Alan O'Silva

Biography

In 1994 Alan O'Silva said a joke to a girl in the city-centre of his small mountain home-town bordering Transylvania. The girl took his hand and presented him to the local youth theatre Ariel, ran by his future mentor Geny Migleczi. He was on stage in the same night on the theatre's evening performance. One month later, he booked a lead part in a huge Greek tragedy called 'The Danaides' after Aeschylus, directed by the multi-awarded Silviu Purcarete. The show toured the world for three and a half years, collecting many awards at the biggest theatre festivals such as Edinburgh International Festival in UK or Lincoln Center Festival in New York. After that Alan did his Master of Drama degree at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama where he got empowered with the old/timeless Shakespeare and the new BBC fields of expression such as Radio, Television and Film. His one-man-show 'Fish On Dry Water' that he wrote / directed / performed was awarded four out five stars in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He also played the main suspect in the reputable detective TV series 'Taggart'. It was here when Alan discovered his passion for cinematography, and never let it go. Ever since, he played in dozens of movies, TV series and commercials. But he never forgot his first love, theatre, and from time to time came back to it, such as playing Casio in 'Othello' by Shakespeare directed by the multi-awarded Andriy Zholdak.
