john-gaffney2_webJohn Gaffney  (The Blinker)  

John started way back in 1983 when he moved to Jersey in the channel Islands.  It was there he got the bug for acting after being approached by Pat du Bra a local director of theatre whilst singing in a local night club.  She asked John to play a salesman in her play called Playboys (Think of the Full Monty  only 10 years previous).

After returning to Scotland John attended Drama School where he gained an NC in drama. Then John was accepted to study at RSAMD But his commitment to raising his young family was at the time a greater necessity until they were old enough for John to return to his love for the acting and performing industry.

In 2008 John returned to the industry and has since been involved in many projects from The Crews,  A Spanking In Paradise & River City.  John continues to keep pressing with the aim to achieving his goal of becoming a full time actor.
