Born: December 17, 1966
Famous for: Letting the nurses of Casualty know who's in charge
During his three years as Casualty's Dr Patrick Spiller, Ian earned quite a reputation for his gruff bedside manner. His character met a rather dramatic end in 2002, however, and the actor has since swapped the city for life in the countryside, by joining the cast of Down To Earth. His other TV credits include a stint as romantically-challenged Dave Glover in Emmerdale and corrupt cop Richard Mayne in Blue Murder.
