John Michie plays DI Robbie Ross in the UK’s longest-running crime drama, Taggart, and was both executive producer and presenter of STV’s recent Made in Scotland series. He has also been a presenter on factual series such as Murder Capital on The Crime & Investigation Network and Highlands, also on STV. Michie is also the voice behind two Windfall Films series, Big, Bigger, Biggest and Monster Moves. Here, Michie shares with realscreen a few things that you may not know about him.

1. I have a mild obsession with the number 56 and look for it, or multiples of it, nearly every day!

2. When I was traveling in Australia, I sold paintings door-to-door. My line was ‘I’m a student at The Royal Academy of Art doing a thesis on Australian landscape’. I was the number one salesman…

3. I love cheesy party dance routines like ‘Gimme Some,’ or Steps’ ’5678′ and Whigfield’s ‘Saturday Night’ and I hit the dance floor whenever I get the chance!
