Biography

Alexander Uzoka is an Italian Nigerian actor from East London on the BA Acting course at BOVTS. Alexander has been a part of his local theatre ‘Theatre Royal Stratford East’ community from a young age where he took part in various performance opportunities (NT Connections, Monologue Slam). Since then he has joined with the ‘Yard Theatre’, the ‘Almeida Theatre’, and now that of the BOVTS community. Here, Alexander has been a part of many productions such as “Macbeth” in which he played ‘Rosse’, “Absolute Scenes” where he played ‘Vale of Def’ and most recently, his title role, ‘El-Fayoumy’ in ‘The Last Days of Judas Iscariot’.

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
