Will Tudor – Bio
William James Sibree Tudor was born on the 11th of April 1987 in London, England. He grew up near Stratford-Upon-Avon which was where he completed his elementary and secondary education. For college, Will Tudor attended Leicester University. He studied English Literature and graduated in 2008.
Unlike many other actors who fall in love with their craft at an early age; Tudor only realized that he wanted to be an actor when he was 16. He had auditioned for a stage play known as Faustus and got the lead role of Dr Faustus. The role was a very challenging one and Tudor had to memorise numerous lines. He, however, enjoyed the whole experience and decided to pursue a career in that direction. While in the university, Will Tudor was an active member of the drama society and took part in several plays. After college, he attended The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where he further honed his skills. He participated in many theatrical productions while in drama school and graduated with an acting degree in 2011.
Movies And TV Shows
Will Tudor commenced his career in 2011 with a minor role in the TV series, Great Expectations. The series is based on a Charles Dickens novel of the same name. Since that humble debut, Tudor has featured in other series such as In the Club, The Red Tent, Mr Selfridge, Shadowhunters, Game of Thrones and Humans. The latter is a British sci-fi series which explores the impact of robots and artificial intelligence on human lives. In the series, human beings are able to purchase robotic servants who look just like humans. Tudor plays the role of one of such robots known as ODI.
