Quietly but steadily Aaron Cobham has been building his career, taking on a range for roles that have emphasized his diversity as an actor. Born and raised in Manchester, Aaron is one of a group of talented new emerging screen actors that have come out of the North West in recent years. He playing the role as Sam in Wait for Me will surely establish him as a leading man. In Sam he plays a man of few words and his performance has been praised for “conveying a lot of emotion and inner turmoil via facial expressions and body language”.
Aaron’s first screen role was playing the role of Harvey in the long running British soap Hollyoaks and he has been on our screens since, playing character roles in long running British series such as Coronation Street, Doctors and Moving On. He specializes in playing troubled characters but took a change in direction when he played Jules Watson, in the most recent season of the iconic Manchester based rom-com series “Cold Feet”.
His break through role came playing of Oviedo, the Queen Catherine’s bodyguard and a close companion in the award-winning STARZ series “The Spanish Princess”, a historic drama based on the life of Henry VIII’s first wife Catherine of Aragon. Cobham then went on to win an award for ‘Best Actor’ for his performance in the 2023 thriller ‘Tales of Babylon’, a film following four different hitmen intertwined in crime, money and violence in London.
