DAVID Caves is the Northern Irish actor who’s currently making waves in Silent Witness.
But, what else do we know about the star? And what else has he been in? Here’s what we know…
Rex Features David Caves plays Jack Hodgson in Silent Witness.
Who is David Caves?
David is from Northern Ireland and was educated at the Campbell College, Belfast.
David’s parents and his uncle were all teachers.
David – who studied modern languages, including French and German, at the University of St Andrews – intended to become a teacher.
But after working as a teacher in France, he found he had “lost the drive for the academic side of things” and ended up training at LAMDA, where he immersed himself in plays and musicals while studying.
He said: ” “I found I loved this medium and wanted to look into it more, to see what was out there and what drama school was about.
“So I did some research and decided to have a go, not really expecting anything to happen. I was naive and did not know how tough it was. I thought I was probably not good enough but something inside me told me I should have a go, so I did.”

Salma Hayek Names Three Billboards Actress Frances Mcdormand Winner Of Best Actor Instead Of Gary Oldman At The Baftas
SALMA Hayek stunned Bafta attendees by announcing actress Frances McDormand as Best Actor instead of Gary Oldman.
The actress made the joke as she presented the award for the Best Actor category – and couldn’t help but make a pointed jab at the gender separation with two separate jokes.
Salma Hayek made an joke about celebrating men in a season that has been about elevating women
Salma, who is an active voice in the Time’s Up movement currently sweeping Hollywood, arrived on stage in a black gown in honour of the award’s season ‘black out’ to raise awareness for the campaign.
Taking to the microphone, she said: “On this very important and legendary year for women, I am here to celebrate…men.”
As the audience laughed, the actress softened and ahead of presenting the award, said: “This is an extraordinary collection of actors at the very top of their game, and emerging talent who are already producing world class work.”
However, as the moment of truth came, Salma used the moment to award who she felt was the right person for the award – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star, Frances McDormand.
As the winner was announced, Salma joked that Frances should’ve won

As the crowd erupted with laughter, Salma then quickly added: “Ahhh, just kidding! Gary Oldman for The Darkest Hour.”
Gary beat out Daniel Kaluuya, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jamie Bell and Timothee Chalamet to take home the gong after playing Sir Winston Churchill in historical biopic, Darkest Hour.
Rex Features Frances and Gary later posted together after both bagging wins
While Frances didn’t win the best actor award (granted, even though she wasn’t nominated for it), Frances and the team behind Three Billboards earned the most awards of the night, taking home five of the top gongs.
As expected, Frances bagged the Best Actress award for her role in the show – and she used her speech to explain why she wasn’t wearing black.
Rex Features Luckily Gary took the moment all in good fun and beamed as he collected his winners

Joanna Lumley Makes Hilarious Jab At The Oscars At The Baftas After Last Year’s Legendary Envelope Mix-up
JOANNA Lumley and the Bafta team made a major dig at the Oscars after performing a skit to send up the epic blunder that took place at the rival ceremony last year.
The presenter, who hosted the show for the first time this year, made a scripted jab at the 2017 Oscars when a mix-up threw the show into chaos.
Joanna made a pointed jibe at the Oscars blunder that defined last year’s awards season
After Lily James and Gemma Arterton presented the award for Best Visual Effects, Joanna returned to the stage and commented on how they had left their envelope on the table.
“Oh, they’ve left the envelope. This could be awkward – we don’t want any embarrassing mix-ups later!,” she announced.
The cast of Cirque du Soleil’s Ovo then appeared on stage to take the envelope away, performing acrobatics as they napped the gold card and scurried off again.
Joanna then deadpanned: “That’s lovely. A little OTT – even for the Baftas – but thank you Ovo!”
The cast of Ovo were quick to take the envelope away
The moment was a direct reference to the 2017 Oscars – when an envelope mix-up meant that La La Land was revealed as the winner of Best Film instead of Moonlight, the real winner.
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and in a moment of confusion, read out the wrong name.
As the scenes unfolded, the team behind the confusion stormed the stage, and it resulted in the La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz having to announce the correct winner on stage, after already giving the acceptance speech.

After the embarrassing blunder Beatty returned to the microphone to say: “I want to tell you what happened, I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you.
“I wasn’t trying to be funny. This is Moonlight for best picture.”
