WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Born and raised in the UK, RUPERT EVERETT was educated in a Benedictine monastery. He left school at the age of fifteen and made his way to London to pursue theater. He eventually joined the avant-garde Citizens Theater Company of Glasgow, where he toured around Europe and England.

Everett's talents were appreciated by audiences and critics alike with his acclaimed performances in Nicholas Hytner's "The Madness of King George," Robert Altman's "Pret-a-Porter" ("Ready to Wear") and "My Best Friend's Wedding." His scene-stealing role as Julia Roberts' best friend garnered him a Golden Globe nomination, an American Comedy Award and a Blockbuster Entertainment Award.

Everett's upcoming projects include "An Ideal Husband" opposite Cate Blanchett and Julianne Moore, "Inspector Gadget" with Matthew Broderick and the comedy "The Next Best Thing" opposite Madonna.

Other films Everett has starred in include "Dunston Checks In," "Cemetery Man," "Another Country" (a role he originated on the stage in London), "Dance With A Stranger," "Duet For One," "Hearts of Fire," "The Comfort of Strangers," "The Chronicle of a Death Foretold," "Tolerance," "Inside Monkey Zetterland" and "The Man With The Gold Rimmed Glasses."

Last year, Everett appeared on stage in London in Tennessee Williams' "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore." His additional theater credits include Oscar Wilde's critically acclaimed "The Importance of Being Ernest," "Some Sunny Day," "Another Country," "Mass Appeal," "Don Juan" and "Chinchilla." His theater work in Glasgow includes "The Vortex," "Heartbreak House," "A Waste of Time," "Private Lives," "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The White Devil."

Everett is also the author of two novels, Hello Darling Are You Working? which is currently being adapted for the screen and The Hairdressers of St. Tropez, which is currently in its third reprint.
