About  Tim

Tim Paley Headshot
I am a North West based actor, living close to Manchester. Originally born and bred in Bradford, West Yorkshire, I moved across the border for the love of a good woman.

Although a late entrant to the acting profession, I am an accomplished actor with experience on stage, in film and in television.

I recently completed filming a small role of a new TV series for Disney+, The Full Monty, and I am sure this project will bring back some memories for many of us of a certain age. Previosly I was honoured to be part of the smash hit Sky comedy,  Brassic (S4).

Other recent roles include playing a funeral director in Coronation Street and a taxi driver in Emmerdale.

A little earlier I was pleased to be asked to the Mascot for Joe Wilkinson on '8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown'. Other TV credits include, Boy Meets Girl, Heartbeat and Phoenix Nights.

Feature film credits include a part in the BAFTA nominated feature, The Selfish Giant, directed by Clio Barnard. Other films include Lock In, Diary of a Bad Lad, Lookin' for Lucky, Tash Force and Bar Stewards.

CV and Credits

As well as a standard driving licence, I also hold a full PCV licence, formerly known as a PSV licence, which I have held since 1984. This licence entitles me to drive any passenger carrying vehicle from mini bus to large coach, through to double decked vehicles, and I can honestly say that I have never been involved in any accidents or collisions in all that time. I also have enhanced DBS clearance.

MoCap Filming

Following a self tape earlier I was successful in getting a job for Cubic Motion/Epic Games. This was really fascinating, new technology, new ways of working. Essentially a test for new software and capture, it was really good to see this in action.
