Actor Phil Davis, who has been described by The Guardian as 'the unsung hero of British character acting'. An award-winning, highly esteemed actor whose extensive career spans theatre (NT, RSC among others), film (with a long association with Mike Leigh) and television (Being Human, Bleak House (BBC) among others). We look forward to discussing with him his work, acting for television and overall experience as a professional working actor.
