Brian Sergent

Actor

Whether playing scumbags, politicians, or the salt of the earth, Brian Sergent makes an invigorating screen presence. Since debuting aged 15 on Close to Home. he has gone on to memorable roles in movies The Shirt (as a psychotic junkie) and Eagle vs Shark, plus Outrageous Fortune. His gift for accents - and comedy - has enlivened TV's Skitz, Pulp Comedy, Public Eye, movie Meet the Feebles, and many commercials.  

By the neatly managed conclusion, Sergent, both as dramatist and actor, had pulled off a remarkable tour de force. He thoroughly deserved his standing ovation.  Harry Ricketts, in a Listener review of Sergent’s play The Love of Humankind
