More from Daniel Mays:
I feel incredibly blessed to have been given the opportunity to train at RADA.
My experience there was an unforgettable one; a creative journey of self-discovery, hard work, honing my talent, opening up horizons and sharing my life with some of the most inspiring and dedicated teachers and students.
Of course, I was aware of RADA’s history. Its reputation and standing within the industry speaks for itself. It was a journey into the unknown for a working class boy from Essex. I need not have been intimidated. RADA matched my drive and ambition every step of the way. From day one it was always nurturing and totally supportive. A space to succeed, fail and continue to grow. At the end of my training, I felt totally equipped and ready to enter the profession. They gave me a bag of tools to hit the ground running and I haven’t looked back. I shall be forever indebted to everyone there for their invaluable expertise and guidance.
All donations gifted to RADA via The Big Give Christmas Challenge between 29 November – 2 December 2016 will be doubled by pledges made from a few generous individuals as well as the Childhood Trust and will help RADA create opportunities for young people.
The money raised for RADA from The Big Give Christmas Challenge will support activities such as free workshops and performances for eligible schools in the UK, inclusive workshops for young people with physical and sensory disabilities and programmes to open up technical theatre training for young people.
