Who is David Payne?

Born in London, England, David Payne discovered his calling as an actor portraying C. S. Lewis in the stage production of Shadowlands at Nashville's prestigious Tennessee Performing Arts Center.  Acclaimed for the power, sensitivity, and authenticity of his portrayal of C. S. Lewis in the shows Shadowlands, In Search of Joy, and Weep for Joy, Payne now tours the U.S. performing his Lewis-inspired repertoire, which also includes his characterization of "Professor Daemon" in Target Practice - a show that found its inspiration from Lewis's The Screwtape Letters.  More recently, he has starred as Aslan the Lion in U.S. tours of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe and The Magician's Nephew.  His latest stage production is Prisoner of Passion.

Drawing from the Pauline epistles and using the text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) translation, Payne delivers a powerful and inspiring presentation as Paul the apostle reflecting on his life in Christ.
