Richard Neville

Richard is an actor, voiceover artist and writer born and raised in Dublin. He first developed his love of acting in the Players Theatre while at Trinity College Dublin.

Currently he is in rehearsals for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at Smock Alley Theatre. He recently completed a run of original play The Caoining as part of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival.

He has performed in a variety of projects for screen, notably in IFTA-nominated short film  Debutante and short film Attend to Your Own Mask First. He has several projects in post-production, including A Pilgrim’s Ballad, Fairy Fort, Intoxicating, A Deep Dream and season five of Bloodline Detectives on Discovery+.

Richard is comfortable with classical, Shakespearean and contemporary pieces. He performed as Sebastian and Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night across stately homes and gardens of Leinster with Gift Horse Theatre, and as Rosaura in a gender-bent version of Calderón de la Barca’s Life is a Dream at the Players Theatre.

He is an enthusiastic singer with a rich, basso profundo voice. He had a lead role in this year’s Scene + Heard Festival at Smock Alley Theatre in a sold-out performance of quirky, extraterrestrial musical Space Deli. He also appeared in Jesus Christ Superstar at the  O’Reilly Theatre before the run was cut short due to the COVID pandemic.

His voice will be featured in the Dunbrody Famine Experience exhibit, which is currently in post-production.

Richard has a deep love of languages and has previously lived in France, Japan and Canada. He is a certified C1 (fluent) speaker of French and Spanish under the CEFR European framework, has fluent Irish and conversational Japanese.

He loves horror, and has previously performed at The Nightmare Realm.
