Hello and welcome to my new website

David Graham, British actor, personal website

Friends have been suggesting to me for some time that I should put something up on the web but it’s taken a while for me to get around to it.
I’ve been working in this business for so many years now and, truth to tell, I don’t always remember the exact details of everything that I’ve done.

But I have been lucky enough to work with some very talented people and be associated with some very famous shows.

And I’m still working at it,  still acting and doing voiceovers, and still enjoying it – which I suppose is what really counts.

All in all, it’s been an interesting life and I hope you’ll find it interesting too. If you have any suggestions or questions about the site, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment.

yours very cordially,

David Graham

One For Sorrow

One for Sorrow

Three minute thriller from the mind of Steve Jamison. Plug in your headphones and go full volume, the sound fx courtesy of Pindrop are really something special.

Never one to shy away from challenges (his first short was a futuristic fairytale, his second set underwater, in another language and featuring a 12yr old non-actor) Steve thought it’d be a good idea to write several animals into his third short film. ‘Oh great’ said Producer Adam, then tasked with finding an acting dog and performing magpie, ‘Where’s the next one going to be set, the moon?’ Now there’s an idea…

Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony

Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony January 2005

This Horizon docudrama combined interviews and commentaries by Brian Cox with dramatised scenes about Einstein on his deathbed working on what he hoped would be his greatest work of all – a project that he hoped would unlock the mind of God.

After playing Elgar to critical approval, David’s portrayal of Einstein is equally detailed and convincing.
