M-CON 2017 Presents

Have a Chat with Adrian Hough

Half Hour



When you meet Adrian Hough you will have the odd feeling that you know him from somewhere, and you probably do, from one of his many film, and television guest star roles. His versatility with creating a character through voice, movement and background research, along with his uncanny facility for accents, has seen him work internationally playing opposite actors in their native accent, notably Scots actor (Dr. Who) Peter Capaldi`s brother, for the BBC, and a cockney squadie on Heartbeat another British series, and yes,he`s the German guy in the Hyundai commercials. Nominated for a BAFTA award for his full voice and motion capture performance as British Templar Haytham Kenway in the Assassin`s Creed games, Adrian was sought out to pioneer his virtual reality performance as the Seeker in the Cloudhead Games series THE GALLERY . Low key and private, when Adrian is not on stage or screen you will find him speaking out on environmental preservation, or supporting his Nanaimo community with philanthropic events such as M-CON and social justice activism.During this half hour you will see a quick show reel of Adrian`s film and television work followed by a Q & A, when Adrian will answer questions and share insights about his career.
