About me
Richard Banks is an award winning actor, writer and director. He has extensive theatre credits performing and directing everything from Shakespeare and Jacobean drama, through to pantomime and modern drama; his diverse roles range from Macbeth and Spurio through to Pantomime Dame. He has also had roles 'Eastenders' and 'Skyfall' - the new Bond movie.
He is also an experienced Teacher and Youth Theatre Leader, and is fanatical about getting youth involved in the Arts.

Reviewer of Thinking of you, in Edinburgh:- "The strongest performer was Richard Banks, as the Man, his portrayal of a father whose own life was being destroyed by his wife meant that his relationships with his children suffered to a point where he doesn't know how to communicate with them and he can only vent his frustrations on his daughter. His portrayal of the man desperately trying to cling to some vestige of the happy family life, through to his own desperation at his now ex-wife's incessant late night phone calls, via two powerful cafe scenes with his daughter,and intolerable birthday parties; show power, control, frustration, sympathy and even perfectly delivered humour. An actor I hope will see more of in the future and a performance I would encourage others to view whilst in Edinburgh. A performance of real class."
