About Me

I'm a professional actor, musician and filmmaker from Northamptonshire, England. I am currently pursuing my MFA at the renowned Actors Studio Drama School in NYC.

In 2019, I will make my feature film debut as the protagonist in Escape 2120, based on Brian Bennett's novel The Magician's Horses

I have had lead roles in various dramatic and comedic indie films including an award winning Monty Python style spoof set in a Game of Thrones World. Check out the pages On Film and News for more information on my upcoming film projects. 

On stage, I have specialised in comedic leads ranging from Ken Gorman in the Neil Simon farce, Rumors, Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the personable recluse, John Brown in Tom Stoppard’s A Separate Peace.

“Pritchard is hilarious in his portrayal of Ken Gorman. After temporarily losing his hearing due to a misfired gunshot toward the beginning of the play, the character’s humor develops around his physicality as well as his hilarious misunderstandings. Moments of Ken-based hilarity include crawling around on the floor following mysterious yet “cat sounds.” Pritchard brings his own unique energy to the role—a naïveté accented by a heroic passion that, given the absurdity of the play, becomes delightful and fascinating to watch.”
