Year 6 student Will Mackinnon is a budding young actor, but his sights aren’t just set on stage and screen. In his free time, Will is also a young living history performer at a village themed around 17th century life!
Keep reading to see what Will’s typical day looks like, from his favourite lessons to what he does at the Living Village.
Will’s passion for living history first began as a love for acting. Four years ago, he joined a small drama group in Portsmouth. “That really boosted my confidence,” says Will, who was then encouraged to get his own acting agent.
Since then, Will has been rapidly growing his acting career. “My first and biggest acting achievement so far,” Will reveals, “was playing a young Johnny Cash for Reelz, an American channel.” Now, he’s also added live environmental acting to his roster!
Last year, his mum took him to Little Woodham 17th Century Living Village, where history buffs re-enact what it was like to live, work, eat, and play in the 1600s. It was love at first sight for Will, who says, “I asked then and there if I could join.”
So, what does a typically day in Will’s life look like? In Will’s own words, here’s everything he gets to enjoy — from lessons to acting to play.
