And now, may the Proper Villains present the man our play is named for: General, Politician, Consul, Leader, Dictator – our Gaius Julius Caesar, the exceptional Christian Grant.
Christian started acting at the age of thirteen, after being forced to audition and “give it a go” by his mother.
During high school he appeared as Joe Byrne in Ned Kelly, Percy in Henry IV Part I and Ulysses in Troilus & Cressida. At the age of sixteen, Christian was asked to be a part of the Globe Shakespeare Company of Australia’s National Youth Production of Cymbeline, in which he played Belarius.
After graduating from high school Christian joined the youth theatre company Rough Hewn Theatre Troupe, where he appeared as Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Theseus in Jean Racine’s Phèdre, Peter Webster in A Spring Song and Macbeth in Macbeth.
Graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2012, his roles while studying included Vershinnin in Three Sisters, Baylor in A Lie of the Mind, Matthew in Daniel Keene’s Untitled Monologue, and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice.
Later this year, Christian will appear as the younger version of Duncan Ballins in the Rowan Woods directed ABC Telemovie The Broken Shore.
But before this, he has to die.
