Mark Letheren - a Profile
Mark wanted to act from a very early age. Even his parents accepted that it was his destiny after seeing him perform the lead role in Toad of Toad Hall at Ardingly College Junior school at the age of 12. Toad brought tears of laughter streaming down the cheeks of the audience, as he enthused about his new discovery - the motor car.
Mark was born in Chelmsford in 1971, moving to Sussex in 1975. He attended Ardingly College, followed by two years studying drama at Chichester, prior to accepting a place at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the age of 18. His first professional role after graduation was that of Dave, the builder's mate, in Building Blocks, by Bob Larbey, at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton.
His television debut came soon afterwards, followed by numerous roles in a variety of television dramas. His large screen debut was in Restoration, with Robert Downey, jr.
He has returned to the stage many times in his career. He played Jamie in the world premiere of John Harvey's "Beautiful Thing" and starred (with Danielle Tilley) in Mark Healey's adaptation of John Fowles' "The Collector".
He toured the USA with the Royal Shakespeare Company, as Flute, in a Midsummer Nights Dream.
His theatre, film and television roles are recorded, in rough chronological order, on the relevant pages on this site and there are some stills from some of his television roles on the gallery page.
