Simon Brading (born 5th November 1975) was raised and educated in London.

He has starred in numerous short films, advertising campaigns, a feature film "Checkout" shot in Sitges, Barcelona and appeared in the "Aguila Roja" series for TVE.

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 ten books including 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 has recently begun a Steampunk series the "Misfit Squadron" series which is seeing moderate success.

He currently lives in Barcelona with his mortgage and his views of the city, but maintains roots in London.
