It started off with Oliver Kennett’s classmates persuading him to lead the school assembly, which helped to build his confidence. His teachers also encouraged him to express his thoughts and emotions through acting. From there, Oliver went on to be a part of more and more plays and has fond memories of performing musicals like Cat in the Hat under the mentorship of his teachers. He has also acted in a feature film written and directed by one of the school parents, called A Gran Plan, acting opposite popular Bollywood actress Farida Jalal. 

At the age of 10, Oliver won an award for his acting in the USA, and even had his film screened in film festivals like the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. When a film he acted in was screened over the weekend in a local cinema in Singapore, the whole school turned up to watch it together.

“I never would have gotten here if not for the EtonHouse community,” shares Oliver, who has graduated from School of the Arts, Singapore (SOTA) with a Diploma in Theatre. “I came to realise that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“When I act, I don’t just draw from the bad memories of my mother’s passing, but also the good memories that came out of it,” says Oliver, who feels that this element makes his performances and the characters he plays more powerful.
