Dennis Waterman

Versatile British Actor & Star Of 'New Tricks'

Born in Clapham, London in the late 1940’s British actor Dennis Waterman is the youngest of nine children, the only child of the Waterman family to venture into the entertainment business Dennis began acting as a child and made his first film appearance in Night Train for Inverness aged just 12.

A trained actor Waterman attended the Corona Stage School in Hammersmith and has cited the school’s support and development that has allowed him to play such a diverse range of characters during his career.

Probably best known for his time on the UK police drama The Sweeney and for the major role he played in the cult film Up The Junction in 1968. In more recent years, Dennis Waterman has appeared in the BBC crime drama New Tricks alongside fellow British actors Denis Lawson and Amanda Redman.

Somewhat of a pin-up of the 1970’s (during his days on The Sweeney) Dennis Waterman also played the lead character in the hit comedy drama Minder. The highlight of Dennis’ career during the 1980’s is arguably his role as the lead in the BAFTA award winning BBC adaptation of Fay Weldon’s The Life and Loves of a She-Devil.

As well as working as an actor Dennis Waterman has also released a number of studio albums, making his first foray into music when he recorded the theme song for the show Minder. Since then he has recorded a number of theme songs for shows on which he has starred and even had a number one hit in Australia.
