Alfred Hoffman is our Shopkeeper!

We are delighted to reveal that the Shopkeeper in The Last Bookshop will be played by the wonderful Alfred Hoffman.

Alfred has been acting for over half a century, so it is a real honour for us to welcome him into our production. Throughout his long career, he’s appeared in everything from Dixon of Dock Green to classic ’80s sci-fi series The Tripods, and we just know he’s going to make the perfect Shopkeeper.

Over the last few days we’ve had a couple of read-throughs with Alfred and seen him quite simply bring the character to life. He’s also had us in fits of laughter, and kept us enrapt with anecdotes. We can’t wait to get him in front of the camera.

To give you a little taster, here’s the Hoff himself playing an antiques dealer in a recent advert for Aviva insurance…

And if that’s whetted your appetite, have a look at the various delights of his most recent showreel…
