Jason Salkey is a British actor whose face has continually popped up on small and large screens over the last twenty odd years. The first big job he landed was a huge beer commercial campaign for ‘Miller Lite’ that made his face instantly recognisable to every television viewer in the U.K.
He followed the normal career path of a jobbing actor, including roles in The Bill, Bergerac, and Boon followed by countless other TV roles. In the spring of 1992, he walked into the offices of Hubbard Casting in London’s Soho, to audition for a little known story called Sharpe. He landed the role of Rifleman Harris in one of British television’s most cherished shows and it was to take up his time for the best part of the next five years. It also began a connection to the toy soldier/re-enactor/war-gaming world that has lasted to this day.
While the Sharpe role as Rifleman Harris has made Jason’s face universally known, he has appeared in many films including Memphis Belle, The Russia House, The Steal, Fifth Element, Turn of the Screw, Fairy Tale: A True Story, About a Boy, In America, Road to Guantanamo and The Infidel.
In the years since finishing Sharpe, Jason has taken the huge amount of video footage he shot on location with Sharpe and turned it into a series of films documenting the behind-the-scenes adventures. Vast legions of Sharpe fans around the world have been entertained by the ‘Harris Project’. It culminates with the filming of Sharpe’s Waterloo; and we all know what happened there.
Jason, AKA Rifleman Harris, will be presenting the prizes at this year’s Euromilitaire 2015. While at the show, Jason will have available his video diaries plus numerous photos he took while filming on Sharpe. In the meantime, Jason can be followed on his website, www.riflemanharris.co.uk
Keep watching our site over the coming weeks as we confirm more details of what will be planned.
