Personal Quote:

"Perhaps being a character actor on radio was, in retrospect, the best training I could get". See more »

Trivia:

After discovering that there was already a "David White" registered with Equity, he took the name "David Jason". It has long and popularly been rumoured that the name "Jason" came from his twin brother who had died in infancy. This is incorrect. His twin brother died without being named, and he chose "David Jason" as his stage name from his favourite book at school Jason and the Argonauts (1963). See more »
