SWAPPING Bishopbriggs for the bright lights of Hollywood might be a dream for some – but it’s a reality for Steve Valentine.
The magician and actor is a success on TV and the big screen.
The latest series of his hit TV show – ‘I’m in the Band’ – began showing this week on Disney XD.
Steve, from Bishopbriggs, began his career at the age of seven in musical theatre and has been dividing his time between theatre, TV and film ever since.
He soon made the switch to the USA and has starred in the likes of ‘Will and Grace’, ‘Crossing Jordan’, ‘Mars Attacks’ and ‘Spiderman 3’.
Steve currently stars in the ‘I’m in the Band’ as Derek Jupiter, the clueless lead singer of “vintage” rock band Iron Weasel.
Co-star Logan Miller plays Tripp, who aims to help Iron Weasel make a big comeback.
However, the ageing rock stars have fallen so far from fame that they can’t even afford housing and are forced to live in Tripp’s spare room – with three of them squeezing into bunk beds!
Steve (44) recently visited the UK with Logan to promote the show.
‘I’m in the Band’ is currently showing on Disney XD.
