Actor

I trained as an actor for 5 years, graduating from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in BA Acting –  Collaborative Devised Theatre. The course is in creative partnership with the international touring theatre company Complicite.

Since graduating I have acted in several productions, including Channel 4 Humans, Amazon Prime series Silent Eye, feature film Your Eyes on Me, SwipeRight and a commercial for a major new video game. Stage includes; The Caucasian Chalk Circle at the Greenwich Theatre and Fool for Love by Sam Shepard at the Courtyard Theatre.

Director and Intimacy Coordinator

My work as a Director and Collaborator has previously been nominated for the NSDF Award and the MTN Awards. I have become heavily involved in directing numerous theatre productions. Film includes; Director/Assistant Director and Producer on Amazon Prime series Silent Eye.

I have worked as an Intimacy Coordinator for Netflix, Warner Bros, HBO, SKY, Channel 4, BBC and Amazon Prime.

Given that I have the training as an actor, I believe that it gives me a good grounding and understanding of the actor’s process within the rehearsal space – something which is incredibly beneficial.

“David Thackeray brought together a beautiful combination of music, movement and puppetry, capturing the essence of childhood imagination.
