So, he said, ‘Ken, have you ever done any acting before?’. So, I said ‘No’. So, he said ‘Right, I’ve got just the part for you’… and the rest, as they say, is…well… ‘we’ll see’. Born Kenneth Graham Stamp in Cornwall, England to Avon sales lady Hilda and Ship to Shore radio operator Ray. He attended school in North Wales and college in Leicester. After which, Stamp travelled the world for some 20 years – the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East – whilst working in a variety of professions, before returning to his home country. It was then that he was introduced ‘into this crazy actors life’.
Although he studied drama in college, Stamp spent half his life before he found what was perhaps his true calling. Becoming an actor relatively late, he soon began to receive recognition, compliments, and genuine approval for his performances.
As a member of Raindance, Stamp has been deemed as ‘talented’, ‘professional’ and at times ‘mesmerising’ by his contemporaries. Whilst being an ‘absolute pleasure to work with’, he has been featured in a number of recent award winning films, including; The View (Lead), Dragonflies Only Live for 24 Hours, and Toy Box Killers.

Now established, and being praised by directors and co-actors alike, Stamp can also bring his experience to contribute creatively to scripts, helping to bring intensity and depth to the characters he plays.
So, maybe ‘we’ll see’, sooner rather than later.
