Yesterday I had the absolute privilege, and complete pleasure, to come together with some fellow actors and creators who have worked at the Citizens Theatre over the years, to perform David's adaptation of WILLIAM TELL in a rehearsed reading. Such a wonderfully generous person and practitioner, I like to think he would have been tickled by the performance.
Absolutely loved working with this fantastically welcoming and talented team of people! Out now in the UK, and soon to appear on The Sundance Channel in the USA. British comedy at it's finest!
I'm not generally one to complain about my job, especially given the wonderfully diverse opportunities I've had, but I always think I'd love to play more comedic parts. Especially of the very dry variety. Well it turns out that I'll soon be able to do just that in an hilarious project by a frankly ridiculously talented group of people! More to follow... :)
It's been a while since I've posted. And while the saying is true that life goes on, you sometimes just don't feel like business as usual. It was with an incredibly heavy heart that I had to say goodbye to my gentlest of friends, my companion and confidante.
I rescued him once. Though it was he who chose me all those years ago in Battersea. And he saved me time and again. From myself, Februaries, the occasional heartlessness of London and and and.
He gave me 13 years. Unconditional it was not; my food was his and he helped himself to it. He was a Lurcher after all, Old English for thief, and he stole my heart.

Check out the trailer for the upcoming SS-GB produced by the lovely folks at Sid Gentle. The brilliance we've come to expect from screenwriting duo Purvis & Wade comes to life under the talented direction of Philipp Kadelbach.
I'm incredibly grateful to all those who have believed in me, and that have hired me, over the last 16 years since I left drama school. It is because of them that I am able to present my new showreel, of which I am very proud. You'll find it on the "Video" page; I hope you like it.
I hope you've had a great transition into 2017. Wishing you all the best of health and happiness for the new year! I'm looking forward to seeing what it has in store...and first of all, how this show turned out. "SS-GB", chosen by Den Of Geek as one to watch out for in 2017! Click on the picture
If you're looking for a bit of history in your pre-Xmas viewing (or just lots of bearded men in tights), this is out now. "Six Wives", a concise 3-part BBC programme on Henry VIII's wives, debunking a lot of the myths.
