    About me

    My name is Alan and I am a British actor based in Leeds, UK.

    I have a friendly, story-telling charm to my voice with a small hint of a Northern English accent. I can create a range of powerful characters and I have worked in the Performing Arts industry for over 10 years. Having worked in Theatre, TV, Film and VO I am passionate about bringing characters to life no matter what situation or genre they are needed for.

    I am confident working with clients all over the world from my high spec home studio but I am more than happy to commute if that is to my client's preference. My aim is to bring your projects to life in the smoothest way possible for you. Every production will be of the highest quality and will be delivered within any deadline given.

    I could continue writing words but at this point I would love for you to experience the power I can bring to your projects. Please do have a watch and a listen to my reels and a read of my reviews on my website and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon, until then! Enjoy The Show!
