Acting

Johnny Flynn is an actor, poet and songwriter. He fronts the band Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit, and has appeared in a number of plays including Richard Bean's 'The Heretic' and Jez Butterworth's 'Jerusalem'. In 2012, Flynn played parts in 'Twelfth Night' and 'Richard III' at Shakespeare's Globe and in the West End.

Johnny fell in love with the theatre at an early age, having a father and two brothers who were actors. At the age of 11 he bought a Bob Dylan record at a jumble sale and became captivated by the sound.

Johnny's band released their debut record A Larum in 2008, which was followed by the Sweet William EP in 2009 and their second full album Been Listening in 2010. He also wrote and recorded the score for Brian Crano's 2011 film 'A Bag of Hammers' which was released for download on ITunes.
