Simon Brading was raised and educated in London.

He has  appeared in the "Aguila Roja", "Reinas" and  "Glow and Darkness" TV series' and starred in numerous short films, advertising campaigns, as well as a feature film "Checkout" shot in Sitges, Barcelona.

Before becoming an actor he danced in classical ballet and contemporary companies around the world including K Ballet (Tokyo), Vienna Festival Ballet and Santamaria Compañia de Danza (Madrid). Despite having danced his fair share of princes and other principal roles he freely admits to not having been the best dancer in the world. 

Most recently he has taken up writing seriously and has self-published more than a dozen books including eight volumes in the "Misfit Squadron" Steampunk series, a five-volume action-adventure series for Young Adults called the "Displacers" series, a couple of books in a new series for children based around the world of ballet dancing called the "Twin Ambitions" series and some stand-alone sci-fi novels.

He currently lives in Barcelona, but maintains roots in London.
