Feature Film: Earlier last year I had the great fortune to work on Aardman Animation’s new ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’. I can be heard playing 10 characters in the big screen adaptation of it’s enormously popular CBBC TV Series. It’s now available to buy on DVD and BLURAY …

I play the Maitre ‘D’ (see below), both Hair Stylists (bottom right), the Angry Panto Horse Men, the Golfer and a host of Hospital characters.

Returning to ‘Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas’, Shaun’s very first 30 minute Christmas Special for a moment. Great news that the short film won an INTERNATIONAL EMMY KIDS AWARD in 2017!

Television Special: Following quickly on from ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’, I found myself saying the wonderful words “I’ve worked with Aardman again!” This time on ‘Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas’, Shaun’s very first 30 minute Christmas Special.

I play Hector the head llama of a rather destructive trio of llamas!! It’s become a bit of Christmas tradition for the half hour special to be transmitted over the festive period.

‘The Farmer’s Llamas’ was also chosen to feature on the front cover of the Christmas Radio Times!!

Radio Drama: I play Brother Tuck in this audio re-imagining of the Robin Hood tale in ‘Hood’ for BBC Audio Drama Award winners Spiteful Puppet. Starring Lee Ingleby (Inspector George Gently, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). As well as Brother Tuck, I can be heard voicing many other characters across the adventures..

After winning the BBC Audio Drama Awards in 2015, Spiteful Puppet we’re once again nominated for the 2016 awards (for the third consecutive year!) This time for ‘Hood - King’s Command’. It wasn’t to be this time around, but what an amazing achievement to grab a hat-trick of nominations in a very competitive competition.

Audio Drama: I had the great thrill to be back in the Big Finish Productions studios to record a terrific new audio adventure called 'THE SONTARAN ORDEAL', featuring Classic Doctors (Paul McGann on this occasion) with monsters from the new series of ‘Doctor Who’.

It is with much delight that I can announce that I will be playing a SONTARAN called Ensign Stipe (more character details to come!).

An excellent cast, including Christopher Ryan, the first actor to portray a Sontaran in the new 'Doctor Who' era, the ageless Josette Simon from ‘Blake’s 7’ and Dan Starkey who plays the current clone batch of Sontarans on ‘Doctor Who’.

Radio Drama: After joining the cast of 'The Archers' to play Keith Horrobin, unfortunately it appears that he is still languishing in prison!

After being found guilty of arson and corruption during the controversial ‘Farmageddon’ storyline culminating in him setting David and Ruth Archer’s barn alight, Keith was also featured in Series 4 of ‘The Archers’ spin-off show ‘Ambridge Extra’ which followed him into prison itself!

I often wonder what Keith’s been up to while he’s been enjoying his time at Her Majesty’s pleasure. Maybe he’s picked up some new skills that will be useful for when he gets out. He'll probably want to stay clear of the motor trade as his money troubles were a consequence of that. We will see …

I look forward to heading back to Ambridge at some point and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for him once his liberty is restored! LISTEN & WATCH on the site here.

Feature Film: In 2016 Aardman Animation’s ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’ in which I voiced 10 characters, was nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Film Award in the Best Animated Feature category. However the film eventually lost out to Disney/Pixar’s ‘INSIDE OUT’ across all three major film awards!!

Richard Starzak and Mark Burton wrote and directed the film. It made over £76 million worldwide at the box office and was universally praised by critics, who called it "fun, absurd, and endearingly inventive."     

It holds an approval rating of 99% on Rotten Tomatoes and is one of the highest rated animated films on the website.

The film went on to be nominated for 50 awards, winning 8, including the prestigious Toronto Film Critics Association Award for Best Animated Film. So proud to have been a part of it!
