Jeremiah is a professional child actor and a former child model who started working in the industry modelling and featuring in television commercials and idents from the age of 4 years old. From a young age, Jeremiah has been confident and has always enjoyed learning through imaginative role play and song. Through this, he started training part time in the areas of acting singing and dancing at the Sylvia Young Theatre School where he now trains full-time and also receives 1:1 acting coaching with DMA (Dominique Moore Arts). He is a DMA scholar and is also a part of the DMA Elite group where he develops the skills that are required for various acting roles.
He secured his first television screen role in Storm City 3D for National Geographic U.S. and Sky Atlantic HD in 2012 playing RJ followed by Elijah in Top Boy 2, a UK drama series for Channel 4 in 2013 and a short film Swallows in 2014.
He has since been very fortunate to secure professional roles in West End musical theatre productions with his first show playing Young Simba in the Lion King Zebra tour where he rehearsed in Manchester for just under two months and then went on to perform in Basel, Switzerland for seven months at the tender age of eight years old. Jeremiah performed the role of Young Lola in Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre for two contracts (August 2016 - July 2017); the role of Mason in School of Rock the Musical at the Gillian Lynne Theatre formally New London Theatre (January 2018 – September 2018); Caroline, Or Change at The Playhouse Theatre playing the role of Jackie for which he received a Mousetrap Award nomination for in the Big Little Stars category and has just finished playing the role of Nigel in The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole 13 13¾ - The Musical at the Ambassadors Theatre in September of this year which he received some wonderful reviews for: https://youtu.be/C5aTsggkXzo

I can see that Jeremiah equally loves the screen side of performing. He has also featured in two other short films short films Mockingbird in 2016 playing one of the leads, Adam and most recently the lead role of Lamar in his third short film, Dark Red (September 2018), which is a very moving piece in aid of blood cancer awareness (https://vimeo.com/326809668).
Jeremiah is now working on voicing a character for an animation series which is set to be very popular for children’s TV. This is a very different to what he is used to doing but he is really enjoying it and is proving to be another string to his bow.
He works so hard I am very proud of him and hope his hard work and dedication helps him to excels in the industry as he gets older.
