Tel Benjamin

company 2014


Born and raised in the Inner West of Sydney, Tel had a profound passion for film and theatre at a very early age. At the age of 8 Tel began his acting training at ATYP where he gained confidence and knowledge for the craft for 8 years. After finishing his HSC he continued his passion for learning and refining his abilities and was accepted into the full time Actor's Centre Australia course in 2012.
Some of the standout moments in Tel’s time at the Actor's Centre Australia have been playing the iconic King Lear under direction by George Ogilvie and Jennifer West, exploring the role of Lopakhin in “Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard” directed by Anthony Skuse and getting back in touch with his comedy roots working on “Barefoot in the Park” with Adam Cook.
Tel’s furious devotion to creating has led him to begin to write and direct his own film work, firmly believing you must not wait for the phone to ring. He is very much looking forward to collaborating with other artists and exploring what the Australian and international industries have to offer.
