Actor, Model, Musician, Dancer, Film & Stage Crew

Martin Gallagher is an actor/director/musician residing in Sydney. His University credits are a Bachelor of Performance from UOW, completed in 2013. 2014 was his first glimpse of the professional industry life with casting in the lead role Alan Strang of EQUUS, directing his first original work Hipster Apocalypse, and a Nomination of 'Best Actor' at Melting Pot Theatre. In early January 2015 he signed a contract with Iconic Performances, and now tours around the country. However Martin is still looking for suitable representation. He hopes that this site will give at least some access, views, and communication to other creatives in the field. His motto for industry life; 'Lets see what we can create'.
