    Mark Newsome is a talented actor hailing from Oldham. Born and bred in a working-class family, Mark's gift for acting was unearthed during his teenage years at Oldham Theatre Workshop. He further cultivated his skills through training at the National Youth Theatre and later pursued a professional education at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, Wales. Mark's career is highlighted by his lead role in the critically acclaimed one-man show, "Phil Pearson's Blackpool: What A Shit Place to Die." This compelling performance explores Mark's journey towards self-acceptance, touching on themes of sexuality, autism, and personal battles with addiction. Not confined to the stage, Mark graced our screens as Prisoner 'Streaky' in the popular Channel 4 drama series, "SCREW". Beyond acting, Mark's talent shines through as a gifted Comedian, adding humour and depth to his multifaceted artistic portfolio.
