Playing Age: 38 – 45
Neill Fleming has been acting since childhood, one both sides of the Atlantic. He spent much of his younger life in transit between Dublin, Maine, Massachusetts, Donegal and New York City. This has given him a very keen ear for accents and a chameleon-like ability for character acting. He has trained extensively in voice and his first love, Shakespeare. He has also done musical theatre, worked on a rake of films and has a very strong flair for comedy.
He is a founder member of The Corps Ensemble, which has had great success in its first 2 years, in which he played Rory in ‘Close to the Sun’ in Dublin Fringe ’17
