Dragonheart Vengeance
Ross has been filming in Transylvania throughout October and November on Universal's new blockbuster epic ' Dragonheart - Vengeance.' He is playing the role of THE BEAR and has been posting pictures on his facebook and instagram accounts.

Ross has been back in action with another collaberation with Scott Adkins and Jess V Johnson. This British action film is due for release in 2019 and stars Craig Fairbrass and Nick Moran in yet another high fuelled fight film.

After the huge success of the 1990's film 'Backdraft' starring Kurt Russel , Universal have finally put together a sequel. Ross has been lucky enough to be cast in this big Hollywood blockbuster but his character and storyline are being kept quiet as to not reveal the plot.

Ross has just signed with 'Core MGMT' and is pleased to be represented by Sara Sehdev.

Ross was born in the small Welsh town of Pontllanfraith in 1974. Growing up in the spectacular landscape of the Welsh Industrial mountains, Ross knew at an early age that his future lay in the theatre. As a boy, he dreamt of one day treading the boards in the footsteps of the luminary actors that had inspired him at such a young age. After leaving school, he followed his dream and left his home in the industrial heart of Wales for the bright lights of London and the West End - a career in acting beckoned...

Settling into his new life in London, Ross split his time between auditioning for Drama Schools and attending auditions for the National Youth Theatre.

It wasn't long before his strong voice, versatility and raw talent would see him offered roles in several West End Youth Theatre productions including Shakespeare's The Tempest.

After a successful run in the West End, Ross was approached by the great musical writer Lionel Bart. Famous for writing the world-famous musical Oliver, Lionel provided Ross with invaluable help getting into the business and seeking agent representation.

Following Lionel's advice, Ross realised that he needed to attend Theatrical School in order to harness his natural acting abilities. After receiving offers from a number of theatre schools, Ross finally moved to Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts after winning the illustrious Sir John Mills Scholarship. Personally chosen over a large number of very talented budding actors by screen legend Sir John Mills himself, the award allowed Ross to concentrate on his training and future career without having to worry about the financial burden that becoming an actor often entails.

With his immediate financial situation secure, Ross was able to seek representation and was very quickly snapped up by a London theatrical agent. Before he had even left theatre school, Ross was already working in a number of high profile professional
acting engagements and attracting attention from some big names in the industry. With all the peices in place, Ross' future as an actor was secure.

The next few years would be a roller coaster ride for Ross as he climbed to even greater heights within the acting world. Hot on the heels of a successful spell with the Chichester Festival Theatre, Ross was on his way to the world-renowned The Royal Shakespeare Company. Spurred on by words of encouragement from Sir Derek Jacobi and Joss Ackland, Ross' acting talents rapidly flourished as he found his place in the acting world. And the rest, as they say, is history...
