I have recently been filming the role of Colonel George Smith who recruits a Sikh regiment to help the British win WW1 in a feature film called Sajjan Singh Rangroot due to be released in 2018. I am filming now a supernatural pilot episode for TV in which i played two roles; a turn of the s century soldier that is reincarnated in present day as a merchant navy guy that becomes homeless as he continues to pay for crimes from an his earlier life.
Other recent work includes the lead role in an episode of the forthcoming TV series for the Crime and Investigation Channel; 999 Killer on the Line. I play the murdering farmer Robert Wilson in Series 1. Episode 8: 'Wilson'. Here are a few scenes from the episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMMK9xqpWl0
I was born and brought up in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. I had dreamed of being a professional actor from an early age. At five years old I remember putting my hand up in class telling the teacher ‘When I grow up I am gonna be an actor and live in London’. I performed in many school plays, Scout gang shows and amateur productions and a drama summer school at the Webber Douglas Academy before auditioning for the leading Drama Schools after completing my ‘A’ Levels. I trained at the Drama Centre in Chalk Farm, North London following in the footsteps of Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan and more recently Tom Hardy. My first job after graduating was a touring pantomime of Aladdin playing the Genie of the Lamp and when an actor fell ill the role of the villain Abanazer which I relished with gusto. I then went to perform in touring theatre shows and new plays, devised work and classical theatre genres on the London Fringe whilst continuing acting classes with the late Doreen Cannon (Head of Acting at RADA). One of my favourite fringe experiences was a production of ‘A Play for Jimmy Baldwin’ at the Oval Theatre in London. Not long after leaving drama school I got first television role for the BBC playing a reluctant gang member in a racial drama set on a Hackney Council Estate. I have been lucky to play serious drama parts whilst in between doing more comedic roles.
Recent film roles have included leading roles of Russian Mafia Bosses, a Yorkshire entrepreneur in a Spanish TV series to help viewers learn about English Culture. Being a huge fan of the Hammer Horror Films I was honoured to be asked to moderate and present a commentary for the classic Hammer Film ‘Kiss of the Vampire’ recently. Being cast as the role of GK in ‘Residential’ was a fantastic experience!! We had terrific fun making it and the atmosphere was and is still like an extended family. I was very lucky that GK was not killed off so there is much more scope to learn more about his character in a sequel or as in ‘This is England’ a continuing TV series. I really hope that’ Residential’ gets the recognition it deserves and this leads to bigger more high profile movies. Good roles in movies whilst still doing challenging creative work in the UK is my ambition.
