Renford Reject Martin Delaney Shares His Advise on How Parents Can Best Support Their Children Who Want to Work in the Arts

The theatre industry can be a tough one to crack, particularly for those starting out. Most parents whose children tell them they want to perform will have two burning ambitions of their own: to support them in following their passion, but also to avoid potential pitfalls along the way. Here are some key tips and reminders to help parents achieve both those aims. In a recent article in The Stage, Renford Rejects star Martin Delaney gave his advice on how parents of children who aspire to be actors can best support their kids.

Having graduated from West End productions of Oliver! and Peter Pan, and fondly remembered as the chip-loving Jason Summerbee in Nickelodeon UK's hit comedy Renford Rejects, to more adult roles on prime time TV and films such as Zero Dark Thirty, Martin has successfully made the transition from child to adult actor.

His advice to parents who would like to give their own children the same chance? To keep it real. “Let them be themselves. There’s nothing worse than pushy parents who want their child to be a certain way. Let them practise, let them play, let them learn. It’s important that any young actor brings whatever they have inside them. That authenticity will take them where they want to go.”

And it would be rude not to include the Renford Rejects theme in this post, wouldn't it? ;)
