About Zaff

He retrained from being a computer hacker (white hat) and with two start-up businesses behind him, to a professional actor. After training intensively for almost two years at a renowned acting school in London and taking numerous other workshops with experts across Europe, including comedy and improv, it all paid off. He very quickly got parts in films and got interest for dramas on Discovery. When he got cast in a 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 at that time”
These days he's booked by many leading brands for TV commercials, TV roles. He made a name for himself as as series regular on the BBC in a highly rated comedy series, aside from other primetime TV gigs on ITV and independent films. Print roles seem to come along often too, in fact he started his career in print for brands like Swinton Insurance.

He is still applying his 'finger in many pies' mentality from his youth and being an entrepreneur. Zaff says, “what draws me to acting is that we all to be told stories and I just feel natural, in front of the camera, performing them”. "Stories are like dreams, they take me back to my childhood." On that note, being an avid fan of spaghetti Westerns as a child, he's found his new calling, he learnt to ride horses in the mid-west, live and breathe horses, got to train and ride with real cowboys out there. A British Cowboy in the making - if there was such a thing!? He baulks, "It became a dream to one day soon set up a horse ranch, and get involved in some movie making wearing spurs and a Stetson", yes he did look up to Clint Eastwood a lot in his youth.

"I've been writing some film scripts which I find very enjoyable and doing more behind the camera work, videographer work and more and one day, I'll be a one person shooter and enjoy the art of the lens, from behind it too, well, why can't you do anything you want", he said with a purposeful air about him.

He also trained in the art of meditation and sound healing and feels many especially creatives can do with this to calm their busy minds and brig inner peace. "I want to do something to help fellow actors, well, just creatives in general)".

Unique traits: This was a contest I went for a few years back, things have moved on a lot since then I nay life, but I feel I this was one of the many ways I made a positive influence on society: "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 across the World to check themselves (undercarriage) often."
