A late starter prompted by actor daughter Amy Forrest (also represented by Regan) Michael has crammed a lot into his 10 years. He trained at world renowned Second City in Chicago. Theatrical highlights include last year’s Red Ladder tour of Playing The Joker and a National #1 tour of the award winning three hander Secret Diaries. He made his acting debut as Mr Robinson in an acclaimed Edinburgh Festival version of The Graduate quickly followed by his TV debut in BBC3’s Lunch Monkeys with Nigel Havers. His other TV credits include a recurring character on Coronation St; Ackley Bridge (Channel 4); and Trying Again (Sky). Michael is a true working class Northerner who excels at comedy and pathos; but is also brilliant at steely hard characters such as West in Jez Butterworth’s The Winterling, in Hull Truck’s Arid Land as Woody and Shemr in Javaad Alipoor’s Hurr.
