Updated: Dec 14, 2018
Wayne Gordon is most famously known for the role of DOOM in the TV series 'Gladiators' and for representing Great Britain for over 7 years in Bobsleigh. A man of many talents, he has appeared in several TV shows and dramas as well as being ex-military, stunt/fight/ weapon/marshall arts and vehicle trained. He has numerous feature film credits including, 'RED 2', Bond film; 'Skyfall' and has just finished filming feature film 'Angel Has Fallen' alongside Gerard Butler.
Wayne has most recently finished shooting the role of 'Otto' in hit Amazon Prime show 'Into the Badlands', directed by Stephen Fung and Tow Frazer. The role began small, but the directors and producers were so impressed with Wayne that they made the role bigger and he now stars in it throughout Season 3!
Wayne is currently The Face and Voice of The Perfume Shop's Christmas Campaign. TV commercials are out and Radio ADs go live across the UK and Ireland soon. We have asked him a few questions which he was delighted to answer to give us an insight into the job!
How does it feel to be the face of The Perfume Shop's Christmas Campaign with it being such a well renowned brand?
From a young age I wanted to be the face of a fragrance, so I guess this is close. It really is exciting and recently I have been called the perfume man :-). I do hope this is a long standing relationship with The Perfume Shop.
What has the role entailed so far?
The role so far, has been creating Video On Demand commercials and several radio voice overs for the brand. We are currently running the voice commercials for the build up to the Black Friday Event which should then lead into the Christmas shopping ads.
Are you enjoying working on a project that isn't so character driven? (As opposed to being in a film for instance)
I love this project, it is far different to what I have done in the past. However, I still focus on acting because The Perfume Shop wanted a character that's not the norm and someone that the today's person can resonate with. I'm happy that they have trusted what I have created for them and I look forward to working with them further.
