Mr. Quarshie has appeared in numerous movies and television series. Most recently he had a long run as character Ric Griffin in the series Holby City. In addition to television and voice-acting, Mr. Quarshie is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and was awarded the 1986 London Critics Circle Theatre Award for Best Actor for his performance in The Great White Hope.

Star Wars Insider Magazine issue 40 has an interview wih Hugh Quarshie.

Mr. Quarshie seems willing to sign items sent to him, often inscribing them and sometimes including photos of his own. He has had several successes this past year, although I don’t think he gets his mail from this address on a regular basis. Some people have gotten responses in a week….others in months….depending on when he answers his mail. However, this is currently the best address to use.

Hugh Quarshie
c/o Holby City
BBC Elstree Centre
Clarendon Road

Should any celebrity wish their address not posted, please contact myself (darthskellington) or any site staff member and it will be removed immediately.




New Recruit
I received a great success today from Mr. Quarshie. He kindly signed my 10x8 and cards. He also included his own picture and a note apologising for the delay and answering a couple of my questions. Great stuff!
Took just over 4 months in the UK using the above address.
