Kevin Sacre (born Kevin Bignell on 23 March 1978)[1] is a British actor. He is most famous for his performance as Jake Dean in the British Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, a role he played from 2002 to 2010.[1]

Early life[edit]

He was born in London.[1]

Acting career[edit]

Kevin started his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company followed by TV series Night and Day for ITV in which he played Dennis Doyle from 2001–02 with ex-cast member Stuart Manning then on to Hollyoaks. He left the show in May 2008.[2][3]

In December 2008, Kevin played the lead in Aladdin at Sheffield Lyceum Theatre.[4]

On 6 July 2009, after much speculation it was confirmed Sacre will be returning to his role as tragic, incarcerated, mentally ill Jake Dean [5]

Despite reports that Kevin was axed from Hollyoaks along with 13 other characters as part of a cast cull, it transpires that the majority of these characters actually left of their own accord, Kevin being one of these. His character Jake Dean left in 2010.

Sacre made a cameo appearance in the Ricky Gervais show Extras.

He also made a guest appearance on The Weakest Link alongside co-star Ali Bastian.

Kevin took part in Living TV's The Underdog Show last Summer where 10 celebrities train 10 rescue dogs and won the show. He also met girlfriend Camilla Dallerup to whom he is now married.
