About H.Cherdon

As well as performing in more than 40 live theatre shows, 2 performing tour troups and 1 improv group, I have also acted in television and independent film projects.

The first time I fancied acting I sat watching my mother apply makeup before a performance at the local theatre. My mother’s love of theatre and independent film no doubt influenced me.

A few months later, I started acting classes and continued studying performance throughout my childhood. I trained in a variety of methods and techniques including stage and film acting, character acting, acting history, improvisation, pantomime, Shakespeare, vaudeville, on-camera personality/spokesperson, and voice acting. I also took tons of dance and movement classes, tap, ballet, jazz, modern dance, and musical theatre.
