Hi there, and thank you for visiting.  This site is designed for professional enquiries, fanbase updates and an overall history, both career and biographical.  Fuller details are all available by clicking on any of the links above.

SOME BRIEF FACTS

Born in Selkirk, Scotland, December 8th 1948, he left school aged 15 with no qualifications whatsoever.  After working for CH Bernard & Sons (Naval Tailors) - during which time he sang briefly with a 'semi-pro' rock band, had a go at 'folk singing', and appeared with The Randolph Players and Dunfermline Light Opera - he successfully auditioned for The Royal Scottish Acadamy of Music & Drama and subsequently trained for 3 years, between 1966-69.

Probably best known as 'Kirk St. Moritz' in 'Dear John' by John Sullivan, other high profile moments have come through his playing of a 'Fonz'-type character in the cult Pepsi-Cola commercials which led to a hit record in 1977 "Lipsmakin' Rock'n'Rollin", 'Andy Evol' the disc-jockey in 'Agony' with Maureen Lipman and, more recently, in the controversial episode  of 'Taggart' - 'Do or Die' as Sgt. Bill Kent.  He also has a long association with 'The Rocky Horror Show' playing 'Frank-n-Furter' over a thousand times between 1975 and 1994.
