About Me

A vicar's son raised in Yorkshire I trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London in the 1970's and then went straight into Northern TV and film. 

I was awarded 'Best cast in a movie' in 1997 by SAG for Playing Barry in The Full Monty.

My latest role is as Michael Ellacott (Holliday Grainger's dad) in the Strike series on BBC1/HBO. 

 

I'm an Equity and BAFTA voting member.

When not acting I am an artist artist and second year BA (Hons) Painting undergraduate with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham - Open College of the Arts campus. I hope to graduate in 2023.
