“I owe everything to PACE. Not just the skills I learnt that I can use when acting, but how to have confidence in myself.  It helped me find joy in meeting new people and not be afraid of being me. It’s still the happiest time of my life. I felt like I had a voice and was listened to at PACE even though I was young. It taught me I had value and worth which has been a vital part in becoming an actor but also just in growing up.”

James McArdle
