overseas - some of Clay's tutors include Jessica Hobbs, David Caesar, Miranda Harcourt, Tamara Hunter CSA, Natela Dzuliaschvili and Peter Andrikidis. He's appeared regularly in a number of roles for a wide array of popular Australian tele-dramas such as Rescue: Special Ops, Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities, Second Skin and All Saints. Clay has also performed in many hit plays across Sydney such as Your Heart is My Piñata (Factotum Theatre, 2011), MATE (Downstairs Belvoir, 2009), The Subtle Art of Flirting (Tunks Productions, 2005) and Pick-ups (Tamarama Rock Surfers, 2003) - just to mention a handful.

Since early 2000, Clay has been a proud sponsor of Childfund Australia. He is a Founding Supporter of The Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures located in Los Angeles, CA, and is also a patron and an ongoing supporter of the Sydney Film Festival. He contributed towards the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for "Operation: Zero Tolerance" in 2012 and was a spokesperson in a national TVC campaign with Variety, the Children's Charity, which helped raise $10,000 for the organisation via proceeds from the cinema ticket sales of Dealing with Destiny in August, 2011.

On the job, Clay consistently maintains his reputation for being affable, a team player and of always pulling his own weight - from initial casting through to the final production day. The roles he tends to play are characters possessed of both strength and vulnerability, often with a pale, piercing gaze and a focused yet latent magnetism. As an actor, his strength lies in his ability to exert subtlety of emotion, inner conflict and shifts in thought during the silence between the fanfare of moments. Outside of work, he is a fellow of many individual skills, experiences and talents, too numerous to list here. Suffice to say he thoroughly enjoys the company and collaborative exchange between like-minded creatives and is motivated by nothing more than to serve the character within the greater narrative of the script, to be challenged within his roles and to constantly push himself to be the best.
