    About me

    Mark's skills range from playing aggressive overbearing characters in Horror films to caring, sympathetic father figures in Drama's or Comedies and reluctantly admits to having 35 years experience in Theatre and Film / TV. He is probably best known for Uncle Dave in the Feature Film "Beneath a Neon Tide" and Donald Duck in "The Blue Remembered Hills" stage play but his passion for comedy roles has seen him play several stage comedies including "39 steps" and "Heatstroke" at the Great Hall Theatre Company. Having worked alongside Tom Cruise, Leslie Grantham and been directed by Stanley Kubric, Mark feels that he has been extremely lucky in his career to date.
