THEN to NOW> I Started as a child actor in the early 80s, My first job was when I was about 9 yrs old on a Star Wars Toy Commercial. (Palitoy)
I've Worked with all kinds of People/ Characters/ Faces in Theatre, TV and Film, Music and beyond, and have been lucky enough to have travelled extensively : 53 countries 177 cities last count, still loads to see and do...
As an Actor Nowadays- Playing age is usually cast within 30 - 40... I am the Boyfriend/ Husband/ Father/ the Son, The Guy in the suit, the Psychopath , the office worker, the Soldier (Tarzan 2016), the Lawyer or Reporter (Would like to do a news reporter/correspondent btw). Also, am The 'normal' bloke and/or secret gay Boyfriend. (Casualty 2012) I also play the Posh Bloke or Army Guy in a Period Piece (sometimes), I Like playing Gritty Drama (The Normal Heart) with a great script (essential), or Subtle/ Dry/ Dead-pan Comedy/ Humour/ Favourite (more comedy jobs please) ). Im good at keeping a straight face (btw). Really enjoy/ I have wonder about it; Science Fiction Genre. Playing Action where possible (big kid/ Fight, military & stage training). Particularly like (and excellent casting on your end) when cast playing 'the Strange' i.e; odd, the Vampire, Demons & Aliens for some reason... with backstories of outcasts that can give the character sympathy. Generally 'unhinged' Villains (Yes Please), but also creating these complex characters with a TRUTH behind the eyes and intention. Why? because they're Fun to play and It's more interesting (all round) in the quest of the Human Experience...isn't it? I like watching people and observing their processes on the street. btw I am aware I am not my thoughts...
Voices for games and Docu voice overs are a Pleasure...as are Musicals on Stage & Film! (see cv).
Acting is what I do, am qualified in and have done since a Child. I enjoy the Work, the Rehearsals, the Process, the People and of course the Journey and sometimes even the finished product. (not so much the unemployment!). After so many years I would love to get a decent 'Break' but hey wouldn't we all :) just working regularly in this business I consider a success.

Television (Drama) Actor Producer Kenith Trodd was part of a 1984 team brought together to study how the BBC should respond to Channel Four's pioneering efforts in making films for both television and theatrical release. The result was a transition from the earlier concept of studio-made plays, such as "Play for Today" and the introduction of the new BBC anthology film series, "Screen One" and "Screen Two," with Trodd's supervision of the initial group of titles in 1985.
