Ed appeared in Appropriate at the Donmar in 2019 having come to acting late and being self taught. He learnt his craft through courses at The Poor School, City Lit and Actors Centre. Regularly performing stand up comedy, and being a member of dramatic improvisation group, Three Worlds, has developed his understanding of archetypes, characterisation, and

performing on stage. Producing his own shorts has given Ed an appreciation of how the camera works, dramatic structure, and writing. His understanding of

movement has been further developed by courses in Alexander Technique, and Feldenkrais.
