David Copeland

Actor, Director

David Copeland’s legal career lasted three days before he abandoned it to become an actor. By 1984 he was playing Constable George Brooks in Country GP and appearing as a villain in crime drama Inside Straight. He moved into directing, working on series Peppermint Twist, Bert and Maisy and Night of the Red Hunter. After co-founding new media company CWA in 1994, Copeland set up e-learning company Copeland and Associates in 2013.

I don’t make any distinction between one job and the next. As soon as you start doing that you start phoning it in – like an actor who only tries when they’re doing Shakespeare and doesn’t try hard when they’re doing a commercial. David Copeland
