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.
He has written screenplays both alone and in partnership with Timothy Gibbs, co-founding the Alkeme Company.
He will be starring in MAGNUM OPUS, a new series produced by Alkeme.
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 published several books including a five volume action-adventure series for Young Adults called the "Displacers" series and some stand-alone novels. He has recently begun a new series of books for children based around the world of ballet dancing - the "Twin Ambitions" series.
