A former Rothesay Primary pupil is hoping that his starring role in a college production of The Plaza Suite will set him on the path to following in the footsteps of fellow Glasgow Clyde College graduates who have enjoyed successful careers in Hollywood.

Grant Lawson impressed audiences with his performance in the show and now hopes to emulate the success of Breaking Bad’s Laura Fraser and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Iain De Caestecker.

The 24-year-old said: “I’ve wanted to act since I was a child and I really enjoyed performing in The Plaza Suite. The show was our last college productions so it was great to see all our hard work coming together. I feel like my college course has really prepared me for working in the industry as it has taught me what it’s really like to act in professional shows.”
