Stupid Cupid – David Thelfall AKA Frank Gallagher BE MY VALENTINE !!!!!!

David Thelfall is without a doubt one of the UK’s best actors. No matter what you feel about the character ‘Frank’ this boy is a sound actor and very convincing. The fact that he come’s from my neck of the woods has nothing to do with it. This is a man who has worked hard and consistently to arrive where he is today.
Born October 12, 1953, in Manchester, England. Addresses: Agent: JamesSharkey Associates, Third Floor, 15 Golden Square, London SW1, England.
