About me

He took up acting late in life when he decided to audition for a play at The Rose Theatre in S.W. London. Other theatrical 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 on board roles in short films and TV were soon forthcoming. He played the 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. His first feature films were 'London Latino' and 'M.O.N.E.Y.' featuring Emmy Award winning actor Wil Johnson. In 2013, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of 'Dr Who' the BBC ran a huge Worldwide promotion and cast him to play 'Tom Baker', the year ending on another high note when playing 'Shamrayev' in Chekhov's 'The Seagull' on the London fringe. Throughout 2014 the steady stream of work continued the climax being cast as 'King Saul' in Hollywood director Timothy Chey's feature film production of 'David and Goliath' which launched across the U.S.A in 2015. Further short films included the neo-noir psych-thriller 'Night Drive' and again working with the BBC at their annual 'Music Awards'. The early months of 2017 have seen some dramatic developments, now cast in International feature films 'Day Rises. I Fall', a Polish/UK production, in which he has a leading role, the Greek/UK production of ‘Sleepless Daphne’ and the the USA feature production of ‘The Lovers’.
