Hello folks! I hope you’ve all had a great start to 2018!
Mine has been (generally) a good one and I had a significant birthday as well, so it’s been a month of celebration. Thank you to all the old friends who shared my birthday, it was really lovely to re-connect with people from all the different periods of my life – school, work, Canada, film, TV… Magical.
My episode of Kay Mellor’s GIRLFRIENDS aired (I’m in Episode 3 if you want to catch it on ITV Hub here). Nice scene with Miranda Richardson and Zoë Wannamaker. I’m really enjoying this series, what a great writer Kay Mellor is!
I was on Radio Sheffield yesterday – a nice interview about First Loves with Rony Robinson – I’ve put the clip on my Bandcamp site to make it easier to listen to my bit…
Right, I’m off to enjoy this last day of January, have fun and be kind!
Christmas is almost here!
We’ve had the first dusting of snow on the Sheffield hills, my cards are sent, presents mostly bought, now I’m making lists for food shopping for the big day.
I’ve also been busy on the business side, getting new actor headshot pics and making a new video to share with you, so lots to tell you about in this update….
I usually record a video each Christmas of me reading A VISIT FROM ST. NICHOLAS (‘Twas the night…). I used to read it to my children on Christmas eve in the pre-divorce days, but I never see them to read it now, so I started recording it for them.
This year I decided to record an audio version for them and put a bit more into the production side, with sound effects and such. I’m very pleased with the results.
I’ve put it on YouTube with some family photos and videos under the audio, here it is….
If you’d like the original audio version in it’s full glory, it’s here to listen or download…. or buy if you wish to send me money.
I’m going to be in your house in January!
Earlier this year I recorded a lovely episode of GIRLFRIENDS, Kay Mellor’s new drama for ITV. A couple of nice scenes with Miranda Richardson and Zoë Wanamaker. The series begins Weds January 3rd. I’m in Episode 3. It’s a lovely cast, please watch.
Here’s some of the new pics of the new slimmer me (over 80lbs lost now) – and with new glasses too. I’m hoping the new slimmer look leads to more TV work as directors move me from the obese to hunky casting category 😁
And here’s a final Christmassy treat for you, the firstYorkshire Teabaggersvideo. Our parody take on one of the most popular of Christmas songs.
What a lot of Christmas goodies eh?
So, now I’ve unloaded my sack on you, I will bid you a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year.
Stay warm, stay safe, help others, spread the love and be good to yourself.
We’re in to the final 3 episodes of BROKEN now.
And I’m very happy to be in all of the last 3.
It’s not a huge role, the final episode features me the most, but it was a lovely job with fantastic people. And I played one of Sean Bean’s brothers!
It’s been getting great reviews, please take time to watch if you can.
Had a great weekend, celebrating Father’s Day with my eldest son, Benjamin. So sad to take him home, but I’m really looking forward to his next visit.
Have a super week! I’ll be back to nag you about episode 5 next week!
Hello there!!!! April has suddenly turned cold, we’ve had snow this week! Luckily the weather was warmer last week when my son Benjamin helped me make a new video for a song I originally recorded 4 years ago.
I’d never been happy with the original video. I shot it on my iPhone and I didn’t have playback of the song to sync with so I guessed the audio speed when I shot the video…. which made editing very difficult .
So I’ve been wanting to make a new video for some time and I recorded a new audio track for it as well, so what we have below is a whole new version.
That’s the new above…. below is the old version from 2013….
Hope you like one of them at least….
Cheers and stay warm. Especially on’t moors!
I trust Christmas was good to you and that 2017 has been a happy one for you so far. Look at this, almost Valentine’s Day and it’s my first update of the year… naughty Dave.
Things are good here, I had a most enjoyable Christmas with family and friends and then another birthday rolled around a couple of weeks ago…
My birthday was quickly followed by my son Benjamin reaching his 15th… He’s a pretty amazing young man and makes me very proud.
Glad to say BBC is showing trailers for upcoming drama series and Jimmy McGovern’s BROKEN, starring Sean Bean (and me as one of his brothers), is in the list. As soon as I have dates I will post it here.
In the meantime, The Yorkshire Teabaggershave been busy in the rehearsal studio with a few gigs recently and more to come.
We made this video during our rehearsal this week, consider it our Valetine to the women of Yorkshire….
Follow us on Facebook.
And I’m very happy to share that I have a new pair of Doc’s…. picked up at a decent price on eBay, lightly used. Love ’em!
So, that’s it for now. Wishing you as much love as you can handle for Feb 14th!
