Me and some of my colleagues on a recent film shoot for an advert for a famous satellite channel. I'm the one kneeling down on the left with the blue with white striped tracky bottoms.

Me as the mascot and water boy at a recent Huddersfield URFC match played in memory of one of their players Barry (Barry White) Prosser. It was day to remember not least because the rugby ground that the match was originally planned to be played on had a corpse found on it that morning so the team had to change venues at the last minute and the poor guy lying on the floor had what I think was his leg broken during the game... Ouch!

A stunt film:

Other work

Death at a Funeral:
I appeared in this film, directed by Frank Oz as the double for the lead character.

Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights:
I appeared in an opening scene with 6 other dwarfs.  We arrived at the nightclub by coach, intoxicated, and singing football songs.  The bouncers attempted to prevent our entry to the club, and so we forced our way in.  Once in, we vandalised the fruit machine, and beat up the bouncers.

Busted Christmas Video: 
I was one of 3 elves who challenged the Busted boy’s attempted entry to the grotto (where Santa – Brian Capron aka Richard Hillman from Coronation Street – gave them clues to solve).

Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone:
This was as one of many goblins in the scene at the Gringotts Bank.

Pat Short’s Christmas Video: 
The sketch was of Pat complaining about being killed by midges in the summer.  I was one of 3 “midgets”, who stalked him, and I then shot him with a rifle.  This was filmed in Co Limerick, Eire, during the summer of 2003.

Virgin Radio – Pete & Geoff: 
I was part of 2 sponsored competitions.  The first was a driver in a car chase in go-carts (a scaled down car chase from the film “The Italian Job”), the second was as a “Lumpy Humpa” (based on Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory’s Oompa Loompas) singing riddles.

I have done 5 consecutive Pantomime seasons starting in 2001 with my first Pantomime at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin, 2002 Ashcroft Theatre in East Croydon, 2003 Assembly Halls in Royal Tunbridge Wells, 2004 Wycombe Swan in High Wycombe and last season at the Grand Theatre in Swansea where I had the role of Head Dwarf (Skipper), which required me to sing solo’s during the show.

I have worked at the Downloaded music festival, and have recently returned from The Global Gathering in Stratford Upon Avon where my roles included walkabouts in a variety of costumes and stage shows in the evenings.

Other Work: 
have considerable experience in other roles including as Doorman (Bouncer) – working alongside one of a more traditional stature!,  “Meet & Greet” – at the launch/promotion  of nightclubs, “Red Devilling”, Stag Weekends and Leaflet Distribution.  My costumes include Black Tie/ Dinner Jacket,  Oompa Loompa, Leprechaun, and Red Devil.
