He has just returned from filming in India,portraying the role of the British Commissioner in the historic Bollywood epic RAQS:due for release January 2015.
Working with Carl was a special experience. Firstly he reinforced my belief in the character he was playing to the extent,that one could go that extra mile shaping and embellishing his qualities. While he could do that,one could not take him for granted or underestimate his presence particularly when one was tuned to receiving spectacular performance. Carl came with a regimen that creates perfection on sets. Muzaffar Ali: Award winning Director: RAQS.
Any other information
Carl has worked in theatre and Tv for over 26 years.
He is a very dramatic character performer yet can still retain natural humble qualities when working in any Genre.
He is an excellent physical performer with a background in dance and fitness which bring an energy to all his characters.

RAQS:THE DANCE.
Portraying Sir Henry Cavendish, Chief Commissioner of Oudh in the historic Bollywood epic about the rebellion against the Victorian rule.

RAQS: THE DANCE.

It is with pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Carl Wharton, who I cast to play the role of “Cavendish” in the forthcoming period feature film “Raqs”, filmed in India and directed by Muzaffar Ali.

As the casting agent for the British cast of the film, I can state that Carl showed his professionalism and determination from the outset. Carl took the time to understand the role and used his skills to immerse himself into the character. His creativity shone in his performance as the role of a British Army Officer in 19th century pre-independent India.
During the production, his commendable nature showed, along with the ability to discuss, share and listen to ideas and suggestions amongst co-actors and crew, as well as quickly adapting to production changes (and the 45C heat during filming).

Co-acting alongside Carl in the film, playing the role of “Kitty”, I found Carl to be very productive, with a great sense of approach and focus, delivering his role with great enthusiasm, and I look forward to co-acting with him in the future, as well as definitely casting him for relevant future roles.

" Carl Wharton, an absolutely amazing actor to work with. Very few people have passion for what they do and I can say with confidence, Carl has an impressive amount of passion. Not only is he able to adapt to any type of role, he becomes that person and you fully believe that the character has jumped from the page to on the screen. Carl likes to collaborate with anyone he works with making him an instant team player, he takes his time to perfect what he is doing ultimately giving the best results, what more could you ask for ? Working with Carl has been an absolute pleasure and I can say this wont be the only time that I will work with him, we have many things planned "

Project Aella.
Carl Wharton: Agent ******** needs no introduction. This is the man who makes a pistol beg for mercy. Exceptional, A**, Brilliant, Sublime, Fantastic, Marvelous work. What I saw at the shoot was a natural performer. You defined your character beyond my comprehension, and gave substance to the scenarios being depicted at the shoot. Your facial expressions, prop handling were absolutely brilliant. I am happy to have chosen you, and it is certainly one of the best decisions I have made for the project. Brilliant work!

"Running the Actors Toolbox workshops gives me the opportunity to see actors doing what they enjoy, acting. The toolbox schedule is the same for each workshop, yet they are always totally different, simply because the talent, enthusiasm and level of skill dictates the pace of the course. When you get serious minded, talented committed individuals, the course becomes a complet joy. Carl Wharton was exactly this type of actor. His passion for his craft was obvious, his enthusiasm to try things was immense and he responded perfectly to trying things new and took both direction and criticism in his stride. For any would-be director or casting agent, Carl represents no risk whatsoever, as he is the ultimate professional"
Si Wall. Actors Toolbox Workshop
October 2012.

Carl is genuinely one of the nicest and most gifted people I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
With Carl's superb intuitive and technical understanding of the acting craft, it became clear at the very start of our working relationship that Carl would take any form of direction confidently, instinctively and passionately. He would always deliver with immense skill and care and his level of focus, conviction and determination was simply outstanding, which as a director, provided me with the absolute trust in his work and the choices he made.
It was incredibly easy to develop an organic relationship with Carl who posses an exciting creative and playful energy, particularly when working within improvisation, that oozes believability on screen.
Carl demonstrated a sensitive commitment to a variety of challenging topics in the feature film Self Same Sky. With terminal cancer being at the heart of this film, Carl would humbly accept all resources offered to him (such as speaking with Cancer Research UK), in order to bring true to life qualities to his work whilst being respectful also. Additionally Carl was committed to private research that brought extraordinary detail to his performance as a result, executed with sincere subtlety.
Carl is a profound actor, with a generous casting range, who will be adored by his fellow cast and crew - I highly recommend Carl with no hesitation whatsoever.

"Working with Carl is so easy you could not believe it... He is such a professional on set and a great person outside. He always give the 100% on everything he does and from the very beginning I knew he was the right choice for playing General Carter. He is a very talented actor and a good friend... We had great time together during the shooting of ZM !"
Director: Marco Ristori.

Carl was a great pleasure to work with. Not only is he a very talented actor but also a very warm, friendly individual. He was always very punctual and took direction very well whilst working with our crew to achieve the best possible performance in a scene. I would love to work with him again in the future.

Review of A Warning Against Idle Gossip
"Beautiful, strong, striking, must see"
by Maggie Collins for remotegoat on 30/06/11

2Share

Keeping your head down after almost being burned for being a heretic should be an easy task or so you'd think! Not for Thomas Wollerton.

Trickster Theatre's newest offering "A Warning Against Idle Gossip" is a story about one man's struggle with living within his beliefs, staying alive and keeping his loved ones alive.

The play, written by Michael Crowley, is set in a church in England 1556. Right from the very start the ambience of Studio Liverpool, with its bare wooden floors and rafters, makes us feel like we are right there in the church. The smell of incense and Father Bampton dishing out communion as we are waiting certainly sets the mood.

The set is very simple with the action taking place all around us, almost making us feel as if we are spying on the story as it unfolds.

Directed by Ron Meadows, this is a beautifully told tale of family loyalty, personal faith and morality.

Although the story itself is not particularly new, the way that Crowley has written the play made me care about the characters. Wollerton (Carl Wharton) is pulled from his rock of faith between many hard places; wife Anne (Bronwyn Ebdon), son Robert (David Alnwick) and Bampton (Cellan Scott). This is all compounded when he has to look over Wallop (David Collins), a murderous vagabond. Wallop is the perfect vehicle for Crowley to explain the story through. In explaining the political / religious happenings of the times to Wallop, the audience is always kept in the loop.

All of this, put together with strong acting throughout, striking lighting which gives the impression of a Caravaggio painting (one of the scenes is done completely in candle light) and sound direction, A Warning Against Idle Gossip is a great way to spend ones evening!

Review: A Warning Against Idle Gossip, Studio Liverpool

Idle_gossip

You never quite know what you're going to get when you step inside Elevator Studios and take the lift up to the fifth floor, but time and again Studio Liverpool has proved it is well worth taking a chance. Last time its in-house theatre company Trickster took over it was for a memorable Macbeth earlier in the year; this time they are presenting something a bit riskier, premiering a gothic morality play -- of sorts...

A Warning Against Idle Gossip is set in the Middle Ages as the plague sweeps a fearful English village. As "the sickness" takes hold, two sides of spirituality are also at war as a schism threatens to tear apart the Church. A new play by Studio Liverpool's writer-in-residence Michael Crowley, the first thing that hits you is the immediate clarity both of the script and performance. A simple altar transforms the bare room into a church, and it is not difficult for the audience to let imagination do the rest.

Once again Cellan Scott, a good, solid Macbeth earlier in the year, stands out in a role he plays to menacing, commanding perfection. As Sir Christopher Bampton, he is the man of the Church with a sinister dedication to Catholicism. Carl Wharton (pictured above) plays the more reasoned and doubtful deacon Thomas Wollerton, who has not exactly been living the most traditional of lives and whose Evangelical beliefs and dreams of a Church of England could seal his fate.

Throw in a desperate wife (Bronwyn Ebdon), a headstrong long lost son (David Alnwick) and a mysterious vagabond known only as Wallop (David Collins), and a war of worlds and wills threatens to tear everyone apart.

Collins provides some comic relief as the wanderer seeking sanctuary in the church and Alnwick, who can be usually seen on the variety circuit doing his comedy magic act with broad Newcastle accent showed some considerable depth as the principled, rebellious son. Ronald Meadows's direction is tight and the soundtrack, by Katie Chatburn, sets the tone perfectly.

Once again, Trickster Theatre prove that you don't need much to create an evocative and effective production and A Warning Against Idle Gossip is a gripping story, convincingly told. If you've never been, then go; Studio Liverpool is quietly producing some seriously good fringe theatre. If you're suffering Everyman Macbeth withdrawal (as I am), then this could be the show to take the pain away.

Studio Liverpool is on Upper Parliament Street, opposite Cain's Brewery. A Warning Against Idle Gossip runs until Saturday (July 2). For tickets and information visit their site here.
