Karl Collins
Karl Collins - Nottingham actor

Glazed over!

Karl Collins, formerly known as Danny Glaze from The Bill, is born and bred in Notts. He tells us about his latest return to our city and shortly... our screens.


Karl Collins is Nottingham born and bred.

He was born in Clifton and lived in Nottinghamshire until he was 18, when he set off for the big smoke to further his acting career.

The boys done good - he's just finished a four and a half year run on prime time TV as Danny Glaze in the Bill.

This summer Karl returned home for the summer, filming A Thing Called Love, a BBC One drama, penned by local scriptwriter William Ivory.

He's been chatting to Nigel Bell about filming in Nottingham, including...

  • His role as Floyd 'a man who goes swimming to get rid of the horn'
  • Filming back on his home turf - 'it's an amazing city'
  • How Nottingham has changed over the last two decades
  • Enjoying some proper home cooking
  • ...and how his mum managed to embarrass him on set

He also talks about his career so far...

  • How he started acting
  • How he got his first TV job at the age of 14
  • Heading off to London to go to drama school
  • Starring as Danny Glaze for 4½ years in The Bill
  • and working with Shane Meadows on 24/7

Karl describes Nottingham as 'an amazing city' and says A Thing Called Love portrays this.

"Nottingham comes out looking good. You get the impression that it's a good place with funny and intelligent people. Which is true. But I'm biased."

A Thing Called Love, starring our very own Karl Collins, is to be broadcast on Tuesdays at 9.00pm on BBC One from Tuesday, 28th September 2004.
