Derek Riddell is one of the UK's underrated actors who graduated from LAMDA's three year acting course in 1990. Derek worked very hard leading up to his television career in plays including Midsummer Night's Dream and Claudio in Much Ado About Nothing. Also appeared in The Cosmonaut's Last Message to the Woman he once Loved in the Former Soviet Union at the Tron theatre.

He made a few appearances on the small screen during the nineties but he is now getting some of the recognition he deserves with surreal black comedy "The Book Group" (2002) as the suppressed gay football fan Rab and is to star in the hit Brit drama "Clocking Off" (2000). An actor who truly has his best years ahead of him.

  • Son of actress Hope Ross and former professional footballer Ian Riddell. Partner is actress 'Frances Carrigan' (qv).
