Hello! Writing a bio of myself is pretty much my worst nightmare but here goes…
So I currently find myself working and living in the North West with the ever expanding clan of Finnegan’s, having recently added a dog to the three boys and two cats my wife Ariana and I are attempting to rear! The whole family love it up here, it’s a beautiful place to grow up and giving them some stability was important to me as I moved around a lot in my earlier years. Jobs took my parents from Denmark where I was born, to Yugoslavia and New York along the way, but they always wanted to return to the UK eventually and after a few moves around the country we settled near Brighton.
I trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, graduating with honours in the spring of 2001 and have been working as an actor ever since, with a few brief pit stops as an estate agent, publican, gardener, promo manager, rigger and painter and decorator… it’s a tough business!
I joined Hollyoaks at the back end of 2015 on an initial 6 month contract so to still be there now and the character to have been such a success is something I’m still surprised by and grateful for, anyone who saw my face on winning Best Actor at the 2019 Soap awards will know exactly what I’m talking about!
I spend my time outside the show writing (watch this space), trying to play golf and watching sport (I’m a big Spurs & St Mirren & Scotland Fan) and acting as a chauffeur / line cook/ lego fixer & cocktail maker to the rest of the family!
Well that wasn’t so hard after all! Gx.
