He retrained from being a computer hacker (white hat) and with two start-up businesses behind him, as a professional actor. After training intensively for over year at a renowned acting school in London and taking numerous other workshops, it all paid off. He very quickly got parts in Short films and got interest for a docu/drama for Discovery. When he got cast in a docu/drama, on UFOs, for the U.S. National Geographic channel, he said, “I loved getting into character to play an MI6 agent during the Cold War period, it really made me think about the suspicion and paranoia that was hanging over every unexplained sighting of unidentified aircraft.”
These days he's booked by many leading brands for TV commercials, TV roles including for the BBC, ITV and films. Oh yes, he does tend to get modelling roles here and there - affluent business man, doctor, dentist, many more father roles than before for some reason, lol.
He is still applying his goal orientated mentality from his youth and from running companies. Zaff says, “what draws me to acting is that I love to tell a story and perform it for others in a way that they will be thinking about for days afterwards”. "Stories are like dreams, they take me back to my childhood."
Some weekends, you'll find him at the airfield piloting a plane, heading for a new airport in the back of beyond. With thirteen years flying experience he feels that he proudly wears the title of adventurer of the skies. Or he’ll be carving up the back roads of your neighbouring County on his motorcycle. What is it about flying and biking amongst actors!?
Unique traits: Britain's Manliest Man - for Orchid Cancer due to support on social media and press coverage I made it into the top 40 from over 1000 to go for the title of Britain's Manliest Man. It is in aid of the cancer charity - Orchid, the one that deals with male cancers. I am wanting to stand for ambassador of their charity for one year. My father died of cancer when I was very young and I want to do this in honour of him. I want to spread the word to all men up and down the UK and the World to check themselves (undercarriage) often.
