About Me

I'm a confident and easy going chap, looking for acting/extra opportunities. I was introduced in to working as an extra through Little Woodham 17th Century living history village, where I am the resident blacksmith entertaining visitors. I have worked as an extra for a number of companies including BBC (Dr Who), Channel 5, WAGTV and a number of independent film companies. The longest speaking part I've had so far was a 10 min. piece to camera for a Canadian film company whilst demonstrating the skills of a 17C blacksmith. As well as blacksmithing I have range of other skills including horse riding, flying (I hold a full commercial pilot license)and have competed at competition level aerobatics.
I am happy to play any role and I'm eager to broaden my skills.
