Scott Turnbull

Scott Turnbull moved from Stockton-on-Tees to Liverpool to study acting at LIPA. He won the Connexions Young Adult Achiever Award in 2006 and his first job after graduating was a regular part in TV show Byker Grove.

He has since worked extensively in theatre at Northern Stage, Nottingham Playhouse, The Old Vic and Polka Theatre, as well as with companies such as Greyscale, Unlimited and Catherine Wheels.

In 2011, Scott won The Journal’s North East Actor of the Year for John Retallack’s adaptation of Apples and was also voted one to watch by The Observer. In 2013, he joined Greyscale and has toured all across the globe in their award-winning show Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone.

A couple of years ago, after inheriting his ex-girlfriend's overhead projector and learning to harness its incredible 80’s simplicity, Scott began creating sketches and comic strips that could be used in performance. With the help of ARC, Northern Stage and Greyscale, he created Where Do All the Dead Pigeons Go?

Scott's work isn't always inspired by Teesside but it certainly appears to be quite influential: "I'd like to a do a show about a zombie apocalypse in Teesside, or a version of the Blues Brothers with two siblings from Middlesbrough, or a comic story about a wrestler with spatulas for hands called The Stockton Grappler or Spatulacas".
