Kingdom was founded in 2012 by award-winning producer, Najan Ward, in response to the need to create a school that provides high-level training to actors who may be 'overlooked' elsewhere.
Our vision is to provide outstanding contemporary training to actors who would not normally follow the three-year drama school route. To cultivate a network of exceptional talent from beginners and professionals alike and to hone students' skills in order to best equip them for successful careers in the industry.
In 2017, multi-award-winning actor, Ashley Walters, joined the Kingdom family as joint co-founder. Outside of a hectic filming schedule, Ashley often administers monthly auditions and monologue jams at the school as well as Top Boy masterclasses for our returning students.
