I always had an interest in performing from a very early age. From the first pantomime I watched at the old Granada Cinema/Theatre in 1963, I sat watching totally enthralled and thought at that time “that’s what I want to do when I grow up”.
After leaving school with aspirations to be a police officer I joined a small church hall drama group. It was there that my passion grew.
I managed to gain membership to Equity in 1992. Going on to do some extra/walk on work on various television programmes. I was lucky enough to be cast as a credited actor on Eastenders and This Life in the mid 1990’s also performing on stage in various regional theatre tours.
I took a break during the early part of the new millennium. In early 2018 I was recovering from major knee surgery and during this time started feeling that I wanted to try my hand at acting again. So here I am having attended a couple of screen acting workshops with Paul Dudbridge in November 2018, about to attend a masterclass with Mark Mc Gann (Drama Direct) and have recently been offered a part in a web series being filmed in Bristol during March and April.
My next step is to secure representation with a reputable London agent.
