I am an actor looking for Feature Film work, TV, Theatre, Radio and commercials.
I am a professional actor with over twenty years experience, and in 1997 I made my London West End debut in HURLY BURLY starring Mark Benton, Andy Serkis, David Tennant and Rupert Graves.
I have been in many Theatre and TV productions and since 2005 I have appeared in 18 feature films either playing one of the lead roles or smaller character parts.
Feature films include: GREETINGS directed by Ken Colley, BLOODMYTH, TEN DEAD MEN, THE FIRM directed by Nick Love, DARK SECRETS, ON THE ROPES, VENDETTA starring Danny Dyer, DEATH (aka AFTER DEATH) starring opposite Leslie Phillips, and THE LANDLORD which was shot in Bristol.
Talking of Bristol in 2013 Ben appeared in his own stage adaptation of THE BEGUILED at THE BRISTOL BIER KELLER. The play was based on the novel by Thomas Cullinan which was also a movie starring CLINT EASTWOOD.
Trivia: Amongst other things I play The Taxi Driver in the Banned X Box 360 advert called ‘Stand Off’ and I appear as myself on the special features of EDDIE IZZARD’S ‘SEXIE’ DVD.
At present BEN can be contacted directly or via c/o SPOTLIGHT and mainly considers Feature Film roles but will consider ‘interesting’ shorts.
Although Ben is no longer based in Bristol he will consider projects filming in Bristol as he does have a place to stay.
