Dean Lennox Kelly as Puck

Puck (Dean Lennox Kelly)

Oberon's right-hand hobgoblin, Puck's got a wicked sense of humour. That's wicked in the sense of "likely to get someone hurt". In between running errands for the King of the Fairies, Puck enjoys playing pranks and getting a bit of a wobble on.

Dean Lennox Kelly

Lancashire actor Dean is probably best known for his role as laid-back neighbour Kev in Shameless*, in which he appears alongside James McAvoy. Other TV credits to his name include playing Tony Reeves in Tipping the Velvet, Dom in comedy The Worst Week of My Life. He's also appeared in films including Mike Bassett, England Manager in which he played Tonka, and First World War horror Death Watch, playing Private Willie McNess.

Dean's stage experience includes parts in Oh, What A Lovely War at the National Theatre and the part of Snug in The Popular Mechanicals, a play based on A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Dean's brother is the actor Craig Kelly, who played Vince in Queer As Folk* and who has also appeared in the films Titanic and Helen of Troy. They come from Litham St Annes, which Dean describes as "a posh little seaside town near Blackpool, where we get out of the bath to go for a wee."

One of Dean's past jobs was bartending, and he once worked at the Elvis Presley Centre in Blackpool.
