Having Cocktails with Daniel Bruhl and working with 2 Dr Who’s!
Being a creative often means you wear many hats. Seldom do we photograph headshots for performers that are just an actor or dancer. In a super competitive market, many creatives develop talents across different disciplines. It helps to stop burning out or getting bored but also helps to survive in an uncertain career. Tim Blore is certainly someone who has developed a wide range of skills. Working mainly around London he has a new play that he wrote and produced called ‘AlterNativity’ at The Hope Theatre and the Bread and Roses Theatre. We caught up with Tim after his headshots and just as the play was opening to find out a bit more about him.
What is your main talent (Sing, dance, act, comedy, etc.)?
I am an actor, musician (cellist), writer and producer.
Where did you study?
What type of role do you normally get cast for?
Romeos, psychos, Nazis, stuffy Brit and quite a bit of gay theatre. (Also all sorts of character voices, aliens and monsters on Radio!)
What do you love about performing?
It’s nice to have a day off from yourself sometimes isn’t it?
What is your first memory of being on stage and loving it?
Playing Benjamin in Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat in a school production when I realised how much I love attention.
What is your ultimate role and why?
Something fast paced, unhinged, physical and aggressive like Alex in A Clockwork Orange
What is the best bit of advice you have received as a performer?
Just say the words.
Why did you want new headshots?
My hair had grown and I’d aged horribly.
What is your greatest claim to fame?
Well I’m ecstatic to have just worked with the legendary Tom Baker and Colin Baker in recordings for Doctor Who with Big Finish. I also had a cocktail with one of my childhood heroes, German actor Daniel Brühl when filming on location in Hungary last year.
