About Paul Hughes
He took up acting late in life when auditioning for a play at The Rose Theatre in S.W. London. Other theatrical parts soon followed as did roles in short films and TV being quickly added playing a lead in the major television series 'Mafias Greatest Hits' and a leading role in the British Council funded film 'Tea & Crumpets', about the horrors of sex trafficking. His first feature films were 'London Latino' and 'M.O.N.E.Y.' featuring Emmy Award winning actor Wil Johnson. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of 'Dr Who' the BBC cast him to play 'Tom Baker' closely followed by a further appearance on the London fringe theatre scene playing 'Shamrayev' in Chekhov's 'The Seagull'. The steady stream of work continued climaxed by being cast as 'King Saul' in Hollywood director Timothy Chey's 'David and Goliath' launched across U.S.A in 2015. With the neo-noir psych-thriller 'Night Drive' and again working with the BBC on the 'Music Awards' this momentum was maintained. In 2017 he was offered a leading role in the International feature film 'Day Rises. I Fall', a Polish/UK production, the successful trend continuing into 2018 with USA feature film productions of 'The Lovers' and the internationally cast 'The Dark Field' together with the USA TV series 'Classifyd'. The absence from stage work in recent years was soon rectified when appearing in a classic British comedy at the Chiswick Playhouse theatre, closely followed by the short film 'Mind Over Matter', a dark tale about the world of modern art, and the light-hearted mockumentary 'Sun Dreams'. Developments into 2021 continue to inspire with film projects from Italy, Spain and the USA all gaining ground together with the launch of the feature film 'Only Love Matters'. An amazing start to 2022 with the culmination in January of 47 performances at the World Famous London Palladium alongside such notable stars as Donny Osmond, Julian Clary, Nigel Havers, Paul Zerdin, Gary Wilmot and the Tiller Girls in the brilliant variety show 'Pantoland at the Palladium'.
