Photos with Marcus Griffiths
Marcus was born and raised in South East London. At an early age he showed signs of being interested in the performing arts. As a young boy he was borderline obsessed with Michael Jackson and would wear his living room carpet thin practicing the artist's signature moves. At 7 he attended the well-regarded independent boy's school Dulwich College (founded by the actor Edward Alleyn, a successful Elizabethan actor as well as a contemporary and friend of William Shakespeare)and stayed until he graduated at 18.

Planning to train as an actor after obtaining a degree he enrolled at Royal Holloway University but after 6 months was craving to act and so left to audition for drama school, attending the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama at 19 which he graduated from with a BA in Acting in 2011. He in fact left drama school early to begin his first job at the Shakespeare's Globe theater in Much Ado about Nothing playing Conrad, the devious right hand man of Don John and has been fortunate to continue working in various mediums that encompass the craft of acting.
