    About me

    30 years professional experience in theatre, film and television. Usually cast in the 45-55 year old age bracket. Film roles include Butterball in the first two Hellraiser movies, Ohnaka in Nightbreed, Derek in The Book of Blood, the Witchfinder General in The Haunting of Margam Castle, and the Senior Hospital Consultant in Starfish with Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt. Currently about to start shooting part 6 of the anthology series Dark Ditties for Amazon Prime, in which I’ve played an investment banker, a mafia grass, a grieving father, a creepy stately home groundsman and an 85 year old lady.

    Theatre includes work at Chichester and The Young Vic and has led to receiving Best Actor Award.

    Versatile, professional and fun to work with.

    Industry Awards

    Actor of the year 1986 at the Key Awards.

    Lifetime Achievement Award from Texas Frightmare.

    International Contribution to the Horror Industry Award from the Russian International Horror Film Festival.
