About me:

Despite looking and sounding quite distinctive as a character ‘type’ at first glance, David has excelled in and relished playing multiple roles in numerous stage productions, in addition to very diverse characters on screen and audio, demanding wide ranges of physicality and accents. Nominated for Best Supporting Actor, as DCI Jack Reid in 'My Lonely Me', at the 2015 World Music & International Film Festival in Washington DC. Please note: for Casting Directors who have not seen David for some time, he has lost a significant amount of weight and now maintains a more athletic build.
