Hope to see you there Zombie lovers!!!!!

Hello dear reader, I hope summer is treating you well.

I’m hoping for some nice film or tv work this summer but in the meantime I’m making a few shorts myself.

Here’s the first. Bex and I shot this a couple of days ago. Enjoy…. You’ll want to eat crumpets afterwards….

Warburtons like it, favourited and re-tweeted!!!

On Emmerdale this Friday, May 9th

Hi folks! No updates for ages, but things are starting to pick up. I hope.

I have a brief visit to Emmerdale and The Woolpack on Friday playing an Elvis Stripper to entertain the hen party!!!! Don’t worry, you won’t see too much…. Me in a white jumpsuit is quite enough.
Just a short scene but hopefully memorable.

This isn’t my first Elvis. Far from it….. Here’s a couple of pics from my Live Bait Theatre days and the wonderful Elvis Presley is Alive and Well and living in Sackville by Charlie Rhindress

How does a chunky chap from Yorkshire keep getting roles in the famous white jumpsuit????


Still hobbling….

It’s five weeks since I had the cast removed from my broken foot and I’m still getting some pain.

I went to see my GP yesterday and he sent me for an X-ray to make sure the bone had consolidated properly.

It still looks broken to me, but the Dr at the fracture clinic says it’s over 50% mended so it’s fine.

People tell me this is a Wayne Rooney injury, but I don’t see me pulling on an England strip for a while yet!

I have my foot back!!!

I had the cast removed from my foot yesterday after 6 weeks of hobbling around.


It’s wonderful to be free of the cast, even though my foot still feels tender. I’ll be walking with a crutch or stick for a while yet I think, though I can walk around the house without. Uneven surfaces outdoors are a problem!

Showering without a bag taped over my leg is wonderful and it was a lovely sock-free sleep – I had to wear a sock on the right foot as the cast had a cheese grater surface that woke me up when my feet rubbed.

Now available for acting work again!!! Please!!!!!
