Miner 6/Posh Dad/Scab/Policeman/Drunk Husband - Ensemble

Billy Elliot the Musical is Damien’s fifth appearance for
Auckland Theatre Company’s main bill. Earlier this year he was many, many different accented characters in The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. Unfortunately, he wasn’t allowed to make any of
those accents Geordie for the extra practice. You might also have seen him last year as Young Rupert in Rupert and Theo Helmer in Emily Perkins’ adaptation of A Doll’s
House. Damien’s other recent theatre credits include H.M.S. Pinafore, South Pacific, Loving Kurt Vonnegut, One Man Two Guvnors, Wild Bees, A Midsummer Night’s
Dream, The Slapdash Assassin, The Mikado, Postal and In The Next Room (Or The Vibrator Play). His recent television credits include Hillary, Field Punishment No.1,
Siege, Underbelly NZ and the upcoming Bombshell. Damien is thrilled to be involved with the opening show of this amazing new theatre! Damien is a proud member
of New Zealand Actors Equity.
