Owen Newitt

Owen Newitt

If an organic parsnip was a person, it would be Owen Newitt. Earthy, lean, pale and rugged, he is a no-frills farmer with a blunt manner.

Despite being an eerie loner with a pallbearer's expression, he doesn't shy away from flirting with women - his alarming lack of smoothness making Hugo Horton look like James Bond. Owen is also known for never being on time for Parish Council meetings, though his excuses are impeccable ("Sorry I'm late - sheep exploded").

Played by Roger Lloyd-Pack

The son of a character actor named Charles Lloyd Pack (who appeared in quite a few Hammer horror films), Roger Lloyd Pack will always be best remembered for playing the flabbergastingly dim Trigger on Only Fools and Horses. But there are some other fascinating nuggets on his CV – did you know he appeared in the classic Hollywood musical Fiddler on the Roof, as well as alongside Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in Interview with the Vampire? You do now.
