Born and raised in sunny South Africa where most of his childhood was spent outside- exploring with friends on their bikes, building forts in the woods and camping out under the stars in the Magaliesberg mountains. Deville grew up surrounded by incredible storytellers, from his dad’s wildly fantastical bedtime stories to the pages of Terry Pratchett, David Gemmell, and C.S Lewis. They ignited his imagination and inspired him to seek grand adventures of his own. Having gymnasts in the family meant He was introduced to a world of physical training from a young age, and witnessing what the human body is capable of inspired Deville to train and develop that potential. Being a pretty adventurous kid, He often found his way onto rooftops and buildings. When Deville discovered parkour it was a natural fit. He became a student of movement. All of it- from parkour and capoeira to acrobatics and jiu-jitsu. It became part of his lifestyle and eventually his career. Screen combat, extreme sports, horsemanship, swordsmanship, and weapons proficiency are among some of the more specialized abilities that his experience in stunt work has afforded him. Being every bit as passionate about the craft of acting, Deville trained in New York at the New York Conservatory for dramatic arts. There he honed his on-screen technique before heading to LA to pursue it further. With an arsenal of action skills to compliment his acting craft, Deville is in his element when these twofold passions of physicality and theatricality are brought together.
