Joe’s first big break came at the age of 12 when his drama teacher recommended him for a small role in Scottish crime drama Taggart, and the rest, as they say, is history. Joe’s career went from strength to strength going on to star alongside Judi Dench and Michael Gambon in period drama Cranford, as well as landing a long-term role as PC Joe Mason in Heartbeat. 

After taking to the stage in West End shows Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Rent, in 2013, Joe slipped on the doctor’s coat to join the cast of Holby City as Italian doctor Raf di Lucca.
