Over the last year, Darren has appeared in the new Finnish drama series, Koukussa 2 (Moskito Television), as well as in four episodes of the comedy TV show, Modernit Miehet (Yle Areena) and in the feature Film Valmentaja (Optipari). Currently residing in Finland, Darren has appeared as a voice-over artist for YLE television channel, Genelec speakers, Fazer chocolate, Nokia and Battery Energy Drink. He was also a contestant on the 2018 series, The Voice Of Finland.
In 2017, Darren was working back in London where he performed in the revival of Jonathan Kent's production of Manon Lescaut at the Royal Opera House.
He then went on to portray a 1920's New York gangster at The Hope Theatre in Islington in a new piece of writing called Strange The Road written and directed by Lil Warren. Darren was then cast in the film adaption of the same story, produced by Meddle Films and directed by James Warren, set for release in 2020.
Darren came to the stage as a working musician and he originally began acting lessons to help with stage performance. He found a new talent in acting, but he quickly realised that learning the craft involved a great deal more than he anticipated. If he was going to utilise this craft properly, he would need to spend more time studying.
Darren trained at East 15 Acting School and has now been working as a professional actor for almost ten years. Notable performances include:
"OUTSTANDING" - Bob Gale, Producer 'Back to the Future'
"VERY GOOD" - Adele Jennings, Daily Mirror
"NEGOTIATES THE TENDERNESS AND FEARS OF HIS CHARACTER PERFECTLY" - Paul Vale, The Stage
