About Me

August 2020. I trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama from 1974 to 1977 and have an acting career spanning over 40 years. My latest role is as Michael Ellacott in the Strike series on BBC1/HBO.


I have featured in dozens of TV shows and was awarded 'Best cast in a movie' in 1997 by SAG for Playing Barry in The Full Monty.

I'm a BAFTA film voting member.


I am also an artist studying with the Open College of the Arts, the distance learning college of the University for the Creative Arts, in what would be my second year at full time uni.

September 2020: Following the Covid -19 lockdown TV/film production is starting up again and I am getting my first self tapes for broadcast TV/feature films.  During lockdown I made a small home studio which has made self taping much easier. I am ready and open for business.
