English actor who has portrayed the character of David Platt in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street since April 2000.

Before taking on the role of David, Shepherd had appeared in episodes of TV's Where the Heart Is and Clocking Off where he starred with his future Coronation Street screen sister Tina O'Brien.

Shepherd has taken time out of Coronation Street to do theatre work, including the role of Riff in a production of West Side Story as part of Stage 84 The Yorkshire School of Performing Arts. He has also appeared in Oliver! at Bradford's Alhambra theatre.

In 2007, Shepherd won the Best Bad Boy Award at the Inside Soap Awards and in 2008, he won 'Best Villain' at the British Soap Awards.

Shepherd uses his middle initial in his stage name as there is already a well-known British actor named Jack Shepherd.

He is also a contributor to the topical show Grouchy Young Men, a spin-off of the show Grumpy Old Men, on the British version of Comedy Central.

Shepherd is engaged to his girlfriend Lauren Shippey, a hair and make-up artist (b. 15 Dec. 1987), with whom he has two children, Nyla Raè born 2009 and Reuben born 2013. He had another child after an affair with glamour model Sammy Milewski in 2010, Greyson James born January 2011. Greyson James suffers from a rare childhood disorder that causes him temporary paralysis on one side of his body. Known as Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC), it is a rare neurological disorder.
