Simon has been cast to voice the main (titular) character in the upcoming animated feature 'Freddrow the movie' based on a hugely popular children's book series held in most US schools. This film will gain worldwide distribution.

He as also been confirmed for a major feature film to be shot in America in the latter part of 2016 'Action Words: Stand of Faith' he will be playing a reporter bent on obstructing the film's protagonist.

Simon is delighted to have played Darren, a character regularly appearing in the exciting new series 'Good Girls Club' which aired from 26th May until Christmas on Sky261 ShowcaseTV. (Episodes are also easily found on YouTube). Production of the second series is looking likely to be soon.

He featured in British feature 'Stones' playing a friendly (but decidedly sarcastic) Barman at the local of the protagonist.

Simon concluded filming as leading man (late 2014) in the Cinepix London film 'Dirty Back Seat' a short which will be heading to the bigger international Festivals prior to being screened on television. (Won 'Best Short' at 'Indiefest' its first festival outing and again recently in Hong Kong).

Simon was cast as Red1 in 'Evolutionary'
www.imdb.com/title/tt4008584/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
He performed in a speaking capacity and also in fight scenes.

Simon performed in a one-man show that toured the London area: 'Summer Holiday' (largely song-based but the necessity for high levels of audience interaction meant acting skill was also required). The run Simon completed was met with 100% positive client feedback and he was specifically requested for future events as a result by several of the venues.

Simon has been cast in the male lead of a Feature Film: 'Underground' He is enormously excited by this and once it is possible to resume production, more details will follow when prudent/permitted.

In March Simon completed a successful run of 'The Importance of being Earnest' in which he played Jack Worthing (male lead) in Sussex.

In 2013 Simon gained a prominent role in the film 'Fish' (short) his first role acting as a father, the film presented fresh challenges which he enjoyed facing and overcoming.

Simon did voice-over work for Irish Radio International, doing the scripted links/in-show promo clips for 'The Gathering' a show on Thursdays from 8-9pm (recordings in use from 28/03/2013), giving him the opportunity to show a few of his many spoken-voice 'gears'.
(See profile audio-clips).

Simon was cast in the male lead as Sky Masterson in 'Guys And Dolls' with HAODS November 2012 this speaking-role debut was wonderfully warmly received.
Please see review from Noda: www.noda.org.uk/events/reports/haods
and was also reviewed by the West Sussex County Times (attached to profile as if a photo).

Simon was cast as a psychopath character in the leading role of 'Foot Fetish' (short) which was filmed in the summer of 2012, (see the reels section of his profile). He received excellent feedback on his performance and professionalism following this, his first film shoot, which was completed two days sooner than had been allowed.

The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts described Simon as: 'Remarkably instinctive, unbelievably accomplished...' and awarded him the Meisner (talent based) scholarship (the only one available to non-US residents) following audition for them in when they did a European talent search in April 2012, though for practical reasons he could not accept the generous offer-and instead continues to develop himself through well-chosen local courses.

Simon toured, performing in a one-man show 'Summer Holiday' which enjoyed great reception when in the London area, the vast number of contrasting song styles showcased his great range-both vocally and in terms of accents spoken and sung.

He appeared in 'Songs For A New World' a production for the Brighton Fringe Music Festival (from 30th May-2nd June 2013), following auditions in December 2012. This was very much enjoyed by audiences and Simon alike, who was honoured to perform alongside such a great and talented cast.

Simon was cast in the romantic lead as Sky Masterson in the musical 'Guys and Dolls' in November 2012 with Haods. Most of the feedback from this described his New York speaking voice as sounding like Brad Pitt and his singing reminiscent of Bing Crosby.

Simon has written and recorded a large amount of 'on the spot' moments of inspiration, many of which are easily the bones of whole songs from one sitting. He is hugely passionate about the motives/emotions of each piece and expresses himself profoundly.

He is able to perform in any style (from second bass, into bari-tenor with strong falsetto). Simon can effectively impersonate a variety of performers. (Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Michael Bublé, Elton John to name a few).
