Education

About me

At 6 foot 4, I am cast as quirky, wrinkled gentlemen, often requiring eyebrow acting: butlers, managers, John Cleese-types – with a dash of Terry Thomas.
Most recently Santa in the M&S Christmas 2016 commercial, plus five more commercials (two for Russia) this year alone. Not averse to a spot of naturism or slipping into drag. See showreel.
Once owned a theatre company called LEADING LIGHT, touring Sleuth and Hysteria. Now older, wiser and greyer, interested in roles for experienced and professional gentlemen, butlers and professors, mad or otherwise. See timbartholomew.co.uk for further details.

Additional Information

Experienced LAMDA teacher – Acting, Devising and Public Speaking – UK and international pupils aged 11 to 20. Former classroom Drama teacher but mystified that GCSE and A level have more to do with box-ticking than with acting.

Fluent French speaker with BA Hons degree in French and Music (University of London Goldsmiths' College)

Additional Skills

Novelist under pen-name Timothy Edward: LESSONS IN HUMILIATION, BODY LANGUAGE and (work in progress) INAPPROPRIATE CONDUCT.
Illustrator: books (DRAGONS AT MARSHMOULDINGS, SCENTS AND SENSUALITY, THE BOOK OF BOTTOMS) and greetings cards.
Clean driving license. Mobile also in coracles and sailing boats, fork-lift trucks and bicycles.
