JEREMY NORTHAM (Harry Sawyer) has recently emerged as one of Britain's finest actors. Northam was the recipient of the prestigious Olivier Award
-- the British equivalent of the Tony -- for outstanding newcomer for his 1990 performance as Edward Voysey, the moral pivot of the Royal National Theatre revival of the 1905 play, "The Voysey Inheritance."
His recent films include Miramax Films' critically acclaimed "An Ideal
Husband" opposite Rupert Everett, Minnie Driver, Cate Blanchett and Julianne
Moore; "The Winslow Boy" opposite Nigel Hawthorne and Rebecca Pidgeon and
"The Misadventures of Margaret." This summer, he will begin production on
Miramax's "The Golden Bowl," a Merchant/Ivory film also starring Anjelica
Huston, Nick Nolte and Uma Thurman to be directed by James Ivory.
Northam first came to the attention of American audiences as Jack Devlin opposite Sandra Bullock in Irwin Winkler's film "The Net." He then starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in the critically acclaimed surprise hit "Emma" and appeared in both the science-fiction thriller "Mimic," opposite Mira Sorvino, and Steven Spielberg's "Amistad." Earlier credits include "Voices from a Locked Room," "Wuthering Heights" and "Carrington."
In theatre, Northam received wide recognition for his title-role performance in "Hamlet" at the Olivier Theatre. He starred in the Royal National Theatre's production of "The School for Scandal," in William Wycherley's "Country Wife" at the Royal Shakespeare Company, where he also appeared in "Love's Labours Lost" and "The Gift of the Gorgon." At the West End he appeared in "Three Sisters" and "The Way of the World".
