Paterson Joseph

Film & TV Actor

Biography

I was born in Willesden Green. I lived there and attended school in the Borough of Brent until I was 15. I then studied at Hendon College of Further Education, now Middlesex University and sat my Business Diploma and O Level in English. I was a terrible bunker at school so college helped to sort me out. I worked briefly as a catering assistant then joined the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone. After catching the acting bug I attended Lamda and left there in 1988. I have worked extensively in Theatre, Television on the Radio and the odd Feature Film.
