John is very proud to have narrated the extraordinary World War 2 Historical novel "Beneath Another Sun" by Robert Radcliffe". It is a harrowing but uplifting story. It has garnered wonderful reviews in the UK and is highly recommended.

John plays College Dean John Buttner in the Anglo/ French/US production pilot "One Of A Kind". Here he is...

The 2014 Toscars (The BritsinLA parodies of the Oscars) was a great success, with an amazing show enjoyed by a packed house at the famous Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. John wrote and produced "Knobraska", a 5 minute parody of "Nebraska" which was very well received:

... Special mention must also go to Clement von Franckenstein for his turn as Woody in John Mawson's "Knobraska" – which (at least for us) was the standout performance of the night. Everything about this black and white parody of Alexander Payne’s road-trip movie, from the performances to the cinematography and director Chris Devlin’s understated, realistic style, elevated it head and shoulders above its competitors."
Nick Stark, The British Weekly.

Here's the original "Nebraska" trailer, followed by "Knobraska", for you to enjoy!

John has co-starred in the Network dramas "Criminal Minds", Season 8, Ep 20 "Alchemy" and "Rake", Season 1 Ep 4 "Cancer".
