Bennet performed in his first play at the age of 11. He played the king in a school production of Rumpelstiltskin. From an early age Bennet realised that acting was a safe way to express and explore emotion. He performed lead roles with a youth theatre in works by Peter Schaffer, Carol Churchill, Philip Ridley, and many other great authors; getting the chance to perform in excellent theatres with excellent directors, both in England and abroad.
Continuing his education, Bennet went to the Bristol old Vic Theatre School at the age of 23. There he learnt how to speak Shakespeare, and a great many technical acting skills. Upon graduating he earned his bread and butter in television work, and has been lucky enough to gain his own children’s TV series “Captain Mack”.
He also found time to come to Denmark and regularly perform in the Crazy Christmas Cabaret. By performing in “Wit” and “Love and Money” Bennet is getting back to what he loves best; performing in smaller intimate spaces with well-written works.
