A year in the life of a supporting actor

In 2011 i started to act as a supporting actor in the film Cockneys vs zombies,it was only meant to be a one off.
But i got the bug and carried on while waiting to go to India to marry my wife.
I done a further four films and enjoyed it so much that when i return to uk next year i will carry on.
This is the story of those five films and pictures to go with them.
(Please note that the pictures that go with this did not upload,i guess movellas doesnt do that)

Independent review

Paul Tanter drama of criminal opportunism recounts the true(ish) story of football yob who gets a shot at the big time.

Nick Nevern plays the titular London hooligan recruited by a gang of credit card fraudsters and launched on a journey through birds, drugs, cash and prison.

It’s your basic chronicle of wrong doing, unrelieved by wit and excitement through Simon Phillips as gang’s supervisor offers some charismatic unpleasantness.


Announced july 2012 that this years Film4 frightnight fest will be at Leicester square empire London from 23rd to the 27th august.

Special guest will be the famous horror director Italian Dario Argento.

Showcased in the fright night fest will be the films creature feature Grabbers, the living dead romp Cockneys vs. Zombies, human experiment Guinea Pigs, the clown comedy Stitches and many more horror films.


Just found out that the Wee Man was shown at the Cannes film festival in May this year.


The wee man 90 mins 2011 gangster blockbuster

This is the story based on the real life of an ordinary young kid from decent hard working parents. Brought up in the notorious area of black hill Glasgow.

And his journey through his teenage years to man hood, the story is set in the sixties, Paul Ferris an 11 year old boy, already he has learned that life on the streets is tough.

Everybody knows his place, poverty breeds corruption, crime, violence and bullying.

Black hill was top of the list; Paul had to witness drunken men fighting on the streets, a corrupt police force which dealt with the violence with their own kind of violence.

For instance six bully policemen kicking some guy half to death why no one dares to ask questions.

Pauls father instilled in him, know nothing, say nothing, do nothing and you can survive.

Never grass as far as Arthur knew Paul was never comfortable working for the god father and he hated his son, a fat slob who lived off his father’s reputation and bullied people for effect.




Cockneys vs. zombies

A gang of bank robbers fight their way out of a zombie infested London.

The magnificent eleven

A modernization of the classic western in which the cowboys are a struggling local football team.

The Indians run a nearby tandoori restaurant and the bandits are a group of menacing thugs led by a maniac known only as American bob.

This is the original poster for Cockneys vs. zombies, the one they used while we were on set.

This looks like it could be the poster they use for the release of Cockneys vs. zombies in august 2012.

Cockneys vs. zombies will be on general release 31st august 2012, the trailer is on YouTube, I am in the trailer in the corridor scene.

Cockneys vs. zombies will premier on 23rd of august at fright night feast in Leicester square London. Agent Johnny Lynch is arranging a special V.I.P night for supporting actors, I am in India so will miss this; it would have been a great night.

Lots of interest from fellow zombies would have been a great night, meeting in a club first for a drink and chat then onto cinema.

My scene in the official trailer, I’m near the back but come forward as it goes on.

The cockneys vs. zombies VIP party was a huge success, read some of the comments and a good time had by all, shame I missed this after all my hard work on cockneys.

Cockneys vs. zombie’s now general cinema release from 31-08-2012 with mixed reviews but it looks like it is going to be a success.

The trailers for Facial, the wee man and the magnificent eleven are all now on YouTube, they all look good and I can’t wait to see all the films I have been in when I get back to the uk.


My scene in the short film facial, I am holding the pint glass in the back ground, I have now seen the film and like it very much. It is well acted and directed and is a deep thoughtful film.

The short film facial copies will be available soon heard it from director Mark Blackman on twitter.

Interesting fact about the wee man-Scottish police refused director Ray Burdis permission to shoot any of the film in Scotland, because of on going investigations of Paul Ferris. The film was shot in England while pretending to be in Scotland.

Johnny Lynch the agent has been trying to get together 5000 zombies to meet in London in October 2012 to try and beat the world record for zombies in one place. I was asked of course but I am still in India, it would have been fun.
