Alongside music, acting has always been a part of Dorian's life. Coming from a theatrical family, it was a small leap to the screen, with major roles in BBC productions. He played Prince Edward to Ron Cook's Richard III in Jane Howell's production; the title role, Jude in Lesley Bruce's BBC Play For Today, opposite Rachel Kempson, James Laurenson and Gabriella Lloyd.
People of a certain generation may remember Dorian's role as the delinquent French exchange student, Jean-Paul, who smoked gauloise, snogged Faye, and crashed a stolen car in the year Grange Hill won a BAFTA.
He recently returned to the Thespian fold with a brief yet revealing appearance in Stephen Fears' Oscar nominated Mrs Henderson Presents. Dorian played Christian the house pianist for the Windmill Theatre and can be seen and heard accompanying Will Young, Judi Dench, and generally frolicking with the Windmill girls.
