Hi I'm Ewan and I am an experienced actor in the Chicago market but can also be a local hire in LA and NYC. I typically am cast to play 13-15 year olds and I work in film, TV and stage. My bucket list includes working on a epic historical-time period film, working as a kid actor on an adult comedy film of Adam Sandler's (dream big, right?) and challenging roles that pull me out of my comfort zone.
My personality is calm and relaxed on set and I am always very prepared for work. I take the business of acting very serious and I am always in one or more classes studying something related to the acting world. The summer of 2016, I auditioned for a youth ensemble at the prestigious Goodman Theatre in Chicago and was accepted into both programs (musical and non musical theatre ensemble). I chose the non-musical theatre ensemble called "Playbuild" and I trained for 8 weeks, culminating in a show we created. It was an awesome experience!
I also completed a film called "The Journal". It was difficult to find sleeping hours between the Goodman Theatre and filming as a lead in this film. I was a walking zombie for about two weeks... I had a great time on set - a majority of the actors were my age to about 24 years old and we got into a lot of mischief on and off set. Because of my networking with Chicago actors, I assisted the casting director in finding niche actors to fill a few roles. It was an eye opening experience to see the video auditions sent in by actors and I am looking forward to working in casting again in future projects - helping to use my network of contacts!
Straight after filming "The Journal", I got the news that I booked a lead role in a production of Billy Elliot. I auditioned for the role of Michael (Billy's best friend who loves wearing women's clothing...) because he is a HUGE character. He tap dances (I tap dance) and his personality is like nothing I ever played before. I have had a lot of contact from actors who played Billy and Michael in shows all around the world on Instagram and found the huge fan following humbling and awesome. You can see me on Instagram at EwanDoesActing.
2017 brought changes to the types of work I am auditioning for. I booked a few Commercials this year and my first voice over job. I was also brought out to LA for a producers session for a pilot TV show and booked it! The project is still being worked through but now the pilot is anticipated to go to series. Currently the title is called The Prophet. I am also currently writing two scripts that I would like to make into short films this year. I also submitted a scene to be staged in my school's Black Box Theatre-Spring Show.
If you are looking to cast something and are seeking someone in my age range and type please don't hesitate to contact me. And if you know Adam Sandler please put in a good word for me for his next film!!! :)
Unique traits: I have citizenship in USA and England (EU). I look VERY British! I am very thin and can still look 12 years old on my face or 15 years old depending on my hair/clothing and my energy level. I recently dyed my hair very dark-nearly black and it really is cool!
