He's currently playing Father Melia in 'Lilies';
Born 1974, he'd always wanted to be an actor, and wrote his first play at the age of 16, which the Playhouse staged. He then continued to direct and write for the playhouse, and produced plays through his own theatre company. All before he was 20. He was cast in 'Backbeat' at the age of 19, and has been acting [and writing] ever since, earning award nominations along the way.
