He is also starring in this summer's animated move Tarzan.

Bristol Old Vic regulars Stewart Wright (Swallows and Amazons, ITV's Doc Martin), Zara Ramm (Treasure Island) and Tom Wainwright (The Boy Who Cried Wolf) are playing Ray Wilson, Geoff Hurst and Alan Ball respectively.

Returning from a hugely successful international tour of A Midsummer Night's Dream is Kyle Lima playing Jack Charlton.
