About me:

Derek was nominated as Best Supporting Actor at the 2013 Filmed in Utah Awards for his portrayal of Frank Sarvis in the Amazon Prime series, 'Day Zero'; he has since reprised the role in the second series.

"Derek Lawson brought Bob Bishop (the talent scout who first spotted the teen-age Best) to life beautifully" ·

"Derek Lawson is perfect as friendly regular Brian, providing a unique insight to the madness of the bar".

"He was great!!" Yoram Productions (1st International Bank of Israel commercial)
