Congratulations to former student Peter Ash – “Best Newcomer” at the NTA’s
Here at Xaverian we are always pleased to see a former student be successful. Peter, who studied A-levels in Media, Drama and English at the college from 2001 to 2003 won a 2020 National Television Award for ‘Best Newcomer’ for his role in Coronation Street. After leaving the college Peter secured a place at Glasgow School of Music and Drama and at 18 years old played Darius Fry, the teen twinkle-toes of ITV1’s Footballers’ Wives.
Peter’s Drama teacher said, “Peter was an instinctive actor who knew everything about his character almost immediately. He showed an impressive level of professionalism and commitment. He has a place next year at the Glasgow School of Music and Drama.” After roles in shows like Casualty, The Royal and Hollyoaks Peter is currently settled in the role of Paul Foreman in Coronation Street for which in won his NTA.
Once again a massive congratulations to Peter on all his success and his win at the NTAs. Well deserved.
