Paul Clayton has stepped down from his role at the Actors Centre in London after 10 years.
Clayton has been chairman of the London-based organisation’s board for eight years, and a trustee and director for the past decade.
During his time at the actor training organisation, he has occasionally taught classes and hosted many events, including Off The Record talks with actors.
A statement from the Actors Centre said: “Paul will be very hard to replace – his contribution, passion and commitment to the work of the Actors Centre over the past 10 years have been of great value to the organisation, and he will be much missed. We wish him well in future endeavours.”
Clayton said: “It’s been a fantastic opportunity to work with the next generation of brilliant young actors and graduates.
“There have been highs and lows, but the highs have been fantastic. I like my life to be full of challenge and I am moving on to new ones. As patron of the Hope Theatre [in London] I will be encouraging much more actor-led work, and who knows, I may even do a bit more myself.”
It has not been confirmed when a replacement will be announced.
