Joshua worried about being a target as Mauler. Could that be why he moved Down Under?
Joshua Fenton DOB: 10 June 1972

PLACE OF BIRTH: Marden, South London

TV: THE JASPER CARROTT SHOW; Mauler McCaul in GRANGE HILL (1988-90); Billy theArmed Robber in CRIMEWATCH (BBC); ROUGH JUSTICE (BBC); Armed Bank Robber in CRIME MONTHLY; THE INDEPENDENT MAN (LWT); The Young Giant in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA (BBC)

THEATRE: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (school musical); Judge Haythorne in THE CRUCIBLE (Hackney Empire); SAILOR BEWARE (acting and directing - Theatre Royal, Margate)

SIMILARITIES TO SCREEN PERSONA: Josh told No.1 Magazine in 1988 that he couldn't stand Mauler, and that he was a real moron. If Mauler and Josh came face to face, they'd have ended up killing each other!

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW... Joshua was worried how Mauler McCaul would be perceived by the Grange Hill audience when he joined the show, especially with all the flak Mark Savage took for playing Gripper. But he needn't have worried - Mauler and his gridiron crew provided the series with lots of great comedy compared to Gripper's thuggery.

WHERE IS HE NOW...? Josh trained at Italia Conti and after spending time as a drama teacher in New Zealand, Josh has returned to live in Ramsgate.
