Jamie Glover (born 10 July 1969) is an English actor. He portrayed Andrew Treneman in the BBC One drama Waterloo Road and starred as Roger Tramplemain in Michael Frayn's comical farce Noises Off at the Novello Theatre in 2012.

Background[edit]

Born and brought up in Barnes, London, Glover is the son of actors Julian Glover and Isla Blair.[1] He attended Frensham Heights School in Farnham, Surrey,[2] and trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama.[3]

Glover has two daughters, Edie and Ava, with his girlfriend, actress Sasha Behar. They currently live in Brixton, South London.[1] During his time at the Central School of Speech and Drama, Glover met and shared a flat with fellow actor Philip Glenister and was responsible for introducing Glenister to his wife, actress Beth Goddard.[1]

Career[edit]

Television[edit]

Glover made his professional debut in the soap opera Jupiter Moon.[2] Other television credits include Birds of a Feather, Casualty, Joseph, New Tricks, Midsomer Murders and Trial & Retribution XV: Rules Of The Game. He played deputy head Andrew Treneman in the first two series of the BBC school-set drama Waterloo Road, alongside Jason Merrells and Angela Griffin, and briefly reprised the role in the fourth series.

Theatre and film[edit]

Glover made his first stage appearance at the age of eight, playing young Marcius in a production of Coriolanus at Stratford. Although other juvenile appearances and film offers followed, his parents kept him from becoming a child actor, preferring that he make the choice about his career when he was ready.[4] His theatre work includes Edward III, Henry V (Propeller), The Chalk Garden, The Glass Menagerie, The Cherry Orchard and All's Well That Ends Well, alongside Judi Dench.[1] He also appeared in Hamlet at the Norwich Playhouse, alongside his parents, with Julian Glover also directing the production.[4]

Glover has appeared in the films These Foolish Things, The Reef and Closing Numbers.

Voice work[edit]

Glover has lent his voice to documentaries, commercials, audiobooks and computer games.[1] He joined the Star Wars universe in various voice-roles; he played General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars: Battlefront II, taking over the role from his father who played the same character in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. In Battlefront II, he dubbed over archive footage of his father as Veers for the archive footage sequences in the game from Empire Strikes Back. He returned to reprise his role as Veers in Star Wars: Empire at War. He also did voice work in Knights of the Old Republic II, and has a major role in Star Wars: The Old Republic as Darth Malgus.

He also works in radio drama, and considers that: "Radio allows you to do work on a really good piece with a great cast, director and writer but because it takes far less time, it means that you can schedule in other things easily".[3]

Directing[edit]

Glover directed student productions at RADA, and in 2008 made his directorial debut with a production of Measure for Measure for the Ambassador's Theatre Group.[1]
