Colombo, Sri Lanka
Life and career
Tim was educated at Denstone College in Staffordshire, and later gained a degree in Economics at Liverpool University. Mills began his entertainment career in stand-up comedy, performing at small venues and universities. In 1985, he was infamously labelled, "a f***ing c***" by Scottish comedian Jerry Sadowitz after a performance at The Comedy Store. After working in menial jobs alongside his comedy for a number of years, Tim trained at drama school in 1986 and worked in film and television until 2004 - in both acting and writing.
Despite appearing alongside Dennis Waterman and Julia McKenzie in the critically acclaimed film Vol-au-Vent, Mills is perhaps most well known in acting circles for his work in commercials on UK and German television. Now retired from acting, he works as Deputy Headteacher at a primary school in Kingston upon Thames.
