Steps Reunion

The 39 Steps

That is correct, after 7-years away from the role, I will be reprising the lead as the stiff upper lipped, Richard Hannay, in the Hitchcock spoofed “The 39 Steps”.

It is slated for release in June 2019 at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House in Newcastle and I cannot wait to begin rehearsals.

“This is Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award winning stage adaptation, based on John Buchan’s gripping whodunit – memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 – is now in its fourth year at the Criterion Theatre in the West End.

Nothing has been cut from this hilarious version of Britain’s most spell-binding thriller – legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale at the London Palladium!

With four actors playing a minimum of one hundred and thirty-nine roles, it’s the most astonishing theatrical tour de force of the year.”

My Career in Transition

So I landed myself a feature film role, in a movie titled ‘Tansition’.

I’m to play a character called Mark who is very much in love with his new fiancé, when I meet an untimely demise, but alas, I return from the dead – in ghost form?

I don’t know if I am a ghost but I do know I don’t have as much screen time as Patrick Swayze did in ‘Ghost’… or the abs.

Hopefully though it’s the start of bigger and better things.

 

I’m Back!

‘Terminator Genysis’

So like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new Terminator movie “I’m back!”

I’ve been away from the acting world for a little while but I have returned and hungry to work again.

I have a few potential projects in the pipeline and of course will keep you all informed on my progress.

As always I thank you for your support and for now it’s “Hasta la vista baby”.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year 2013

Wishing everyone that has supported and followed me thus far a very happy new year and hoping 2013 brings you everything you deserve!

In February of this new year I have been cast in a short film called ‘Captor’ in which I play a man held captive and being forced through the snowy woods of Germany.

Well hopefully Germany, with 3 locations in mind, including Scotland I am hoping the director picks Germany for the back drop to this short calling card which will be entered into festivals and competitions throughout 2013.

Will keep you posted.

All the best.

Searching For Doctor Branovic

‘Searching For Doctor Branovic’ Theatrical Poster

Come and support me in my next outing as the recovering suicidal Joe Tyler in David Tristram’s comedy ‘Searching For Doctor Branovic’, sequel to the hilarious ‘Forget-Me-Knot’.

It will be performed for 3 days at The Customs House in South Shields starting Monday 21st February 2011.

“Emma Tyler mourns the sudden and unexpected death of her husband, Joe.

But all is not as it seems and, deep in the bowels of a nearby hospital, something stirs.

Enter Detective Inspector Monroe – a man who knows a thing or two about the unexpected. Last memorably seen in “Forget-Me-Knot”, the grumpy, beleaguered detective soon finds himself right in the middle of another mystery which threatens to unhinge his sanity.

How did Joe manage to walk out of his own post-mortem? Where is the mysterious Doctor Branovic? How did the toaster get dented on both sides? Why has Monroe got a hole in his right hand? And, most crucially of all, does Emma Tyler really own a cat?

Throughout this highly unusual romp, the audience often know far more than the characters. But can they possibly see what’s coming?”

Forget-Me-Knot

‘Forget-Me-Knot’ Program Cover

Come and support me in my next outing as the amnesiac Robert Zeinfeld in David Tristram’s comedy ‘Forget-Me-Knot’.

It will be performed for 3 days at The Customs House in South Shields starting Monday 27th September 2010.

“Imagine the plight of poor Robert Zeinfeld. Found wandering the streets at 4am, without even the slightest clue how he got there. Total amnesia! Only a bruised head and a suspicious policeman for company. Perhaps this Zeinfeld character is not what he seems. Perhaps he’s got something to hide. Perhaps he hasn’t lost his memory at all?

The trouble is, the deeper the policeman digs, the more confused he gets, until he finds himself wrestling a plot with more twists and turns than a buckled slinky.”
