Wow, I didn't know that either. I think that's the norm with actors. You can't have the same names if you're both in the same profession which is I think to avoid confusion.

Yes, it would. Some actors have a middle initial to make their name a bit different. Another thing is changing one letter in their name - I can only think of one example right now - David Walliams, who used to be called Williams.

Oh wow. I often wondered if that's really his family name cause I've never encountered a family name like that.

yeah that would be another way to work around it. I would probably go the middle name route before I would change my name entirely.

And then there are those complicated names where you just have to have a middle initial like Michael J. Fox.

New photo of David for "Hang Ups" (new comedy on Channel 4 UK):
