About Vander

Scottish from Glasgow, speaking with a Glasgow or British upper RP accent.


"Acting"
Together I’ve worked on around 70 productions, from since 2013 as lead or recurring for film and tv.

In 2017 I played my first 1st starring role for cinema, which had a international release across China and India on Dec 2018. The film is called “First Time”.

A few achieved 1st place for the series of the year in China, such as; "Special Forces Anti Terror" 2017, and "Peace Keeping Infantry Battalion," 2018, which gained 1 billion views in its first two weeks. I played the lead villain Kabba / Jessie for approx 100 scenes over fourteen episodes, and Colonel Victor for about five episodes.

One of my favorite roles for playing a lead as, was the hero Captain Aik, in the TV series "Attack Force" for about 80 scenes over twelve episodes, and also Henry for five or so episodes in the series "Detective Kechen." Another favorite was playing Master Phillip for several episodes in the Hong Kong martial arts series "Duel at the Supreme Gate."

In 2014 I had my first TV lead role for the series "Kejairen," at that time was the highest budgeted tv series in China. I played the villain, commander Tom for around 100 scenes over approx fourteen episodes.

I also directed and screenwrote a few shorts that were shown on China’s main tv film channel "CCTV 6" in 2013, then went onto direct a Chinese feature film in 2016 "Master Mi-Zun."

My soft-sci-fi thriller, an artistic screenplay, has been funded by the Chinese gov and been offered investment by half a dozen production companies. The sequel to my international release "First Time" has also been backed.

I have also been featured in leading Chinese newspapers such as; "Fenghuang News"

"Stunts"
I enjoy doing stunts work and spent a few months with the Jackie Chan stunt team. I specialize in combat from unarmed fighting to swords and firearms, holding the equivalent of a 7th degree black belt with advanced weapons handling (firearms). My stunt work includes Hollywood, British, and Chinese productions such as; "Outcast" and Jackie Chan's "Dragon Blade."

I've written a series of military sci-fi novels under a nom de plume, based upon some of my screenplays.


"Associate Professor"
I give seminars on teacher training, drama, and creative / screenwriting at Beijing Foreign Studies University, China's leading English related studies university. I was hired by the BFSU, and Uniplus (Chinese government, and Ministry of Education) "education reform program" to teach creative, analytical, critical thinking (basically the brain's right hemisphere) as well as change the way English and general teaching methods are taught. Currently, I have taught several hundred leading English experts and senior high school teachers.
