Calvin Goldspink

Calvin Goldspink (born January 24, 1989) is an English actor and former child pop star. He first came to notice as a member of the juvenile manufactured pop group S Club Juniors (the group changed its name to S Club 8 after S Club 7 split up).

After being born in Great Yarmouth, he moved with his family to Aberdeen. For three years running, Goldspink won the Popjustice readers' poll award for "Most Inappropriately Fanciable Popstar". He attended Cults Academy in Aberdeen.

In January 2007 he moved to LA after being spotted at Speech Level Singing Camp by a lady who is now his manager. He got the part of 'Oliver Banks' after his manager told him to go to audtions during pilot season when he had time off from recording his first solo album. 'Life is Wild' was his first audtion.

Goldspink has the role of twin "Oliver Banks", in the US pilot of the hit British series Wild at Heart re-named Life Is Wild for The CW network. He filmed the pilot for the 45 minute show on location in South Africa at the end of February. The show airs on Sundays at 8 pm on The CW in the United States.
