Tim Mills (born 23 May 1962) is a former British actor and stand-up comedian.

Life and career[edit]

Mills was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka to parents Diana West and George Mills. His father's career in insurance took the family to Sri Lanka, Jamaica, Kenya, and the U.K.

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.

Mills married his girlfriend of four years, Sandra in 1990 and they currently reside in Teddington, Middlesex. The couple have one son, Tom.
