About Johnny Temple

Johnny is an actor and comedy writer located in Cheshire. He started performing fifteen years ago when his wife surprised him with a stand-up slot at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for his fortieth birthday. Since then, he has performed stand-up regularly in Manchester and London. He trained as an actor in the northwest from 2016 to 2021 at The Actors Lab, Cartwright Drama, Manchester Actors Platform and Actors Tribe. He has also specialised in clowning and mask work with The Performers Playground.

He has appeared in several short films, commercials and TV shows, including Emmerdale (ITV), but his real love is the stage. He appeared in a full pantomime season in 2018/19 and has been in many plays, including An Inspector Calls at The Lowry, Salford, in 2020.

He has been writing regularly since 2004 when he was long-listed for a BBC writing competition. In 2017 he wrote and performed a monologue in London that was a finalist in a national competition and was subsequently published in a book. A short film that he wrote in 2019 won Best Film (People’s Choice) at MAP48.6.

He has written several short plays and, in 2022, was runner-up in a short story competition at Northwich Literature Festival.

This year he plans to expand his library of monologues and showreel scenes to provide material for actors looking for contemporary content to support their development.

About this actor headshot photography package

Johnny chose our very popular ‘ Get Aheadactor headshot photography package.  Get Ahead is all about helping an actor get ahead in the industry. Getting ahead means getting more castings, resulting in more opportunities to get work. To help an actor get ahead, we will create a great go-to or flagship headshot. This is the first headshot on Spotlight and your agent’s website. A great headshot will make a great first impression. A great headshot captures your personality, beauty, energy, and character, and your confidence radiates through it. It must represent who you are, your essence, spirit, quirks, flaws, and features. But a go-to headshot can only go so far in helping an actor get more castings. Sometimes a casting director cannot visualise an actor’s suitability for a part from their go-to headshot alone. We create another 3 contrasting headshots for the actor, intending to expand type and stretch playing age. Johnny decided to upgrade Get Ahead to include a body shot, as he is often asked for this during the panto season.
