Celtic-blooded, Cambridge-raised Craig attended the Perse School, Sir Peter Hall’s alma mater. After his RADA scholarship he board-trod in repertory, national tours, National Theatre (for Sir Peter), West End (again for Sir P), Edinburgh Festival, London fringe. Frequently in TV and film, and pleading Guilty to many commercials, he’s most hailed for his Leader of the Opposition in Ali G in Da House. Aside from the Queen, Fellini is his most famous interlocutor. His several one man shows include, most recently, “Swimming Pools, Psychos, Spouses”. His latest London appearance was in surreal miscellany “Patronised Horses”, where he gave his coked-up disintegrating Australian tour-guide, his haemorrhoidal Barnsley farmer, and his Jeremy Paxman. Leslie Phillips is his acting hero (with whom he toured). He and his beloved wife Vicky live in St Albans and own property in Hastings. He has eight step-grandchildren. When not acting he fingers a fine bagpipe and defends criminals as a barrister.
