Late 2016 I enjoyed very much studying on a "Kevin Spacey" Teaches Acting can you not enjoy learning from a Pro like him.

I started out as an extra, but quickly went on to my first speaking role in .. "Our friends in the North" with Daniel Craig Christopher Eccleston Hugh Bonneville and more..(TV series)

My first acting part was in a music video with "Jimmy Nail" (Country boy)

Last year I was booked as "Gerard Butlers" hand double, on his, and Gary Oldman's, new movie "Hunter Killer" where my Magician skills were perform a trick to camera.I did 8 day's on that...(Aug 2016) I loved the pressure that it brought, and even managed to teach Gerard how to do it too ....mind you, he was so determined, I think he would have found a way himself -:)

Recently I also spent five day's on Pierce Brosnan's new movie..Final Score (Sept2016) and then on to a short movie for Chanel 4 ,then on to "Rise of the Footsoldier"& a TV ad for Paddy Power playing a loud football fan.
I have been in many movies as an extra inc..."Notting hill" (Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts..featured) "Fierce Creatures" John Cleese & Jamie Lee Curtis (Featured) "First Knight" (Richard Gere & Sean Connery) ....and TV shows inc "Eastenders" & "Morse" I also took part in "Kevin Wateley's" TV drama.."Gobble" (1997) "Sleepy Hollow" (Johnny Depp)" Mission Impossible" (Tom Cruise)

Being part of the World Famous "Barron Knights" Comedy group and many well known recording artists as a Drummer, I gained valuable TV experience as we did many many shows all over the world, so I am very confident with people, camera's and any situation I am put in. and have a Comedic talents come in handy too -:)

A total pro in every sense of the word...versatile & reliable!

I can also work minus glasses too ..."I only need them to see"! Lol

Thanx folks
