Brandon Benoit-Joyce / British

Brandon is a British actor born, raised and based in East London’s Hackney.

The Anna Scher Theatre was responsible for his training in performance from the age of 8. His comic timing and dramatic execution can be attributed to the formative years of improvisation, workshops, castings and such at the renowned performing arts school until he left at 18. After the theatre had subsequently changed to the Young Actors Theatre Islington, Brandon would be cast in a number of short films then landing a role in ITV’s 2009 mini-series ‘Mr Eleven’, starring Michelle Ryan.

In 2010 he made his stage debut in Bola Agbaje’s ‘Off The Endz’ starring Ashley Walters, directed by Jeremy Herrin at the Royal Court Theatre.

In the same year he was then cast as Reuben in The Young Vic’s production of August Wilson’s ‘Joe Turner’s Come and Gone’, directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director, David Lan. The 1911 Pittsburgh setting required an accent of that location and period.

Brandon studied at University of Brighton studying Media where the broad scope of his course ultimately unlocked possible avenues leading him to work in development for drama and factual at numerous production companies.

Returning focus to acting he has featured in many commercials, viral campaigns, feature films,TV roles and had the opportunity to be a Stand-In and double for Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges in Fast and Furious 9 and FF10, plus Donald Glover in Atlanta Season 3 in their entirety shooting in the UK working closely with DOP’s and all members of crew through out.

Brandon enjoys skiing, golf, DJing and music production as well as a keen interest in UK underground music and dance cultures and their relationship with his Caribbean heritage and the rest of the world.
