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 culture at BOVTS is encouraging, respectful, welcoming and empowering; the environment and buildings are beautiful and I found Bristol to be one of the most wonderful cities in which to spend summer! Lindy Yeates, Foundation Course Student
