WILL THORP

Actor

Will studied drama at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and began his career on stage, but is probably best known for his role as Woody in the BBC medical drama "Casualty". He also guest starred in a two part story 'The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit' in "Doctor Who" in 2006, as well as narrating three Doctor Who Audiobooks for the BBC.

Dancing with Hanna Haarala in the third series of Strictly Come Dancing, and was championed by head judge Len Goodman, while the other judges criticised him for being too stiff and wooden during his latin dances. There were often vast differences between the judges scores, starting in the first week when his Cha Cha Cha earned just a 3 from both Craig and Arlene, but a 7 from Len. The judges were more consistent in the scores for Will's ballroom dances, with all 8's and 9's in week four for his Foxtrot, but in week six, his Tango scored only 28 points and put him in the dangerous mid-table position, and was voted off the competition, finishing seventh out of twelve couples.
