Thornhill recently welcomed back one of our past pupils, Beruce Khan who has found success as an actor. During his time with us, Beruce participated in many of our school productions and, after leaving, he pursued his dream of performing on stage when he attended RADA (Royal Association for the Dramatic Arts).
Beruce spent time with some of our year 7 and 9 pupils as well as some of our up-and-coming stars who frequently feature in our annual shows and would like to follow in Beruce’s footsteps. Pupils received tips on how to be successful in the industry and heard some stories about the challenges Beruce has had to face on his journey to success- including the time he met Tom Cruise and forgot how to speak!
Beruce is currently part of the cast which has been performing Shakespeare’s Hamlet at the Globe Theatre in London. They have recently taken their show on the road and, by the time the tour is completed, will have performed in 205 countries across the world! We have been very fortunate to meet and talk to a true inspiration who has shown us that “normal” people really can achieve their dreams if they work hard enough.
