Joshua James Richards Wiki — Family, Nationality, Education
Joshua James Richards is the son of a former traveling preacher. While he was a kid, his family had to move around through various towns across the UK (which could be his hometown). Because of this, he was “always the new kid at school.” But he never let this factor affect his education.
Moreover, Joshua found a way to overcome his situation. He diverged his time into drawing and what’s more was, he realized he was good at it. Thus, his passion for arts developed from there.
Following his dreams, he later enrolled in NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts to study directing. Before that, he achieved his bachelor’s degree from Bournemouth University Film and Television School for Film and Creative Writing.
As for his nationality, Joshua could be British. But he was always fascinated with the Native American culture. He recalled that his father would wake him up at midnight to watch movies like The Searchers, which also got him curious about the American landscape.
Trivia: Joshua first moved to New York from Cornwall, England.
