Luke Maddison – ‘Nathan’

Luke Maddison is the first actor to join Steel and Iron, which is no shock since he stars in our latest music video INDUSTRY. Luke has been a part of the production since it’s conception and will play the part of ‘Nathan’. 

Luke is a professional actor based in the North East. Beginning his career at 18, Luke has since been very lucky to delve into many projects and genres of performance including stage and Television as well as radio and opera.

Luke always enjoys collaborating with Twenty Seven Productions and is looking forward to finally bringing the people of Teesside something to be proud of in “Steel and Iron” this summer! It has been a long time in the works and he cannot wait for you all to see it!

Frances McNamee – ‘Steph’

Frances trained at East 15 Acting School and was winner of the Laurence Olivier Bursary in 2008.

I’m thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic story about a community trying to rebuild and redefine itself-something very close to my heart having grown up in the North East in the 90’s. I can’t wait to bring Steel and Iron to life and sing that beautiful music!
