Where is home?


Three reasons you love where you live?

It’s busy, diverse and always something to do.



What do you do for a living?

I’m an actor, currently working in musical theatre and I love it.

A day in the life of you?

At the moment I’m touring around the country with the Rocky horror show playing Dr Frank n Furter.

Any recent, ongoing or upcoming projects or achievements we should know about?

Playing Dr Frank n Furter is such a huge achievement for me. It’s got to be one of the best roles I have played so far in my career. It’s such an iconic role and I’m loving every minute of it.

What does downtime mean to you?

Spending time with my family. I do love a Netflix series though!



What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I always wanted to be an actor, especially in theatre – there’s nothing like performing to a live crowd.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

Life is not a straight line. It throws obstacles at you but if want to really do something in life and you work hard for it, you can always achieve it. One way or another.

What is your greatest fear?

Ohh I have thought of this one a lot… it would be being lonely.



What is top of your bucket list?

Travel more! I would love to see more of this world, a visit to Japan is definitely up there.

What is your most treasured possession?

Well, I love motorcycles and I currently own three, so maybe it’s them!

What does the weekend mean to you?

Going home, when I have been touring around the country. There is nothing like being in your own bed.

A memorable holiday?

I visited Las Vegas just before Covid hit. I loved it. There is so much to do and see there. I’m definitely planning on going again next year.

Who would be your top three dinner guests?

Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke and the Queen.

The last place you ate?

Gaucho, they do great steak!

The last book you read?

‘Looking Good Dead’ by Peter James – Love a thriller novel.

The last thing you listened to?

Sam Cooke live at the Copacabana! And Sarah Vaughan singing ‘Misty’.

The last thing you watched?

BBC 3 People Just Do Nothing. It’s very funny.

Your three luxe things in life?

Going out for dinner, going for a ride on the motorcycle and travelling abroad.
