BA (Hons) Professional Acting Student


Yazmin Kayani is a Mixed-race Pakistani Actor from Manchester who is graduating from the BA (Hons) Professional Acting course. Yazmin is a strong physical actor who was in The Royal Air Force for five years. 

Their most recent credits include; Mother Teresa in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot at The Station, Lady Capulet in Romeo & Juliet at The Redgrave Theatre, Hybound Mic in Absolute Scenes at The Marble Factory, and Rachel in Toy Plastic Chicken at The Wardrobe Theatre.

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.
