About me

At 9 years old Michael landed a part in children’s drama Grange Hill, playing Max in the program for 5 years. At 16 he completed a successful 11 week run at The Chelsea Theatre in his debut stage production Exclude Me. Leads in award winning Fallout (Royal Court Theatre) & Badnuff (Soho Theatre) followed. Michael went on to appear in other popular tv shows such as My Family, Judge John Deed & Sea Of Souls. At 18 he started a 7 month run in the award winning Elmina’s Kitchen (Garrick Theatre). Before the West End run of Elmina’s came to an end he won the part of receptionist Ben Trueman in the BBC’s Hotel Babylon. It’s for this role that Michael is most famous. Running for 4 seasons & achieving figures of 6 million viewers per episode, it’s one of the BBC’s most successful exports & continues to be shown in over 100 countries. As well appearing in ITV′s Afterlife, E4′s BAFTA winning Misfits & giving a notable performance in The Weeping Angels episode of the ever-popular Doctor Who as DI Billy Shipton, Michael is hugely recognisable for his portrayal of outspoken Lloyd Asike in BBC′s long running medical drama Casualty. Michael’s first novel BLACK SHOES was published in 2009.
