John Shackley

Date of Birth: 8th July 1965
Country of Birth: UK



The absurdly handsome John Shackley is best remembered for his lead role as Will Parker in the BBC TV series "The Tripods" (from whence the Profile picture on this page is taken). Born in Liverpool, John went to college and earned a diploma in Theatre Studies, before joining the Liverpool Young Actors Co-operative, where he was fortunate enough to be noticed by film director Gordon Flemyng, who offered him a minor part in the upcoming Yorkshire Television miniseries "One Summer" which he was directing. A short time later, he was selected from around 400 odd applicants for the lead role of Will Parker in "The Tripods". After retiring from acting, John pursued a career as an hotelier, first in Austria, and then in Chile. He also married and had children of his own.
