Tim Paley Banner
Actor and Professional Driver
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+. It sounds like a great project and I am sure will bring back some memories for many of us. That's about as much as I dare say for now. I have also recently completed a small part on Brassic (S4) playing a security guard, which is due to air in September 22.

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.
Show Reel
Features a selection of clips from various projects including…
'Brassic (S4)'
'The Full Monty (TV)'
‘Coronation Street’
‘Clown Kill’
‘Moving On’

Media Selection
In the episode of Moving on (The Value), it was essential that the actor actually drives the bus  in the scenes. I am proud to say that I was offered the role without an audition due to having the PCV licence, and of course being an actor too helped.
The media player offers a selection of clips from various projects I have been involved with either in part or in full.

Many of these can be found on my Vimeo profile
