An actor with over 14 years experience in many performance mediums, Martin is a graduate of the University of Bristol’s prestigious Acting Academy course. He has contributed to local theatre, fringe venues, radio, student/short films, international television, music videos, corporate and murder mystery events.
Highlights have included a role in Bristol Old Vic’s hugely popular staging of Up The Feeder, Down the Mouth and Back Again on Bristol dockside, and the chance to play 5 different characters in an adaptation of the RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby at the QEH Theatre. His portrayal on Tony Blair in a devised play at Bristol Community Festival was also very rewarding. More recently he has played the challenging role of Winston Smith in 1984 and George Tesman in Hedda Gabler.
With a clear and authoritative voice Martin has contributed readings to many Radio 4 documentaries, and has helped out television programme makers by providing guide commentaries on several Natural History films. He is also proud to have had a small speaking part in BAFTA-winning ITV drama The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies (2014).

With over 17 years experience in many performance mediums, I am a graduate of the University of Bristol’s prestigious Acting Academy course, and have contributed to local theatre, fringe venues (including Edinburgh), radio, student/short films, corporate training videos and international television.

Highlights have included the role of Associate 1 in The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies for ITV, and the chance to play 5 different characters in an adaptation of the RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby at the QEH Theatre. My portrayal on Tony Blair in a devised play at Bristol Community Festival was also very rewarding. Other roles include the challenging part of Dracula in a new version of Bram Stoker’s novel at The Bierkeller, and Dr Watson in The Hound of the Baskervilles with Brass Works Theatre.

Roleplay work has been undertaken for the University of Bristol medical exams, corporate training/selection with Roleplay UK and domestic abuse awareness training in The Missed Opportunity with Southside/CURO. I am also on the InterAct Stroke Support reading team at Southmead Hospital.

With a clear and authoritative voice I have contributed readings to many Radio 4 documentaries, and have helped out television programme makers by providing guide commentaries on several Natural History films. I also relished the part of a fire and brimstone-style vicar for German television.
