We are delighted to announce that David Elliot will be playing John Carter, Warlord of Mars.
David Elliot was born on July 27, 1981 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He won the BAFTA Scotland Award for Best Actor in the film, KAJAKI, beating Robert Carlyle and David Tennant to the prize.
David started his acting career on stage, going on to tour all over the UK with multi-award-winning shows such as ‘Decky Does a Bronco’ and ‘Hangover’, which he also wrote and directed to rave reviews. The Scotsman wrote; “Elliot has produced a breathtakingly realistic and resonant piece of writing… calls to mind a sort of sub-Irvine Welshian dialogue, but slowly it becomes apparent that the writing is more considered than that… surely destined for even greater things in the future.”
His breakthrough leading role was in the war film’Kajaki‘ (Kilo Two Bravo) which led to him winning a BAFTA award for his role as real-life war hero Cpl Mark Wright.
Other leading man roles include Jackie van Beek’s New Zealand-based relationship drama ‘The Inland Road‘ which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.
He is most recently known as Jonesy in Sky One’s number one hit show ‘Bulletproof‘. Alongside acting David also continues to write and direct.
