ROSIE CLOSS Bristol-based actor Rosie joined Scriptwriters & Co in the summer of 2020, and immediately established a reputation for delivering outstanding performances. Most of her acting has been on stage, including a 2019 tour of the South West of the UK in The Ebbing Hour by David Martin, and in 2018 she appeared at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory as the eponymous lead in Anne Boleyn by Howard Brenton. She recently completed a year of training with the Bristol Acting Academy, and is looking forward to gaining more film experience when COVID-19 allows it. In her spare time she commissions drug and alcohol treatment, and loves strength training, films and reading.
MATT NATION, actor and director, helped run Bath University Student Theatre whilst studying for a biology degree, and found it far more enjoyable than science. Several Edinburgh Fringe shows later he was, said the Evening News, 'Destined to go far'. Since then, he's gone to Bath. Concentrating on community theatre and film, Matt took his production of Romeo and Juliet to Dubai, narrowly avoiding an arrest for lewd behaviour in public, which fits the play's theme. He's played Hamlet twice (got the hang of it second time) and is a trustee of the Rondo Theatre. A career highlight was being the Face of Wales in an EU-sponsored series of ads. Matt revelled in filming before the project was quietly shelved. The rumour that his face was partly to blames still haunts him. He's overjoyed (his words, not ours!) to be flexing his theatrical muscles for S&Co.
LAURA CORRADI graduated from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and has gained an MA in Musical Theatre from LJMU; The Lynda La Plante Prize Fund for Outstanding Practice; a GoGlobal Scholarship; a GSMD ELQ Scholarship; and a PG Cert in Performance Teaching!

AL BRUNKER is a versatile actor and writer from Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, and a huge asset to the company. He nearly trained at the Guildford School of Acting... but didn't. Instead, he became a lawyer, though still managed to pursue his love of acting, and has regularly performed in community theatre productions over the last twenty years. He's also written a number of stage and radio plays, and we were delighted that two of his screenplays were chosen as S&Co Scratch Night winners.
LILY MARYON is an award-winning actor/writer from Bristol, UK, and a graduate of Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance. She was voted Best Actress at several film festivals for her portrayal of Hannah More in a feature of the same name. Other film credits include Is that all there is?

MICHAEL BRAND has a BA in Acting Studies from the Arden School of Theatre. A trained scriptwriter, director and actor, he jumped into movies! With a grant from The Princes Trust, he set up a film company, wrote and directed his first feature, Darkly Tripped, and has never looked back. Moving between roles and film companies, Mike has had two pieces performed at S&Co Scratch Nights, and has written short films and features. His latest, The List, was shot entirely by him. In addition, he's penned and directed stage plays, worked in radio, tried motion capture performance training and videogame voiceover work, written books (under a pseudonym) and won awards at a festival or two! Michael says he's ecstatic to be a part of the S&Co team, as he loves the passion and togetherness that has made him feel so at home here. Aaaw.

ALEX STABLER A writer, spoken word poet and actor, Alex revels in experimenting and trying new things, always aiming to showcase important issues, and represent those who are often unseen in media throughout their work. They graduated from Bath Spa University in 2019 with a BA in Creative Writing and then completed an MA in Scriptwriting. As both a writer and actor, Alex very much enjoys the chance to read and perform new work for Scriptwriters & Co, seeing it as an opportunity to hone acting skills, stop procrastinating... and get on with their own scriptwriting!

RHIANNON SKERRITT is a highly skilled performer who graduated from East 15 Acting School. She's utilised her physical strengths in roller skating, wire work, gymnastics and sword fighting to secure roles on stage and screen, so acting for Scriptwriters & Co is a walk in the park.

In May 2020, Rhiannon acted in a professional, recorded table read of Suzanna Cardash's screenplay, Voyeuse, as part of the London Screenwriters' Festival.

No role's too big or too small in her eyes, as long as she can bring an authentic performance to the audience.
HOLLY BODIMEADE began her career as a child actress at the Theatre Royal Bath, in BBC Radio 4 Plays and playing leads in two dramas for CBBC. She went on to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe with Fourth Monkey Actor Training Company, and has appeared in programmes such as Casualty, Father Brown and most recently scampering around the woods playing a fawn in Cursed for Netflix!

PHILIP SHERLOCK is an actor and writer. He works mostly in radio, where his roles have ranged from Scrooge's nephew Fred in A Christmas Carol to Mr Tumnus (a faun), in The Lion, The Witch And The Wardobe. Over the years, Philip's relished the extraordinary privilege of working with Hayley Atwell, David Oyelowo, Jenny Agutter, Geoffrey Palmer, Dame Joan Plowright, Brian Blessed, Wendy Craig and Sir David Suchet (and no, we're not making this up)! He was born in the USA because he wanted to be near his mother at the time, but has lived and worked in England for most of his life.

Rhys is passionate about musical theatre, and he's played Patsy in the UK & International Tour of Spamalot; Tom Collins in Rent at The Old Rep in Birmingham; and Pop in We Will Rock You. Frustratingly, his West End debut in Only Fools and Horses: The Musical was scheduled for March 2020. Bad timing!
