    About me

    If Andrew wasn't my middle name, creativity would be. I'm a writer, artist, artists' model, composer and, yes, actor. I have, of course, narrated my latest book, Thirteen, written under the pen-name Tabitha Hergest, but I'm in my proper element telling stories through the actions of others. I genuinely love other people because they have their own struggles and are usually just trying to do the best they can for themselves and others, and so it is with that compassion that I best portray my characters. I like to become them, to feel as they feel, to see the world as they do, to embody their thoughts and motivations. That, to me, is the essence of great acting and, along with interactions with other characters, makes for a great performance.

    Acting experience

    First acted in primary school as Gladstone and, in the same play, as Winston Churchill. The hair-piece made from an old football and some cotton wool brought the house down.

    Did some amateur dramatics in the 1990s, where we did Bad Day at Black Frog Creek. I was the spitoon.

    In 2003 I was an interviewee/audience member for BBC's Battle of the Books series, and in 2007 I was one of the actors in a trailer for a programme about BDSM and strange sexual practices, whose name escapes me.

    2019 I was a rioter in the film Election Night, with IMDb credit

    2019 also a small part in a production with the working title of Fantasist, by Romesh Ranganathan's production company, Ranga Bee.

    2019 Filmed as part of a modern adaptation of a Shakespearean production as expert on Hamlet.
