Liam Calgie trained at the Birmingham School of Speech & Drama, whilst still at Drama School he appeared in a BBC production of Oliver Twist and a production of Sleeping Beauty with the Royal Ballet as a somewhat dubiously named character “Cat Carrier”, there ended his association with any form of dance.
After leaving Drama School he toured extensively with various children’s theatre companies and small scale theatre productions. His work has taken him abroad to France and Germany with such plays as Pinter’s Dumb Waiter and a prodution of Comedy of Errors playing both Dromio’s.
He appeared on BBC television as Alexander the Great in Newton’s Revelution and has directed and appeared in many London fringe productions.
His association with The Walking Theatre Company stretches back to its earliest beginnings, however he only became a full time member two years ago when he moved to Scotland (which turned out to be the best move ever). Working as both an actor and Director, Liam has proved invaluable to the Company and has helped to shape our way of doing things.
Favorite roles have included:
Macbeth, Dromio and The Walking Theatre Company’s very own Hector Plasm
