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!

@Nuffaluff

Most actors are much shorter in real life than you think.
Maybe it really was Greg Wise.

I'd faint if I saw Greg wise on the tube

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

@AppleButter if you mean Alan Rickman that would be extraordinary because he’s sadly dead.

@SchrodingersMouse is it Max Beesley?

Hugo Speer?

There's a very handsome British guy who was in a Richard Curtis style comedy whose name I can't remember but it's bugging me too now!
