About me

I took up acting late in life when, in 2010, I decided to audition for a play at The Rose Theatre, Kingston, and, on being cast immediately wanted more.
Very soon other parts, as diverse as 'George Harrison' in a Beatles tribute play and 'Mr Marlow' in 'She Stoops to Conquer', soon followed and with an agent now on board roles in short films came along together with my first appearance at The Camden Fringe. I played a lead character, 'Tony Mirra' in the major television series 'Mafias Greatest Hits' and took a leading role in the British Council funded 'Tea & Crumpets' a dramatic short film about the horrors of sex trafficking as well as appearing on a TV game show in Japan as 'The Exorcist'.
My first feature films were 'London Latino' and 'M.O.N.E.Y.' featuring Emmy Award winning actor Wil Johnson. Also cast by 'Redzz', the popular rap artist, as the lead in his million plus viewed video 'The Prisoner' just prior to playing the crazy serial killer 'Papa' in the horror film 'The Hunted' which was launched at Cannes in 2013. In the short film 'In A Dream', written and directed by the very talented guys who worked on the visual effects of Wachowski's 'Cloud Atlas', I was cast as the 'TV Chat Show Host'.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of 'Dr Who' the BBC ran a huge Worldwide promotion and cast me as 'Tom Baker' when launched in October 2013, the year ending on another high note for me when playing 'Shamrayev' in Chekhov's 'The Seagull' on the London fringe theatre circuit.
Throughout 2014 the steady stream of work continued the climax being cast as 'King Saul' in Hollywood director Timothy Chey's production of 'David and Goliath' which was launched across the U.S.A in 2015. Further short films included the the neo-noir psych-thriller 'Night Drive' during 2016 and again working with the BBC at their annual 'Music Awards'. With my latest feature film, 'Day Rises. I Fall', a Polish/UK production, in which I have a leading role planned for European release in 2017 the future is indeed looking bright.
