But then, as he got older after several years of climbing trees, falling in rivers, and building rafts, the place did not offer him as much. And so, he started reading.
His undying love for arts, he got it from his parents, who are "quite" arty. His father refused to watch anything that was made after 1948. He thus grew up watching Ealing comedies, anything that was black and white.
Writing and acting is something that comes to Tim Downie naturally. He began writing and directing short films while enrolled in drama school, during his twenties. He trained at Mountview Academy of Theatrical Arts in North London.
