Recent RSC season & film 'The Current War'. Just filmed 'Surge'. Currently starring in 'Shook' (nominated for Best Ensemble Offie) at Southwark Playhouse & tour: "In a fantastic cast, Finan stands out, veering between bravado and naivete" Evening Standard, “... Each performance is convincing and endearing, particularly Finan’s manic Liverpudlian, who hides his pain behind hyperactive verbal barrages and jokes about his self-harm scars” The Guardian, "Josh Finan is mesmerising, a human thunderbolt literally bouncing off the dingy prison walls" Weekender
