About me:

  • Before becoming an actor I worked as a TV presenter and reporter for ITV in the Channel Islands. I spent my first couple of months reading children's birthday greetings with a puppet called Oscar Puffin, a less cuddly and more stroppy version of Gordon the Gopher.
  • My first starring role was as the front end of the Panto Horse in Cinderella aged 13, but unfortunately I ended up in A&E with a broken shoulder.
