Paul Butterworth actor based in London UK

About Me

I trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama from 1974/77 and have an acting career spanning over 40 years. I have featured in dozens of TV shows, was awarded 'Best cast in a movie' in 1997 by SAG, USA for Barry in The Full Monty, and am a voting BAFTA member.

Most recently I play Michael Ellacott (semi-regular) in Lethal White, the J.K.Rowling TV series Strike  featuring Tom Burke and Holiday Grainger to be aired on the BBC and in USA in September 2020.


I also have a BA Combined studies (English, History and Hermeneutics) from Leeds Polytechnic in 1988. And am currently a Dip HE Painting  student with University for the Creative Arts/Open College of the Arts, distance Learning.

I was recently awarded an Enterprise Grant from my university to start an art practice and have sold original paintings and prints on Saatchi Art Online to Amreica and the UK. My paintings are also selling well locally, but I've had to put my art practice on hold during the Covid crisis.


However, the Saatchi prints of my paintings are Fine Art quality and available worldwide.
