John Hardie



John was born at 2.30pm on Saturday 14th November 1970, thus preventing his father from getting to Pittodrie for the Dons’ only home win over old firm opposition in an otherwise miserable season. As a partner in a firm of solicitors he practices (in the fullest sense of the word) law. A debonair man about town, a near professional singer, a noted sailor, and a martial arts expert; he’s represented them all in court.

John began his career at Broomhill Primary where his ‘Second King’ in the nativity remains definitive. While there, he beat off competition from every other 4 year old actor in Aberdeen to win the role of Wee Julian, the weak bladdered page boy in the ‘Scotland the What?’ sketch, Mary’s Wedding.


TV work includes oddly dressed teenager in BBC Scotland’s Open to Question, interviewing Jim Kerr of Simple Minds, who used to be married to Patsy Kensit, who was in Lethal Weapon 2 with Mel Gibson. Also on the small screen, John can be seen as Usher (nae the pop star) in the Dogme-style Greg & Susan’s Wedding Video.


On Radio he enjoyed a recurring role as Theatre Critic on Northsound 2. Asked to rate a production of The Roy Orbison Story out of 10, and unable to resist temptation, he gave it The Big O. A flood of complaints from Orbison fans cut his broadcasting career tragically short.

John lives in a wee world of his own and with Gayle, his inexplicably patient wife.
