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 many, many commercials, he’s most feted for his Leader of the Opposition in Ali G in Da House. He recently appeared in the Fox TV series ‘Genius’ (with Geoffrey Rush as Einstein) as Count Von Sturgh, Austro-Hungarian prime minister. Aside from the Queen, Fellini is his most famous interlocutor. A recent RADA festival appearance was in ‘Unoriginal Sins’ by award winning playwright Oliver Bennett, as a Welsh copyright snooper in a future dystopia where every viewing or listening, public or private, is chargeable. The very latest of his nine one man shows include a double bill, ‘The Duke of Windsor in Heaven’ - “Scandalous, discomfiting and highly amusing...witty, debonair and blasé” - Camden New Journal), and ‘Nobody in their Right Mind’ - “…drunken clerical hilarity…had me rolling around in my seat with laughter…a fabulous night out!”. “An experienced actor who can engage an audience, and deliver a beautifully relaxed and compelling performance.” Leslie Philips (his acting hero, with whom he toured) wrote of him as a “super actor”, wishing him “much success”. He and his beloved wife Vicky live in St Albans. He has eight step-grandchildren. When not acting he fingers a fine bagpipe and defends in the Crown Court as a Barrister of Middle Temple.
