Alan Roots

Big Al made his Shadows debut in their 1999 Edinburgh revue Seven Deadly Sinners plus One Free.

On the Royal Mile he was memorably snapped shinning up a lamppost in red tights dressed as Satan. But enough about his private life. He has since appeared in 15 other Shadows productions, either acting or singing in variety shows.

Alan hopes to eventually make a return to the stage after night shifts meant a hiatus since 2011.
