LONDON IRISH: Todd lives in London with his
partner of many years, Dina Clarkin. They have two sons
James and Thomas. He's fiercely protective of his private
life. Todd's mum Maggie, a former nurse, is Irish and
came to London where she met his dad Tom, an engineer.
He has two sisters, Billie Jo and Bobby Sue.
LOOKING BACK... Todd
says while most children today recognise him as Mark Fowler,
to their parents he'll always be Tucker. He says he's been
lucky to be involved in long-running series like Grange Hill,
but is now looking forward to spending time with his family.
TODD ON GH... Of all the characters Todd
has played, Tucker remains his favourite. "He'll always be number
one for me. Tucker was cheeky, got away with murder and I loved
it," Todd told the Daily Miror. "If it wasn't for Tucker,
I might not have got the role of Gabriel. The producer at The
Bill was a fan of Grange Hill, so good old Tucker has looked
after me throughout my career. He has never let me down."
