THE END OF THE AFFAIR

THE END OF THE AFFAIR is STEPHEN REA's eighth film with director Neil Jordan and his seventh film with producer Stephen Woolley.

Born in Belfast and educated at Queen's University, Rea began his acting career at Dublin's Abbey Theatre before making an equally good impression on the London stage. He formed his own acting company, the Field Day Theatre Company, with Irish playwright Brian Friel in 1980 and over the next decade spent five months a year working with the company, acting in every production except THREE SISTERS, which he directed.

His theatre work represents a hugely impressive range of classical and modern plays in Ireland and in London (mainly at the Royal Court Theatre and the Royal National Theatre). Rea's performance in the Hampstead Theatre's production of SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME eventually moved to Broadway and earned Rea a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor.

His first leading film role was Neil Jordan's debut, ANGEL (1982). Jordan's THE CRYING GAME (1992) provided Rea's major breakthrough, for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and The National Society of Film Critics Award. Rea's films have been many and varied, among them Mike Leigh's LIFE IS SWEET, Robert Altman's PRET A PORTER, TROJAN EDDIE and CITIZEN X. Rea's performance in HBO's CRIME OF THE CENTURY garnered him a Golden Globe nomination in 1996. In addition, Rea completed four more films for Neil Jordan-INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, MICHAEL COLLINS, THE BUTCHER BOY and IN DREAMS.

Recently, Rea gave a critically acclaimed performance opposite Sarah Polley in GUINEVERE.
