Malcolm Davies


1st Assistant Director

With a list of credits on comedies, period, and primetime, ratings-busting dramas, the list of broadcasters and networks Mal hasn’t worked for is shorter than the list of those he has. Calm and unflappable, he knows how to work to get the best out of cast and Production alike, and his reputation as a First AD has now become almost unparalleled.
