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!

John Michie isn't grey and wasn't previously blond 🤷‍♀️

Might suggest MN Towers change the thread title to "Please identify this person I saw but I'm going to completely mislead you about" Wink

@butterpuffed

Are you sure it's him ? You said 5' 5" , he's 6 foot !

I’m started to think the OP might have actually just seen an entirely non famous chap on her train because the description given really doesn’t match the answer. I mean John Michie can’t have shrunk a foot, developed a new accent, had surgery to fill in his cleft chin and changed eye colour can he?

@hotmeatymilk

Oh thank god. But OP, I hope you’re never called on as a witness to a crime and have to give a description of the suspect…

🤣🤣🤣 he would have been the last person I'd have thought of!

here is an almost infinite amount of slightly attractive middle aged men who grace our TVs.

What a damning indictment of British celebs Grin

Thank you @SchrodingersMouse for keeping us all entertained!!

I'm so pleased you've found him. I think it was his daughter who died from dodgy drugs at a festival. A young girl if I remember correctly.

I think I may have never actually seen him n anything, just seen him in photos. Maybe I thought he was northern because of Corrie. I did say ‘soft northern’ … in my defence

Poor John Michie lost his daughter didn’t he? Really sad.
Glad you finally found who he is, OP.
