Holland Park interviewed actor, writer, and director, Sam Hoare, to find out how his education has influenced his career choice.

Education: Ludgrove, Eton College, Edinburgh University

How did your education inform your choice of career?

The opportunities and facilities provided at Ludgrove and, in particular, Eton enabled me to explore, and then to fall in love with, the performing arts and the thrill of telling a story or stepping onto a stage.

Would you be doing what you are now if you’d been to a different school?

There’s no doubt that the incredibly supportive atmosphere at both schools, the high quality of the theatrical facilities and the opportunities to put on and take part in different plays every term was formative in my desire to be an actor.

Did you find a particular teacher at school or university especially inspirational?

My housemaster at Eton was passionate about the arts. He was a playwright himself, who’d had plays put on in London. He strongly encouraged me to pursue my interest in drama in a number of different ways, from performing in school plays to directing inter-house drama competitions.

What did your education give you that you are most grateful for?

A fantastic opportunity to explore my passions.

Sum up your education in three words:

Opportunity, encouragement, privilege.
