BIOGRAPHY

Graham is known for being a multi-talented Professional, Actor, Director Producer and Communications skills coach; Graham grew up in East Horsley in Surrey in southern England. After training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, he worked in Regional theatres and appeared in several TV series. He moved back to Surrey from London in the late 1980s and raised a family. He now lives in Leatherhead with his wife Suki. With 45 years in the performing arts and media, Graham’s career has encompassed Film, TV, Radio, Rep theatre in the UK, as well as International touring, the Royal National Theatre and London’s West End. A favourite TV series he starred in was Howards Way back in the late 1980s, and the film Goodbye Mr Chips with Martin Clunes.

Graham was a founder and leading player in the British Actors Theatre Company, and was a director of The Original Shakespeare Company in the 1990s, performing at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on London’s Bankside. Graham was recently the Associate Artistic Director of the Leatherhead Theatre Rep Company.

He is a partner in Centre Stage Dance and Drama, a local Dance and Drama school in Oxshott. Last year, with his wife Suki Turner, they started Theatretrain Oxshott, a Saturday morning Musical Theatre performing arts school for Singing Acting and Dance based in Royal Kent School, Oxshott. In 2014 he founded the Surrey Hills Community Radio station; and he’s initiated LAUNCHPAD, a social enterprise to help young people build up their self-belief and learn employability skills. Journey’s End by R.C. Sherriff is his biggest and most ambitious directing production to date – a gripping, classic drama about a group of British soldiers in the trenches in the First World War. However, Graham’s not just Producing and Directing, he’s also playing the Colonel.

Graham founded Theatre Reviva! in order to bring regular, seasonal, professional theatre productions back into his local area. “People said to Graham “When are you going to be in something again, that we can see locally?” So he just had to be in it!” he said.
