HELLO! NICE OF YOU TO VISIT. I'M AN ACTOR and VOICE-OVER ARTIST, WORKING IN THE UK.Updated 12th March 2013
Very glad to have been nominated for the BAFTA for best performer in the 2013 BAFTA GAMES Awards last week. Splendid evening at The London Hilton Hotel in Park Lane. Just sorry not to have won the award, which would have been quite a nice confirmation that there is still life yet in this 58 year old actor...however a nomination is quite an honour too, so that's fine. Sorry too though for Dan Pinchbeck, Jessica Curry and Robert Briscoe, the brilliant creators of Dear Esther, who were all also individually nominated, but beaten by the more high-financed independent and mainline conventional games. We should all feel very proud of getting so far with a small but exquisite game that was a poem in sound and images, where no one dies, is diced, sliced or falls from a great height, where no blood explodes across the screen, where no points are scored, where the words heard contain no expletives, and where a human mystery is investigated and conclusions are, not so much drawn, as left beguilingly open...for the gaming community to ponder further when they have turned off their screens and retired.
Previewing The Winslow Boy at The Old Vic Theatre directed by Lindsey Posner. I, in my usual guise these days of understudy to the leading-man or men, am covering the great and delightful Henry Goodman as Arthur Winslow and the dynamic and charismatic Peter Sullivan as Sir Robert Morton, both masters of their craft. It looks beautiful and the acting is of a very high standard....hope the public enjoy this very popular Terence Rattigan revival.
