LIAM SEYMOUR  Actor (Dan)

Liam loves comedy in every shape and form, unfortunately his standup is nothing to write home about though, haha :( (Liam is also writing this so why am I writing in the 3rd person??)

Along with some film and TV roles, Liam is has been selling his soul to a number of products on TV and the internet for 5 years now and absolutely loving it. Lots of internet content and also live performance round out Liam's Entertainment resume.

There is a large mop of ginger hair on Liam's head which he is very proud of, because not only is Liam a 'fanta pants' but he can also gain a pretty mean tan in Summer which makes him a very rare individual.
