    About me

    **contact removed**

    I'm a reliable, punctual and very professional actor, stand-in and supporting artist who has now committed to an acting career full time having received plenty of positive feedback from productions I've worked on since starting out in April 2017.

    My previous work as a stand-up comedian, football commentator and journalist with presenting experience has given me an ease in front of the camera and a professional pride in my performance, however small, to help the director/AD/continuity department achieve the best work possible.

    I played David Hepworth in Bohemian Rhapsody and have credits in the film Born A King and Sky Atlantic's drama Patrick Melrose (I was also Benedict Cumberbatch's hand double in this project and have since worked as his double) as well as having successfully auditioned for a role in an online advert for Total Jobs.

    Television experience

    Have worked for 2 years as a supporting artist during which time I've had numerous walk on and featured roles.

    Also have some presenting experience from my role as an entertainment journalist and football commentator.

    Briefly worked as a catalogue model when I was 18. Have recently worked as a hand model.

    Acting experience

    I played David Hepworth in Bohemian Rhapsody. I also have acting credits for small roles as a hotel porter in Born A King and Archibald Bazalgette in Sky Atlantic drama Patrick Melrose. I was also Benedict Cumberbatch's hand and arm double in this project (I took all his drugs for him!)

    Interesting Past Experiences

    I have a gamut of stories from my 25 years as a journalist, covering terrorist bombings, riots, significant events and interviewing a wide range of notable people.
