Biography

Ewan was born and raised in the Scottish Highlands. He was introduced to acting in his final year of school, in a production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. This proved to be a life-changing experience for Ewan, who found such resonance in his role as an actor that this resulted in a shift of mind set and a new trajectory for his ambitions.

Ewan auditioned for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD), and although he reached the final stage of auditions, he was encouraged to gain a little more life experience first. In response to this suggestion, Ewan completed a one year course at Telford College in Edinburgh, then worked with the Scottish Youth Theatre and Mary McCluskey, touring around Scotland with a show written by Brian Cosgrove. After the tour, Ewan completed an Honours Degree whilst working to support himself in his studience.

Since then, Ewan has performed the leading role in a short film that has experienced international success, and after an intense audition season in 2017/18, gained places and scholarships to many of the UK’s top drama schools.

Ewan chose to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and is now set on achieving his unwavering ambition to become a professional and versatile Scottish actor for film, stage and television.

How the Award Helped

Ewan received a Dewar Arts Award to support him in his studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

He says;

'This award has provided me with what I have always desired: the ability to work tirelessly and completely on becoming a professional actor and the skillset that I see necessary for this. It has removed the pressures that can be added by life and, in place of them, given me freedom and space to focus all of my energy on the work. Being given this opportunity, after having to wait with burning ambitions, means so much to me that I am deeply moved whenever I spend any time thinking about it. It is both rare and wonderful and so deeply appreciated. It is actually very difficult to put into words how it feels. I just look forward to showing how I have used the resulting freedom, space and time provided by the award as it is already having such an enormous influence on the craft I am developing at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.'
