Maloviere is an accomplished Actor, Character-Actor and Look-Alike who has undertaken many roles, notably those of William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens...
Ever impeccably attired in the style of a true English gentleman, he brings the pin-point precision and principled perfectionism of a bygone era to everything he undertakes, from speaking and writing to acting and modelling and, in a distant echo of his quarter-blood ‘White’-Russian heritage (albeit illegitimate), is habitually accompanied by ‘Countess’ Katyushka, fifth and final in a line of supremely-elegant borzoi (or Imperial Russian Wolfhound) companions extending over the past four decades.
As an actor and character-model, he has featured as Charles Dickens in the B.B.C. Television network-trailer for Dickens at 200 (Nov. 2011 - Feb. 2012) and the B.B.C.1 Christmas-Special Oliver (Dec. 2006); King Charles I on B.B.C.1’s Good Fortune; Nostradamus for B.B.C.2’s Timewatch; the Elizabethan poet-playwright Christopher Marlowe for the Channel 4 series Hell on Earth; the other (and slightly better-known) Elizabethan poet-playwright, William Shakespeare, in the cinematic drama-documentary Looking for Richard (which both starred and was directed by Al Pacino). He has also embodied Shakespeare in several advertising-campaigns, including those for Microsoft Office and B.T. Phonecards (see below), Sega Dreamcast and Chiltern Railways (shown above, left); and, most recently, on the steps of The Globe Theatre, London, in a feature on the 400th. Anniversary of the playwright’s death (on the 23rd. of April, 2016) for Channel One News on American television.
In other character-model/look-alike roles, he has played Leonardo da Vinci in The Da Vinci Shroud ~ Revealed (which was first shown on Channel Five in July, 2009, and repeated in March, 2012); Nicholas II, last Tsar of All the Russias, in the music-video From The Beginning, for the Disney animated feature Anastasia; and many other characters in advertising-campaigns for The British Tourist Authority, The Post Office, Häagen-Dazs, Bombardier Beer, Bonham’s, Boden and Simpson’s of Piccadilly, many of them (also) as Shakespeare. Additionally, he served as the sculptor’s model for Madame Tussaud’s wax-rendition of the nineteenth-century Australian national poet Henry Lawson, created for a permanent exhibition of antipodean culture in Sydney, New South Wales.
More recently, he was featured extensively in Transport for London's celebration of the London Underground's 150th. Anniversary (early 2013, as shown below); was the voice(s) of Shakespeare, Tolkien and C.S. Lewis for the ‘Quintessentially English’ station-idents for GOD TV (in Summer, 2015); appeared as William Shakespeare in person on the steps of the Globe Theatre, London, in a feature on the 400th. anniversary of the playwright’s death (on the 23rd. of April, 2016), for Channel One News on American television; and, most recently, contributed a café-cameo (see below) to ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’, the spectacular new sequel to J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them’ (itself the prequel to the seven-fold Harry Potter saga), this sequel starring Johnny Depp, Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law ~ the largest cinematic production outside Hollywood, on general release from the 16th. of November, 2018.
Maloviere has also appeared in various national and international television-commercials (including, among others, Sony Playstation, Sega Dreamcast, The Portuguese Ministry of Culture, German National Railways [with ‘super-model’ Cindy Crawford], Camelot’s National Lottery, British Telecom, Harvey’s Bristol Cream, Arthur Price of England, Lindt Swiss Chocolates and The Sun newspaper); music-videos (including Alfie with Mick Jagger, The Box Song for B. Tuff, Big Country’s Beautiful People, Babe for Take That! [in which he both appeared as ‘The Composer’ and created the calligraphy], and most recently I'm Not Your Toy for La Roux); and as a cat-walk model in numerous international fashion-shows staged in London, Paris, Milan, Düsseldorf, Tokyo and New York, some of which were also televised.
