Joe Duttine: Acting bio

Joe moved to London to pursue his acting career, studying at the prestigious London school, Drama Centre.

His uncle, John Duttine, is also an actor. So there is a chance he was inspired by him to pursue his dream.


Joe became a follower of Stanislavski’s system of method acting whilst at Drama Centre, as did fellow student and friend John Simm. But there’s certainly nothing method about his role in Trawlermen: Celebs At Sea – at least we don’t see Joe battling the waves!

He made his TV debut in 1992, starring in Between the Lines. And since then, he has gone on to star in over 25 television shows.

What has Joe Duttine been in?

Joe has regularly starred alongside pal John Simm in hit series such as Life On Mars, The Village and Scott and Bailey.

He had some minor roles before then in Waterloo Road and also in Shameless, playing Cameron Donnelly. He also starred as DS Carr in Coronation Street, before they invited him to reprise a different and more central role in 2013.

Since 2013, Joe has played the role of Tim Metcalfe on Corrie, which is probably the work he is best known for.

He has also previously had narration experience, working on Channel 5’s On Benefits series.
