At the age of ten, Brocklebank joined several local amateur dramatic societies with his maternal grandmother and was soon hooked on performing. He took private LAMDA tuition outside of school and gained a teaching qualification in drama. In 1994 he was cast in a children's TV series by Ragdoll Productions called Brum. However it wasn't until 1995, when at 15, Brocklebank was cast as Ralph in an RSC production of Lord of the Flies that his professional career really began. He moved to London in 1996 and trained at Redroofs Theatre School on a post grad, two year musical theatre course. He was allowed to work while he was there to pay off his fees. It was during this time that Brocklebank filmed Merlin and Shakespeare in Love opposite Gwyneth Paltrow and Judi Dench.
