Help me place this actor??
859

SchrodingersMouse · 28/10/2021 19:21

I saw him on a train. Can’t for the life of me remember who he is.

He’s a British tv actor, probably in his 50s or early 60s. Grey hair, used to be blonde. Piercing blue eyes. Often plays a hero/ love interest type role.

a bit like Greg wise but shorter!

I feel sure he was in a Sunday night drama or a soap or something but I can’t find him online! It’s driving me mad!

We've had a few nominations for this to go into Classics so we're going to move it there now.

@SchrodingersMouse

Aaargh! He’s definitely the same category as most of these people. But not one of them!

I have an image in my mind of him standing in front of a northern English rural backdrop. I’ve searched through the emmerdale cast abs he’s not one of them

Ooh there was a soap filming in Clacton, maybe he was coming back from filming. No idea how close Clacton/Margate are mind. And possibly a different train line.

David Essex. I know he wasn’t blond.

Ignore that. Just noticed it was the TALL John Mitchie Confused

I used to fancy John Michie back in the day when he was in the fabulously awful Albion Market!
Is that who it was?

I thought of this thread whilst watching Showtrial too.

'Which of the reasonably attractive middle-aged British actors might this be?'

I thought it was John Mitchie until I put my glasses on.

I spend half of every programme on IMDb working out where I recognise the actors from.

I wonder if Shaun Evans would consider being the next Dr Who ?
In that hand-outstretched posed it's very "Come and join me in the TARDIS "


(My Dream Dr Who is David Morrissey but DH says he cannot be . Some Time&Space Consortium would prevent it , )


But ..............only in his Liverpool accent .

IT'S JOHN MICHIE!! But let's have another picture of Shaun Evans.

He doesn't do it for me normally, but in that picture I felt all funny. Swoon

Such a funny thread. Mumsnet at its best.

I’m glad you’ve got a name now and I’m still smiling that someone suggested Alan Rickman, if only! Still sad he’s gone.
