About Me


Hits: 33

I’ve been an actor all my life (you may remember me from the Full Monty as Barry and more recently as Holiday Grainger’s dad in the new J.K Rowling HBO/BBC TV series, Strike).

Here’s my acting website: www.paulbutterworthactor.com

But I also love art; it’s like acting on canvas… only I get to be the writer, director and lead actor.

So when my son went to university in 2016 I started a part time BA (Hons) Painting degree with the University for the Creative Arts/Open College of the Arts.
