Actor/Writer Liam Thomas grew up in a northern fishing town. Teenage years were spent working at sea before joining the Metropolitan police, where he served as a detective.
He went on to study Film History in London before postgraduate training in acting. In 2017 he was the subject of a Vice Media documentary.
In 2018 he launched Sleeping Dogs, a new theatre company which aims to champion and offer opportunity to northern voices. Arts Council England funded their first production.
He recently completed his first stage play God’s Work, loosely based on an incident he witnessed as a young detective and is currently developing two feature length screenplays.
2019 will see him appear in TIDE, a film he wrote about the life and death of a North Sea trawler.
