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 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 Michael Ellacott (Holliday Grainger's dad) in the Strike series on BBC1/HBO. 


I'm an Equity and BAFTA voting member.

I am also an artist artist and third year BA (Hons) Painting student with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham - Open College of the Arts campus (the UCA's distance learning campus). I started my degree in 2016 when my son went to university and am aiming to graduate in 2023.
