About me

"Thomas is a determined, talented young actor. He is great to have in a company - sharing ideas and listening well and always prepared to give an idea a go. He has not only a remarkable amount of technical skills, but also a hunger to learn and get better.

His physicality is strong and his vocal skills are excellent.

He has presence in the performing space, yet is clearly able to give focus and status to other actors/characters.Thomas is also capable and resourceful when working with young people - he can lead workshops with skill, warmth and enthusiasm.

I wish him every success in his career in theatre."

Additional Information

"Casson occupies every inch of the stage and displays an astounding number of emotions throughout the performance leaving no doubt why he earned the Best Actor Award at this year’s festival" 5/5

Andrew Dickson
Reviewer, remotegoat.com

"Casson’s reflections on his time in Afghanistan and struggles with PTSD are poignantly captured in three monologues which expressed anger, regret and guilt. The skilful writing gave him a chance to shine in these sections and he certainly did. Requiring seamless alternation between anger, humour, sorrow and hope. This was a challenging role and Casson’s excellent performance and commanding stage presence suggests that he is certainly one to watch."
