Manchester born and bred David made his television debut in ITV’s Northern lights followed by City Lights alongside Robson Green. This ignited his love of screen acting so he decided to train and went to Pendleton performing arts college.
After training he was fortunate to play the son of Frances Barber and the late great Bob Hoskins, in Jimmy Mcgovern’s The Street.
David continued to work in television with appearances in Dr Who, Shameless, Hollyoaks and Doctors and most recently BBC’s Trust Me alongside Jodie Whittaker and Blake Harisson.
