Mark Coleman rebooted!

Never Give Up!

Following ten years as a professional actor (1985-95) Mark embarked on a second career as a full-time drama teacher based in Glasgow.

But he never gave up on performing.

Instead, over the next quarter of a century, Mark dedicated himself to honing his artistry in the evenings and at weekends in the world of amateur theatre, and in that time played a huge diversity of roles ranging from King Lear, Willy Loman and George in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to richly comic parts such as Toby Belch in Twelfth Night and Spooner in Pinter's No Man's Land, to name just a few.

In addition to acting and directing, Mark refined his craft through workshops with practitioners like Warren Robertson, Bernard Hiller, Bella Merlin, Phelim MDermott and Nadine George; and enjoyed courses in Meisner, Hagen, Chekhov and Demidov acting techniques.

And in 2009 Mark took a 12-month sabbatical from teaching and was accepted into the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama for a Masters in acting, graduating with Merit the following year. 

Having now fully retired from the world of teaching, Mark is now delighted to announce the relaunch of his professional acting career at this year's Edinburgh Fringe (2022) playing the title role in Red Rover Theatre's production of Visiting Cézanne

FEB 2023  The Acting Habit: 21-day self tape challenge, was led by casting director Manuel Puro. Here's my tape selection from the course. We had just 24hrs to learn our script, shoot, edit and then upload each scene. Such a great experience!
