Denis has always had a passion for TV and film, and after touring Europe with the world famous American Hell Drivers working as a stunt man, he followed this passion and headed to the bright lights of London. He took a job at the UK’s best known cinema advertising contractor Pearl and Dean, working in the design team and creating cinema commercials. He decided to explore his interests further and moved back to the northwest to study a BA(Hons) in acting at The Arden School of Theatre in Manchester. After graduation he continued to be involved in TV, film and theatre, appearing in Eastenders, as well as acting alongside the likes of Ralph Little, Joanna Froggatt and Pam Ferris in BBC’s drama Paradise Heights. He was also nominated as best black actor in the award winning short film Hypnotized.
Denis is also a Writer-Director, taking influence from such great Directors as Clint Eastwood and Peter Jackson. He writes original and gritty stories that build strong characters and have a sprinkle of black comedy for good measure.
