SUMMARY

Leaving the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1985, having won the prestigious Bancroft Gold Medal, Iain immediately rose to prominence with his acclaimed performance as a charismatic gang leader in The Fear for Euston Films. Followed by his multi award winning tour de force as imprisoned Scottish poet Larry Winters in Silent Scream he was set for a rich and varied career. Few actors have managed to maintain a balance between stage and screen and achieved such success in both.

Iain has been described as “The greatest Scottish theatre actor of his generation.” His many award winning performances include Henry V and The Crucible at the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Blue Room in the West End and on Broadway and more recently Uncle Vanya.
