Richard is the quintessential English gentleman; at home playing characters with a calm intelligence or authority, with charm and a dash of wry humour bubbling away beneath the surface.
Originally from South Yorkshire, Richard read Music at Bristol University before training as an actor at Drama Studio London, graduating in 2006. He also holds a Masters degree in Shakespeare and Theatre from Birmingham University and the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford Upon Avon.
He has worked extensively in regional and West End Theatre, including the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Chichester Festival Theatre, and the Royal Exchange, Manchester. He also spent many years working as an Actor Musician on a wide variety of productions, from family theatre to comedy, classical theatre and musicals.
As a jobbing actor in London for so many years Richard has also worked variously in office temping, luxury retail, promotions, and was assistant manager of a North London cocktail bar for one glorious summer. He is now mostly at home attending to the whims of a belligerent toddler but can still mix an excellent Martini.
