A class act- International actor Richard Stables

Richard Stables

Richard Stables

Richard Stables is an Australian/British actor. Richard says he knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 11 years old but never really got around to doing it until the age of 19. He saw an English actor named Danny Webb play Hamlet in an English Touring Company production of ‘Hamlet’ in Perth where he grew up, and he says he felt he had to just jump in and do it.

Richard first trained at the KAFF theatre in Perth with Will McKaskill when he was 20. He then trained at drama school in London; the ‘Arts Educational Schools London’ for 3 years. He says some of his biggest inspirations include Brando, De Niro, Pacino, Duvall, Gena Rowlands, Ellen Burstyn; the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s method guys. Others include Laurence Oliver, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day Lewis, Ralph Fiennes, Judi
Dench and Anthony Hopkins.

Gena Rowlands would be his ideal co-star saying that despite her age, it would be an absolute honor to work with her. “I’ve been a huge fan, and of course her husband too. The late great John Cassavettes.” “ I would love to work with her because she always transforms into these crazy, strong yet tender characters.” “When she performs, she does what all great actors do, she throws it all away, trusts that its within her and around her, connects to her partner, her circumstance and plays an action; living truthfully and fully in the moment. It’s very sexy.”

‘The Power of Darkness’ has been his favorite role to play so far. He says he is working on a second feature film with Greg Blakey. In future he would like to move to LA; be bicoastal (between LA and New York), continue training with the ‘greats’, and keep making films and theatre with talented artists.

A man of many talents! Calum Winsor

The handsome Calum Winsor

The handsome Calum Winsor

Calum Winsor is a dancer, actor, and model that hails from the sunny land of Australia. At the relatively young age of twenty six, Calum has found fame and success through his many successful modeling campaigns, and now finds himself as the face of the latest Vodafone marketing campaign, also known as the Lightning Fast Man. But how did such a young man from such a large city as Sydney get himself noticed so early?

Well, if Calum Winsor has one secret which he finds it incredibly difficult to keep, it is that he is ridiculously talented. What makes him such a brilliant person to work with is his versatility, which comes from his wide life experiences. As a young man, he competed in high level sports competitions, and his physique and good looks soon caught the eye of the modeling industry. By the tender age of fifteen, Calum was modeling for exciting clothing and brands, and excelling at it.

What makes Calum such a brilliant model is one simple fact: he loves being in front of the camera. He has admitted so himself, and is consistently pushing himself outside of his limits to better his modeling techniques and tools. Every young model needs people to look up to, to encourage them to constantly succeed, and Calum is no different. He is particularly inspired by the gorgeous Channing Tatum, another man who has moved from sports to modeling and acting. However, it is not just male models that Calum has a high level of respect for: he also loves the way that Tyra Banks has continued to model throughout the years, allowing her age to be no barrier in her career.

No one knows exactly where Calum Winsor will be this time next year, but he will certainly be a much more recognized face after his move to Vodafone.
