After graduating from the Music Theatre program at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, Brendan received the Bound For Broadway Scholarship from the Talent Development Project and American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. He then went on to perform as a soloist for legendary lyricist Sheldon Harnick’s Broadway Up Close and Personal at The John F. Kennedy Centre in Washington DC and the Rick Jensen directed cabaret Bound for Broadway in New York.
Back home, Brendan has since made a strong name for himself, understudying Zack Mayo in Gordon Frost Organisation’s production of An Officer and A Gentleman, as Rocky in the 2014-15 Australian tour of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show and as a resident aerialist at Sydney’s Slide Lounge El Circo. He is a proud Lululemon Athletica ambassador and founder of The Movement Academy Australia, a physical training program for performing artists, calisthenics enthusiasts and everyday athletes with a passion for enhanced movement.
Brendan is delighted to be joining the cast of The Bodyguard on its Australian premiere.
