Ross left Hymers ten years ago in 2012 and went on to study French at UCL and French Literature at the Sorbonne (University of Paris). 

He has been steadily acting throughout the years and recently appeared in the new BBC comedy drama 'This Is Going To Hurt' with Ben Whishaw.  He has also just finished filming 'Allelujah', a feature film based on the Alan Bennett play, with Judi Dench (who opened the school's Judi Dench Theatre in 1995) and Derek Jacobi.

Ross appears in episode 4 as the character PJ.

Eternally flabbergasted to have been a small part of this amazing project!

Ross Tomlinson
