Simric Yarrow was born (and given his, err, unique name, by his non-conformist parents) in the culturally independent state of Norfolk, known to the uninitiated as a flat county in the east of England. Being neither from the North or the South helped him develop a healthy disregard for the mainstream, but it still wasn't quite enough - so the new South Africa was a natural magnet for him. As an actor (at times) he often gets away with being taken for South African these days, which is as he generally prefers it. 'n Pom maak 'n plan, as no-one has said yet. Co-builder of a double-storey mud house on a suburban street, (Cape Town's "greenest B&B"), teacher, professional musician, and, when time allows, opinionated writer.
