RuTC Alumnus Stars in Blockbuster Film Dunkirk

Friday 18 August 2017

Fionn Whitehead, former student at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC), has made his film debut as the character Tommy in the World War II drama Dunkirk.

Fionn attended RuTC between 2013-2015 and studied A Levels in Drama & Theatre Studies, History, Sociology and Spanish, achieving A-C grades.

His first major role was in the ITV mini-series, HIM, before securing his role as Tommy in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, alongside well-known actors Tom Hardy and Harry Styles.

Mary Cassidy, Performing Arts Lecturer at RuTC, was one of Fionn’s A Level Drama & Theatre Studies teachers and commented “Fionn was an exceptional student during his time at the college, with a fast wit, excellent work ethic and a sensitive, thoughtful response to both the work and his fellow students.”
