MARK WALKER

23s

Mark started in local theatre in 1977 with Kettering & District Youth Theatre Group in their pantomime, Aladdin. He has since gone on to perform in well over 100 local, and sometimes not so local, productions.
Mark trained as a dancer in his teenage years with the Peggy Hale School of Dance reaching a respectable level.
Character credits of note include, Sky Masterson in Guys & Dolls, Danny in Grease, Cliff in Cabaret, P. T. Barnum in Barnum (3 times), Judd Fry in Oklahoma, The Narrator in Blood Brothers, Jim Fenner in Bad girls, The Cheif in One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and Lennie in Of Mice & Men to name but a few.
In the mid 90’s, Mark gained his Equity card and went on to appear in Eastenders, The Bill, This Life, Dalzial & Pascoe and Casualty. He has also appeared in two feature films, the last one being ‘Lady Godiva Back in the Saddle’ which premiered in November 2007.

Mark has also adapted two feature films into stage plays, Live! and Exam, both of which have been performed by Bonkers Theatrical to great critical acclaim.
