Life and career

Hayman was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He began his acting career at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow after studying at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. Hayman debuted as Hamlet, the protagonist in Beaumarchais' The Marriage of Figaro and Al Capone. In 1982's television film A Sense of Freedom, Jimmy Boyle played the notorious Barlinnie Prisoner turned sculptor.

Hayman's focus after this film for television was mainly on actor roles rather than the lead role. His long list of film credits includes appearances in Sid and Nancy (1986), Bruce Willis in The Jackal (1997), Kevin Spacey in Ordinary Decent Criminal (2000), and Pierce Brosnan in The Tailor of Panama (2001). He appeared in Hope and Glory (1987), directed by John Boorman, as well as in The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008).

Hayman is best known for his role as Chief Supt. Michael Walker of Lynda La Plante's long-running crime thriller Trial & Retribution, which ran for twelve series from 1997 to 2009. He has a distinct scar over his left eye, which he used as character makeup, as well as a shaved head for his role in the series.

Hayman has also excelled at directing film and television productions. A study of convicts in Barlinnie Prison (1990) focuses on Larry Winters, a convicted murderer. The film was entered into the 40th Berlin International Film Festival. Helen Mirren appeared in The Hawk (1993), a woman who starts to suspect that her husband is a serial murderer. He appeared in The Near Room, a film about child violence and corruption shot in Glasgow.

Hayman appeared in an episode of BBC series Robin Hood in 2009. In September 2011, Hayman produced a documentary resurrecting the unsolved murders of Glasgow serial killer Bible John, who murdered three young women in the late 1960s. In Search of Bible John, the documentary looked at the facts that connects Peter Tobin to the murders.

In the BBC2 version of Henry IV, Part I, Hayman played Earl of Worcester.

Hayman appeared as Chris in the 2011 revival of Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie at the Donmar Theatre, London. In 2012, he appeared in King Lear alongside George Costigan as the lead.

Hayman hosted a BBC Two documentary in March 2014 looking at how shipbuilding industry along the river Clyde and its four resulting ships; Cutty Sark, CS Mackay-Bennett, CSS Robert E. Lee, and HMS Hood all contributed to the Commonwealth.

Hayman hosted a BBC Two documentary in July 2016 highlighting Scapa Flow's crucial role in World War I.

Captain Jack McCleery and his role, alongside his colleagues, in pioneering Royal Navy naval aviation with their trial flight on HMS Furious and the subsequent Tondern raid in November 2018.

In 1992, Hayman received the City of Glasgow's gold medal for outstanding contributions to the performing arts. Spirit Aid, a non-profit charity devoted to children of the world whose lives have been stricken by war, genocide, violence, violence, or a lack of opportunities both locally and abroad, was established in 2001. Hayman is now Head of Operations of the charity, which runs humanitarian relief programs from Kosovo to Guinea-Bissau, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Malawi, and South Africa.

David Jr., Sammy, and Sean are among David Hayman's three sons.


Buoy band on the crest of a wave: KATE MUIR reviews Fisherman's Friends - One And AllĀ 

www.dailymail.co.uk, August 19, 2022
KATE MUIR: Fisherman's Friends: One And All (pictured) brings the corny back to Cornwall in an enjoyable, sea-shanty-fuelled film based on the true story of a group of folk singers. The first musical comedy in 2019 featured the journey of the Fisherman's Friends from their home village of Port Isaac to top-ten international fame. This second instalment is less about 'hoo-ray and up she rises' and more about 'what shall we do with the drunken sailor?' That's James Purefoy, who once again plays Jim, the gruff, charismatic leader of the singers. Jim drowns his sorrows on a regular basis, traumatised by the death of his lobster-fisherman father Jago (David Hayman) who formed the original band. The rest of the Fishermen are also struggling with fame on tour. We see a rumbustious night at the Grimsby Docks Social Club where one of the older singers asks a female journalist whether she likes 'meat in her pasty' and gets a glass of wine in his face. Meanwhile, Rowan (Sam Swainsbury), the handsome married barman from the village, is almost suffocated by ladies in pink at a Northern hen night.
