Michael Knighton

Michael Knighton

Hailing from Sheffield and of Irish descent, Mickey came to acting later in life. He has a BA in film and sociology and has been fascinated and entertained by the craft of acting since youth. A former career in the restaurant industry as well as stints living in London, Spain, Newcastle and Brighton mean he brings a varied life experience to his character research, rehearsal and performance which he approaches with energy and empathy. Darkly comic, dry, witty comedy are his driving characteristics however via his training he's also found himself at home playing strong characters in contemporary drama as well as relishing the challenge of classical or historical text.
