Ramon Tikaram

Ramon Pramod Junior Tikaram (born May 16, 1967 in Singapore) is a British stage and screen actor of Indo-Fijian and Malaysian descent. Tikaram is the son of Fijian-Indian British Army soldier Pramod Tikaram and Sarawakian mother Fatimah Rohani. His younger sister is singer-songwriter Tanita Tikaram. Tikaram is the great-nephew of Sir Moti Tikaram who was the first Lord Chief Justice of an independent Fiji and the world's longest serving national ombudsman. After attending six primary schools in the United Kingdom and Germany, Tikaram was sent to the Duke of York's Royal Military School in Dover, Kent in 1978. Achieving proficiency in all things military including firearms and the tuba, his early affinity for the theatre was inspired by legendary drama teacher Ben Johnson, himself a former pupil. Tikaram has three children and now divides his time between London and Wiltshire. After attending the National Youth Theatre in 1982 and after appearing in Tom Stoppard's After Magritte at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1984, Tikaram decided to read an economics and politics degree at the University of London, switching to English at the University of Kent.
