Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Caterham, Surrey, England, UK
At age 15, ran away from home, intending to write a book; got as far as the South of France and, starving, turned to the British consul for help. His father wired him money so he could return home. Came to prominence in England starring in the 1991 BBC2 drama The Men's Room. Won BAFTAs for his work in Love Actually and the British miniseries State of Play (both 2003). Made his Broadway debut opposite Julianne Moore in 2006's The Vertical Hour. Is a huge Rolling Stones fan. Suffers from Dupuytren's contracture, a hereditary condition that has left the two last fingers on both hands permanently bent toward the palms. Provides narration for the popular Animal Planet series Meerkat Manor.
