About Casey

About Casey

Casey is a Greek-Australian actor based in Melbourne, Australia. Acting since early childhood, Casey graduated from his degree at the National Theatre Drama School in 2017.

Upon graduation, Casey was selected as the prestigious Red Stitch Actors' Theatre's Graduate Ensemble Member for 2018.
Casey then appeared in Red Stitch's 2018 production of The Antipodes by Annie Baker (dir. Ella Caldwell). The show was named in Time Out's Top 10 Melbourne productions for 2018

Casey then played a lead role in Red Stitch's tour of Desert, 6:29pm by Morgan Rose at the 2018 Wuzhen Theatre Festival in China. The show enjoyed a largely successful sold out season.

 

Most recently, Casey has been lauded as "adorably awkward" (Sydney Morning Herald) and "delightfully at home" (Theatre Press) in the Australian Premiere of Clare Barron's award winning play Dance Nation (Dir. Maude Davey). The Australian called it "a joyous, enlivening, life-affirming fireball of a thing, an-all-too rare reminder that theatre can outmuscle any art form." 

Dance Nation was playing at Red Stitch as part of the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Casey has recently been accepted to the internationally renown Ecole Philippe Gaulier (Theatre School). This will see Casey travel to France in October where he will study several dramatic disciplines under Philippe Gaulier.
