Seyan Sarvan was born on May 3 1994, in London, England, to an Indian Sikh Family. She began acting at the age of 16, playing the role of ‘O’Brien in 1984 by George Orwell adapted by Matthew Dunster at the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith. As a young teen, she then continued to perform in prominent London Theatres such as, The Arcola & The Battersea Arts Centre; as well as appearing in a Channel4 Young Talent Short Film ‘R.I.P’ directed by BAFTA Award Winning, Colin O’Toole. Sarvan then trained as an Actor at LCM, graduating with a BA (Hons) in Acting. Whilst in training, Sarvan wrote her first play, ‘The Grid,’ raising awareness of mental health in Children, and also developed the adaptation of ‘The White Devil by Webster’ with Screenwriter, Simon Lewis. Both plays were performed in London Theatres and proceeds were given to the ‘Mental Fight Club’. She was then cast in leading roles in Feature Film, Spin State by Ross A Wilson. 51 States by Cassandra Virdee, which won ‘Official BFI Select’ of 2020. For stage: ‘Moonfleece’ by Philip Ridley, and ‘Hecuba’ for Kali Theatre Co. In 2021 her performance as Lizbeth Farooqi in ‘It’s a Sin’ by Russell T Davies received much acclaim. Her 2022 screen release was The Baby by Sian Robins-Grace and Lucy Gaymer, produced by HBO, SKY and Sister Pictures. She played the role of Nour El-Mistry opposite Tanya Reynolds. She has just finished the 2023 run of The Boys Are Kissing by Zak Zarafashan, directed by Lisa Spirling at Theatre 503. For which she was nominated for Lead Performance in a Play by the OFFIES. Sarvan’s body of work, thus far, conveys her drive and focus to represent the underrepresented and to connect minorities and the marginalised to the world at large. She believes that, as an industry, we are in a powerful position to shape our audiences’ perception of the world. Who we see on our stages and screens, and the stories that are told, should always reflect and integrate the unheard stories of our society.
