“Bruce is a gem. He's easy and comfortable to work with. You can count on him to communicate clearly and deliver consistently. He took the time to understand his character and went the extra mile(s) to make sure that he was contributing as much as possible to our project. I'd be happy to work with him in the future.

“I have worked with actors in China and now the USA. I found Bruce Purcell as professional in his approach to the material and his performance as any I've worked with.

Sihai ZhuFilmmaker

“On set, Bruce's talent blew me away. He has a wide acting range from being immensely comical to portraying the perfect amount of emotion in a scene. Bruce is someone to learn from and look up to due to his vast amount of experience and his amicable character.
