Biography

‘I adored my time at BOVTS, made lifelong friendships and, more than anything, came away with a work ethic and a willingness to knuckle down. Classes in the sunshine on the Downs! Heaven.’

Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman CBE graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 1999. She’s known for her roles in The Favourite, The Crown, Fleabag and Peep Show.

The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
