  • 24th March - 'The secret history of my family'

    On BBC2 at 8pm - watch it

    It's based on the family of a close friend of mine who's great grandparents were involved in gang wars around Manchester in the 1800's, known as Scuttling (created as a result of the popularity of the theater show 'Scuttlers').

    Last year we were invited to be extras in the filming of some re-enactments of what happened in some of those fights and I have a small part as an extra being (a gang member) involved in attacking a pub, by a rival gang





    The Salford Scuttlers

    The Secret History of My Family
    Episode 3 of 4

    Press hysteria and public panic gripped 1890s Salford as it erupted into postcode violence. Rival gangs of youths, known as scuttlers, clashed in pitched street battles. Magistrate Joseph Makinson attempted tostamp out the epidemic of gang warfare by giving the scuttlers a taste of their own medicine.


    More than a century later, descendants of the rival gang leaders and descendants of the judge who tried to stop them tell their family stories, and ask whether violence is still part of life in working-class Salford

    Sounds interesting, I quite like that sort of social history documentary.

        There's 4-5 scenes that I'm in and I don't have any lines as such other than shouting abuse and looking mean, being 'the muscle' of the group.

        Hoping to be my breakthrough act so I can take over with The Transporter films for Jason Statham

            Did giggle though as "scuttling" means something completely different where I come from

                    I think I may leave this forum, it seems to be full of the village people.​
