Paterson Joseph, co-star of Danny Boyle’s hit film, ‘The Beach’, recently took on the daunting task of directing amateur actors from a poor estate in North-West London towards a professional production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. The project was filmed as part of Channel 4’s ‘My Shakespeare’ (screened over Christmas). Alongside Baz Luhrman, Paterson was able to discuss the challenges and rewards involved in re-interpreting Shakespeare. The final piece was performed at RADA.

Paterson trained at the London Academy of Music and Drama. He is best known for his role in "Casualty” and for appearing alongside Leonardo diCaprio in ‘The Beach’. Joseph’s film credits include Jim Sheridan’s "In the Name of the Father" and Joel Hershman’s "Green Fingers." On stage Joseph has appeared in "Henry IV" Part I and II with the English Touring Co., as Horatio in Jonathan Kent’s "Hamlet" at the Almeida Theatre and in Gregory Hersov’s "Blues for Mr. Charlie”. Joseph was winner of the Best Actor for London Fringe for his performance as Leon in "Raping the Gold" at the Bush Theatre.

The event will be informally led by Questions and Answer with the audience and will be accompanied by a drinks reception.
