About Active Image Roleplay
Active Image Roleplay was formed in 2000 by David Stedman and a consultant psychiatrist specifically to provide role players specialising in psychiatric and other medical conditions.
David Stedman has worked as an actor and teacher for over 25 years. He is a graduate in English and Drama from Bristol University with a postgraduate Diploma in Acting from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. He has a Postgraduate Certificate of Education and has taught in both secondary and primary schools in inner-city London. Between acting jobs, he also worked part-time for 3 years as a psychiatric nursing assistant at The Maudsley Hospital in South East London. He combines the skills and experience he has gathered to provide a unique and focused service.
David has worked closely with Maudsley Simulation to design and deliver a training course for actors working in psychiatric roleplay. This intensive two day course aims to develop an increased understanding of psychiatric conditions and the ways in which they can manifest.

We provide a diverse range of actors in terms of age and ethnicity. We cast from a pool of trained actors, most of whom we have worked with over many years.
