Updates on what the Knightmare cast is up to outside the dungeon.

Cliff Barry will be appearing in that excellent programme TimeBusters, enjoying a belated honeymoon and then envisages a hopefully short period of waiting for the phone to ring.

Hugo Myatt is appearing in House On The Cliff in Yeovil from September 27th and then from just before Christmas stars as King Rat in the panto Dick Whittington at the Princess Theatre in Torquay.

Treguard the Dungeon Master, played by Hugo Myatt. As seen in Series 8 of Knightmare (1994).

Bill Cashmore (Snapper-Jack/Bhal-Shebah/Honesty Bartram) has had many TV appearances in programmes such as The Bill, All Creatures Great and Small, Dancing Queen, Meat and Grange Hill. He works in a comedy double act with Andy Powrie and they are regular guests on ITV's Gimme 5. Bill writes comedy for stage and TV and has appeared at many theatres up and down the country.

Playing Snapper-Jack in Knightmare has been great fun and very scary.

Joanne Heywood (Stiletta) has appeared in many stage productions including the world debut of Scrooge - The Musical. She has also made many TV appearances in programmes like First of the Summer Wine and Grace and Favour for the BBC and The New Statesman for Yorkshire.

Jackie Sawiris (Majida) is currently working on a devised play based on a Spanish story from the 1500s for Half-Masked productions. This will be toured in the Cambridge/Peterborough area from September to October. She will then probably work on a Gothic Horror film in the autumn. Next year she will be assistant director on a Theatre project with Bristol Old Vic and German Theatre School students. The play is about the Holocaust.

After Knightmare Series 8, Clifford Norgate has just recorded a children's audio book called Earthfasts by William Mayne. He is also involved with the new Norwich Playhouse.
