Julian Alistair Rhind-Tutt (born 20 July 1968) is an English actor. He is best known for his starring role as Dr "Mac" Macartney in the comedy television series Green Wing, the second series of which finished on Channel 4 in May 2006. He has also appeared in various other television shows and films.

Early life[edit]

Rhind-Tutt was born in West Drayton, London, the youngest of five. There was a ten-year gap between him and his two brothers and two sisters. He attended the John Lyon School in Harrow, Middlesex. While there he acted in school productions, eventually taking the lead in a school production of Hamlet that played at the Edinburgh Festival fringe in the mid 1980s. After reading English and Theatre Studies at the University of Warwick, he attended the Central School of Speech and Drama in London[1][2] where he won the 1992 Carleton Hobbs Award from BBC Radio Drama.[3]


Rhind-Tutt landed his first big acting break playing the Duke of York in The Madness of King George (1994). This was followed by a succession of smaller television and film roles. He then landed a major role in William Boyd's First World War drama The Trench (1999) alongside Paul Nicholls and Daniel Craig.

He became better known following his starring role in Green Wing and he has had a major role in cult American show Keen Eddie as Inspector Monty Pippin. He also appeared as a duellist in the video for Roots Manuva's single "Too Cold". He has appeared in over 50 radio productions.[1]

In 2008, he appeared narrating a short film for the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.[4]
