Richard is a classically trained actor and has worked extensively in theatre, television and film.
He was part of a long, well publicised list of actors who were under consideration for the lead role of Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit. Richard also played one of the leads alongside Pauline Quirke in the feature film “The Perfect Burger” with first time film Director Todd Carty.
On TV, work has included Channel 4’s Meet the Parents, Not Going Out with comedian Lee Mack, and Spy on Sky 1. Richard has just completed filming the role of Dr Owen McKenna in Eastenders, which aired on Friday 1st April 2016.
Richard is a prolific voice over artist and work ranges from TV and radio campaigns for Saab and Aer Lingus, to voicing the subsidiary characters in Disney’s A Christmas Carol.
Before training as an actor Richard graduated in Estate Management and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor. He worked in commercial property investment in both the City and the West End, and still fancies himself as a small time property developer.
Richard is an experienced personal coach and helps people to maximise their potential. His approach is reactive, flexible and completely individual, building relationships based on integrity and trust. Richard has extensive experience with a wide cross section of organisations such as Shell, KPMG, American Express and Herbert Smith, where work has included presentations skills and personal impact, team building, coaching, influencing and interview technique. He is an experienced large group facilitator, but is equally comfortable coaching on a one to one basis.View more
