Stuart Bray specialises in all the processes involved in prosthetic and make-up effects, from their design and sculpture to the moulding, casting and their impressive application.

A freelance make-up effects artist since 1994, Stuart’s career has seen him work on some of the biggest film and TV features, including Saving Private Ryan, The Mummy 1 & 2, Shaun of the Dead and Stardust. Stuart has most recently worked in the prosthetics team on the set of the renowned Game of Thrones TV series.

Stuart began as a foam technician on the set of the film Mary Reilly, starring Julia Roberts, and progressed to a prosthetic make-up artist for the film Alice in Wonderland in the late 90s. Continuing his career as a special effects make-up artist on the sets of Blade II and The Mummy Returns, Stuart has since worked as the special make-up supervisor for Doctor Who, and the prosthetics supervisor on the TV series Hex.

Since 2010, Stuart has been teaching the artistry of prosthetics to aspiring make-up artists at Greasepaint, in between his work on some of the world’s biggest film and TV sets. He now joins The Iver Academy as a tutor, ready to share his first-hand knowledge of the world of prosthetics with students on our prosthetics courses
