David Acton is currently appearing in the West End as Arthur Kips in the sensational thriller The Woman In Black. Acton’s acting career was kick started with a tremendous role: he played Albany in the Young Vic Theatre’s production of King Lear in 1997. Following a Shakespeare trend, he worked under the highly reputable director Edward Hall from 1997 to 2000 (taking several female roles as part of the all male Shakespeare Propeller theatre company at the Newbury Watermill Theatre). Following this with predominantly Shakespeare productions with the RSC, from 2003 he started working with various different theatres, companies and directors around the UK. Acton has frequently returned to Nottingham Playhouse, had a performance at the prestigious Old Vic Theatre in Kevin Spacey’s Richard II, and returned to Propeller for their production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2008.
In television, Acton’s BBC career was launched in 1999 and has seen him appearing in The Wyvern Mysteries, Doctors, Fooling Hitler, Blair on Trial, The Bill, Hollyoaks, EastEnders, and, most recently, Silent Witness: A Guilty Mind. He has worked repeatedly on BBC Birmingham radio and has appeared in film, including the 2005 production of Casanova.
