  3. Patrick Caldwell

    Hey my name’s Patrick Caldwell, I’m 19 from Perth in Western Australia. To put it bluntly, I’ve studied drama for 15 years, mostly stage, and I just feel that TV/movies are for me. I’m young, fresh-faced and ready. I understand the struggles of having little due to living with a man with a brain disorder due to drinking too much when I was 12 and due to that I’ve been exposed to such a high level of legal, political and dramatic battles that no 12 year old should had to of experienced. Through it all though, I’m still smiling, laughing and just enjoying life. I’d say my sense of humour is somewhat ‘taboo’ as I say the first things on my mind (it’s a blessing a curse, believe me). At the same time though I know when it’s time to mess around and time to work. I’m not saying I’m the guy for this movie or that I’ll get you guys an Oscar, what I’m saying is, I can give you reality.
    All I ask in return is a chance.

    Follow my twitter @rckcldwll11 I won’t let you down.
