My desert island discs

Lots and lots of pop music from the 60's to present day. I am going on Pop Master...I know far too much about an awful lot of pop music.

Books I have given my friends

I don't get on with literature...I know, I sound like a philistine. I only read Total Film or books/biography's about films, directors & actors...and my friends don't want them!

Chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate biscuits

The best thing I own

Fabian, my rescue dog

More about me

I'm a naturalistic actor with a particular flair for comedy. I thrive most when working on screen, however, I have had a large variety of acting roles spanning all mediums and genres. As well I am an independent filmmaker - I've just released my web series Abnormal about a misery-guts who is struggling to navigate the trials and tribulations of personal development, all the while harbouring a strange secret. I'm also currently editing my first feature Twelfth Day about two disparate sisters who are forced together to complete a treasure hunt left by their late mother. I wrote, produced, directed, edited and acted in both. Later this year I am due to shoot and perform in micro short Potholes which was funded by Exeter Phoenix.
