In '94 I was working as a Personal Trainer to a Film Producer.
One day, instead of training, he bustled me off to a casting.

He told them what a great Actor I was and a Month later,
I was on the set of Judge Dredd with Sylvester Stallone ! ! !


First Day on set, I had a
Groovy Uniform and Big Gun.

I was in Hog Heaven.
I WAS THE LAW.

For a split, wink and you miss it, second I even got to take my helmet off.


FIGHTS WITH THE WARRIOR PRINCES


I BEGAN SWAPING MARTIAL ARTS TUITION
FOR ONE TO ONE ACTING COACHING
WITH A COUPLE OF AMERICAN ACTORS

AND EVEN TRAINED AT THE CITY LIT

In Soldier Soldier I even had Company transport.

I just knew it couldn't last. I'd done:-Judge Dredd, Goldeneye, Richard111, Bugs, Hale and Pace, Soldier Soldier, Adverts & Allsorts.

Then it happened, the Manager my Producer had got me had a breakdown and with the Producer out the country filming, I didn't know how to get another.


That's when I hit on the idea of Qualifiying for the British Equity Stunt Register

I contacted Equity, did 6 disciplines up to instructor level, and put in my papers. The first job I got was being attacked by CGI Pygmies in "The Mummy Returns".
