Oliver Price discusses his journey from Leicester to London and what it's like to be an actor in the UK. Oliver travels the world as an actor and stuntman after leaving his life as a body builder behind. We also discuss the differences between speaking "American" and "English". No worries, mate!
Having been a British Champion bodybuilder weighing a lean 240lbs and standing at 6'2" he is a physically imposing actor, (voted most popular cyborg) in the TV series 'Beat The Cyborgs' and horrifying audiences as the lead villain 'Needletooth' in 'Dark Corners', yet he possesses the delicate touch required for comedy ('The List') and Shakespeare ('Caliban').
He has worked with Hollywood directors James Gunn and Nicolai Fuglsig, and on the Royal Opera House stage ('Anna Nicole') with Richard Jones CBE. In 2020 he appeared in the acclaimed show 'Vikings' playing the character 'Galan' over several episodes. In 2022 he heavily featured with action star Tiger Shroff in the Bollywood feature 'Heropanti 2' directed by Ahmed Khan.
Away from acting he is a big RPG fan, his earliest gaming memories being 'Pong' on the Atari 2600 woody and 'Elite' on the BBC. Born and raised in Leicester, he now resides in London.
