Project Description


Reyn Shields has an immense interest in the arts and practices it, in all forms, at every possible opportunity. With his exposure to the industry, both locally   and abroad, his quality of work has a diverse range.

He studied Drama while in London at Sylvia Young, where he experienced the thrill of working with local British actors in theatre productions. He furthered his knowledge with Clive van der Wagen at his In Front Of Camera Acting Classes and then received his honours in Media and Communication at the University of Stellenbosch under the mentorship of South African acting veteran, Elsabé Daneel.

Working on international productions such as the feature film The Journey is the Destination (directed by Bronwen Hughes), has broadened his horizons and instilled a craving to keep expanding and improving his quality of work.

His commitment to his roles has kept him working on skills such as accents, sport and cultural immersion and traveling the world has played a major role in helping to hone these skills.

His curiosity in humanity keeps his love for the craft alive and continues to help him develop more authentic characters.
