Theatre[edit]

In 1997 he was part of a hand-selected cast for the Japan-Thai Contemporary Theatre Joint Production of Red Demon in a joint production of the Japan Foundation and the Setagaya Public Theatre. The production was written and directed by Hideki Noda, and performed with a cast of 14 Thai actors and Barnett, carefully selected by Noda himself. It was first performed for three days at Theatre Tram at the end of 1997.[5]

Film and television[edit]

Barnett has appeared in many television and film productions over the years, most usually in 'character roles' rather than starring ones. This has led to his being cast by many high profile directors, including Gore Verbinski, Martin Scorsese, Bryan Singer, George Miller and Marc Forster. The director Nigel Cole, cast Barnett in three separate films, Calendar Girls, Made in Dagenham and his latest, The Wedding Video, due for release in 2012.
