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!

He’s actually better looking in real life than he is in all these photos

@Kellymumto2

Could it be John Michie - formally of taggart and Corrie? It took me ages to place him when I saw him at the beach last summer - puzzled me for days until I had a eureka moment!!

OMFG IT WAS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not northern and a little young but Matt Bardock? He was in 'The Coroner' - so windswept countryside.

@halesie one of the first TV programmes Alan Cumming did was called The High Life back in the 80s. He played an air steward on 'Air Scotia' and swanned (minced) around the plane looking very pleased with himself. You'll probably find it on YouTube.
