Max and I have worked together on and off for about four years now. He's tall, dashing, and debonair, and my Mum thinks he looks a bit like Nigel Havers back in the day.
Just before Covid locked down all the theatres, Max was playing one of his bucket list roles - The Actor in Woman in Black in the West End. He'll be returning as soon as he can (hopefully won't have forgotten all those lines!) but until then he's been keeping himself busy with his own theatre company, Scoot Theatre.
2020 saw the newly formed Scoot tour cricket grounds in the UK with a cricket inspired A Midsummer Night's Dream and great reviews in The Guardian, a concert of West End showtunes, and an adaptation, written and directed by Max, of Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
Scoot Theatre are back again this summer and, in addition to A Midsummer Night's Dream they have added A Comedy of Errors to their repertoire.
In addition to all this, Max is currently working on a number of adaptations of classic texts. He can also be seen in Downton Abbey and the upcoming feature Dream Horse opposite Toni Collette.
He sends wickedly funny WhatsApp messages at all hours of the day and night too.
