About Me

As you may have gathered from all the headings, my name is Bethan Leyshon and I'm a Welsh actor and writer for stage and screen.


I was born and grew up in South West Wales before moving to England for secondary school and I have wanted to write and perform professionally for as long as I can remember, probably as a result of competing in the Urdd Eisteddfod as a child. (I loved it.)


After later studying English Literature at Swansea University, I headed off to the Oxford School of Drama and then the Guildford School of Acting, graduating with an MA in Acting in 2016. A couple of months later, between acting jobs, I co-wrote my first stage play, which was produced later that year, and I have been writing professionally alongside my acting work ever since.


That's probably enough about me but if you'd like to know more about my acting or writing work, please take a look at the pages linked below, where you'll find my CVs and reviews of my work.
