Hi, John Hudson (aka Ian Hudson) here. Welcome to my Star File!
DOB: 13/7/84

Ian Hudson in GRANGE HILL (BBC 1998); THE BILL (Thames TV); EASTENDERS (BBC); James Pearce in WALL OF SILENCE (2004)

JOHN ON IAN: I'm completely different from the way Ian used to be but as the years have gone on I've tried to make him a bit more like me. The only thing I'd change about him is his lack of love intrests! Ha ha. It wasn't easy acting the Ian/Adam scenes; Sam (Bardens) and I always got on well. Sam has moved to Los Angeles since and I have been to visit him

FAMILY: I live with my dad in Huddersfield. My mum lives in Devon and I have two older sisters and lovely baby nephew who's just four years old!

HOBBIES: I like playing pool, darts and making short films. I also play in a rock band as guitarist. I like rock music like Led Zeppelin, Jeff Buckley, Jimi Hendrix etc. Favourite films are Somewhere In Time, Breakfast at Tiffany's and It's A Wonderful Life. That's my all-time favourite.

John Hudson

I enjoy writing - scripts, music and poetry, and Tottenham Hotspur (Robbie Keane - what a striker!). Favourite book is Catcher In The Rye - very consoling when you're young.

AMBITIONS: In the future I'd like to go into Hollywood films but a nice part in EastEnders or Coronation Street wouldn't go a miss. It still feels strange being in Grange Hill even after all these years. When I first saw Stuart Organ (Mr Robson) It was weird cos I'd grown up watching him on Grange Hill, then all of a sudden he was there. Acting is all I've ever wanted to do - either that or be a poet!

Many thanks to John Hudson for his help.
