RhysMWatkins's picture


I'm Rhys! Originally from Bridgend County, I'm now nearing the end of my degree; BA Drama & English at Cardiff Metropolitan Uni. My time here has given me sound theoretical development, through much practical exploration, which I've enjoyed!

I've realised my passion here, for using drama to speak out on mental health; an area which has touched the lives of loved ones and myself. My current dissertation project explores this and with little over a month to submission, I look forward to presenting my observation on how we could/should aid and represent mental health, through and with drama.

Looking ahead into the very near future, I have been keen to undertake an MA in acting; partly to further my experience in academia, and partly as I am interested in this form of professional practical training to marry to the largely theoretical basis I've practiced so far. However, despite some elements of pressure, I've decided to keep open to opportunities for at least the year ahead, and find the next phase that works for me. Especially in such a field as drama, I understand that almost any experience enriches.
