Isaac’s Story

I was born in Oldham, Greater Manchester, where I remained until last year. All four of my grandparents were born in Jamaica and immigrated to the UK in the 1960s. I’m now living in Toronto to focus on my acting career, but my black British heritage is an identity which is very dear to me, and that I am utmost proud of. I hope to return here in the near future where I can contribute to the acting industry and advocate for diverse representation of our untold stories.

-Isaac, Toronto, Canada
