Writer, artist, actor, visionary.
Once described as a new upcoming artist, he very quickly became established , and his paintings are now fetching keen interest from across the globe!
There is so much more to Michael Ross than a few skilfully chosen words. Not only his talent in the art world, but he is also an established actor.
For Michael, the theatre was just one of his great callings for more than 25 years.
Michael has held many unforgettable theatre roles at theatres across the North West, before delving into television where he portrayed a teacher in Coronation Street, a detective in Brookside and a Lawyer in Emmerdale, all popular hit soaps. His credit reel also includes a successful career in commercial television and as a gifted Presenter.
Not satisfied with the lack of a real challenge these roles offered, Michael then moved over to film where he played a Lord in the first Sherlock film starring Robert Downey Jr.
Michael has many more feature films to his credit including an independent film about a famous French mathematician, called Evariste Galois, which won its category at the Cannes Film festival one year. He also played a leading role in a modern sci fi film called The Sleeper Effect as well as a leading role in the film, The Turing Enigma.
We are not sure if we can even mention this last one as the film has not been released yet, but Michael also portrayed a Jedi Knight in the lead role in a prequel film to Star Wars titled Prisoner 66.
Shortly after his acting career, Michael decided to focus his attention on his fitness passion, and developed KETTFusion, which is an award winning UK-based fitness brand which is also established in three other European countries and has twice been runner-up in the National Community Fitness awards.
Michael’s brief foray into politics (sort of) saw him as a very passable Tony Blair look-a-like where he portrayed Mr. Blair both here in the UK and in the US opening supermarkets, kissing babies and more.
On a more personal note, Michael was also a UFO investigator for three years and a Hang Glider pilot as well. While his past career and life are very fascinating, it is what the future holds for the charismatic Michael that has his many fans excited.
What does the future hold for Michael? Never one to sit on his hands, so to speak, Michael has already published 27 books, in many genres and for all ages, but it is his trilogy, The Wand Chronicles, that sets his writing above all others, and it is in fact on the verge of being produced into a big profile TV series ( check out the info and trailers and other books here: www.thewand.me )
And then there is his art. He came to this later on in life. On a whim, he bought a children's pack of acrylic paints, two paint brushes and a palette knife, a couple of small stretched canvases and started to paint!
In the space of 3 months he had 6 commissions, and has sold numerous paintings, two exhibitions, and has lot's of art for sale, and so he is combining writing and painting and believes this is his ultimate goal!
