Thomas Cardwell is an appropriately ridiculous British American Actor and Director, who appeared as Cardenio in the first fully staged reconstruction of Shakespeare’s ‘lost’ play The History of Cardenio, featured in the New Oxford Shakespeare Complete Works.

He originated the role of Konig the clown in Zirkus Grimm – a musical adaptation of the Grimm Fairy Tales, brought to life by the inhabitants of a German Circus – revisiting the skills used in one of his first roles: as P.T. Barnum in Barnum.


Cardwell is a Co-Founder of EclecticPond Theatre Company, and served as Artistic Director from 2010 – 2016. Filmed work includes directing Beneath our Masks, which he also wrote and appeared in. Cardwell trained at The Birmingham Theatre School.

Around other projects he is currently working on a one-man show, adapted from a classic Sherlock Holmes adventure.
