Jason Brasier


Jason BrasierJason is fresh out of university (Leeds), graduating in July with a BA in English. Since his early teens he has been involved with youth and fringe theatre, as well as working professionally on screen. He had guest appearances in ‘Casualty’ and ‘Doctors’ (both BBC), and ‘Little Crackers’ (Sky).

He won an award for best male actor at the Alcalá de Henares Short Film Festival in 2013. Shows he was in at uni included Waiting at the Bus Stop, A Clockwork Orange, The Great Gatsby, Posh and Jerusalem – as well as a comedy double-act with Jack. In his final year he directed an adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting.
