At 24, Andrew Whyment has already done things that most would only dream of achieving in a lifetime. An acclaimed director and theatrical entrepreneur, his directorial credits include productions at the Old Vic Tunnels. He is an associate of the National Youth Theatre and runs his own company, Squint, which has received rave reviews for productions Bluebird and Frozen, the latter of which was described as "fascinating", "skilful" and "slick" by reviewers. On paper he's a youthful amalgamation of Kevin Spacey and Alan Sugar. However, upon meeting Whyment, currently doing an MFA in Theatre Directing at Birkbeck College, it is immediately obvious that any hunger for fame and power is not part of his agenda. Rather, he's the kind of director who believes in being absolutely engaged with every aspect of his productions, in working collaboratively and in challenging himself continually. "I like to think I take risks as often as possible," he tells me in between sips of tea. Whyment created Squint when he was only in his second year of university. From being a young actor in the company to becoming an Associate, NYT seems to have provided Whyment with brilliant opportunities and he can't recommend it enough to young people trying to penetrate the industry. Does he miss acting? "I do! I love to be directed. He recalls a particularly memorable experience from a run of interactive theatre in Glastonbury Festival's Block 9, inside a set built to replicate the London underground. Whyment started performing at midnight each night and worked till 4am each morning. Now well on his way to being a renowned director, it seems that Whyment is a bit of a Renaissance man; unafraid of getting his hands dirty as a performer, bringing aspects of film and sound into the creative space and taking risks at every opportunity. It looks like he's got it all sorted, so is there any one piece of advice he would give to someone who'd like to take a similar path? His answer is that you shouldn't be afraid to take part in a lot of different projects. As long as you are engaged with each one of them, he believes there's nothing wrong with throwing yourself into many roles.
