Help me place this actor??

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.

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.

Ignore that. Just noticed it was the TALL John Mitchie
Cazbym · 04/11/2021 23:26
David Essex. I know he wasn’t blond.
MeredithGreyishblue · 02/11/2021 18:35
He was fit in Taggart too!
MumofSpud · 02/11/2021 15:42
I used to fancy John Michie back in the day when he was in the fabulously awful Albion Market!
Is that who it was?
KitchenDancefloor · 01/11/2021 15:22
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.
70isaLimitNotaTarget · 01/11/2021 14:30
So have we decided it ISN'T John Michie after all ?
Beceause he doesn't fit the original description at all
Zandathepanda · 01/11/2021 14:03
Ooo James has the piercing blue eyes and is the right age. OP can you remember what his teeth were like?
WeAreTheHeroes · 31/10/2021 22:26
I thought the same tonight.

John Michie has a doppelganger. James Frain in Showtrial now in BBC1.
Myusernameisnotmyusernameno · 31/10/2021 15:22
John Mitchie wasn't a hero in the things I've seen him in 😂
70isaLimitNotaTarget · 31/10/2021 12:47
There - ignore the differences , look at the mouth
70isaLimitNotaTarget · 31/10/2021 12:46
Hope this works ....
When Mouse said he looked like an older /more filled out Mark Bonner I did think Christopher Biggins
When I watched LoD , I thought that . It's the top lip
And similar hair and skintone

Just shows what a terrible witness you would be in court 🤣🤣
Blueuggboots · 30/10/2021 22:08
Ha! Sorry, saw you've updated.

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 .
JaneJeffer · 30/10/2021 18:50
Glad to be of assistance
Ducksurprise · 30/10/2021 18:28
He doesn't do it for me normally, but in that picture I felt all funny. Swoon

@wizzler this whole thread has had me sniggering for days - Adam Faith! 😆
IpanemaPeaHen · 30/10/2021 18:10
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.

@suckingonchillidogs your Ashley comment made me laugh out loud. Thank you for making me smiletoday
