Maxwell Caulfield first set us swooning as the lead in Grease 2. The Glaswegian-born actor switched to TV, playing bad-boy Miles Colby in Dynasty, and working in the gritty drama The Boys Next Door. Then his star faded and for a while he appeared only in low-budget schlock until his portrayal of Dr Brodie in Casualty brought about a comeback. Though best-known for populist TV work, he is also an acclaimed stage actor.
