Ben Tavassoli | Speaker Biography

Starred in "An Acceptable Loss" with Jamie Lee Curtis
Lead role in BBC One's "New Blood"
Advocates for mental health awareness in the entertainment industry

Ben Tavassoli is a talented actor known for his work in television and film, with roles in shows like 'Silent Witness' and 'Bulletproof,' as well as his appearance in the film 'An Acceptable Loss' alongside Jamie Lee Curtis. However, it is Ben's candour and honesty regarding his battles with mental health that make him so relatable and inspirational. The entertainment industry can be demanding and competitive, and the pressure to constantly secure the next job can take a toll on an actor's mental and emotional well-being. By sharing his experiences and struggles, he not only humanizes the challenges faced by people from all walks of life but also helps raise awareness about mental health issues, making it easier for others to relate to and seek help when needed. Ben's journey in the entertainment industry has been nothing short of remarkable. It all began in 2015 when he left drama school early, lured by the opportunity presented when scouted by one of the UK's leading talent agencies. This decision led to an immediate role in the Paul Abbott-created cop drama "No Offence" on Channel 4, setting the stage for his career's ascent. Ben's talent quickly caught the attention of viewers, and he went on to play significant roles in popular series such as BBC's "Silent Witness" and the US Fox production "Tyrant," from the creators of "Homeland." However, his career reached new heights when he was cast as the lead character Rash in the BBC One detective drama "New Blood," written by Anthony Horowitz. This role thrust him into the spotlight and showcased his acting prowess. Crossing the Atlantic, Ben secured the lead role in the international cinema feature film "An Acceptable Loss," sharing the screen with the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis. He also played a US paratrooper in the Warner Brothers blockbuster "Overlord," produced by none other than JJ Abrams of "Star Wars" fame. Filmed at Warner Brothers Studios, this experience further solidified Ben's presence in the industry. Back in the UK, Ben garnered significant public recognition for his portrayal of the notorious bad boy Mikey Markides in the Sky One series "Bulletproof." His versatility as an actor shone through in this role, earning him a dedicated following. Recently, Ben captivated audiences as Louis Costa in the hit Channel 4 prison drama "Screw." This role is yet another testament to his acting abilities and his ability to tackle diverse characters. Beyond his acting career, Ben is eager to share the valuable lessons he has learned throughout his rollercoaster journey in the entertainment industry. From working under pressure alongside industry giants to overcoming personal challenges and struggles with mental health, he is committed to sharing his experiences and insights with others. As he continues to thrive in his career, Ben's story serves as an inspiration to aspiring individuals facing their own obstacles in life.
