Darrel now has his sights firmly set on breaking into the world of television and more mainstream media/film…..
Darrel prides himself on his versatility and being a character actor. However, has a particular passion for playing antagonistic roles, both within the genres of Comedy and Drama.
“Darrel Draper’s performance as Joe, is a standout. Joe is the story’s antagonist and lacks the humanity of the other characters, but Draper is consistently convincing with a strong stage presence” – Anna Robinson, Everything Theatre.

He is extremely driven and dedicated to achieving his career aspirations. More than anything, Darrel just looks forward to bringing to life dynamic and interesting characters, no matter the platform.
