SUMMARY

Leaving the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1985, having won the prestigious Bancroft Gold Medal, Iain immediately rose to prominence with his acclaimed performance as a charismatic gang leader in The Fear for Euston Films. Followed by his multi award winning tour de force as imprisoned Scottish poet Larry Winters in Silent Scream he was set for a rich and varied career. Few actors have managed to maintain a balance between stage and screen and achieved such success in both. More recently Iain has starred in The Crucible, Uncle Vanya and Hedda Gabler in London’s West End that have all won a host of awards.

This official web site offers a thorough insight into his work and is full of archive material from personal files. Each production opens it’s own page where all relevant information can be found including credits, photographs, video clips and awards.
