A highly regarded young British actor, MICHAEL SHEEN's popularity and critical acclaim in the theatre is quickly translating to the big screen.

Classically trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he won the SWET/Laurence Olivier Bursary Award, Sheen made his stage debut in the West End production of "When She Danced” for director Robert Ackerman. Soon after, under the direction of Declan Donellan, Sheen was nominated for the Ian Charleson Award for his performance in "Don't Fool With Love.” 

Sheen complemented his theatrical career with roles in such films as Oliver Parker's Othello; Gilbert's Wilde with Jude Law; and Stephen Frears's Mary Reilly, starring Julia Roberts and John Malkovich. His most notable theatrical success, playing Mozart in Sir Peter Hall's "Amadeus,” brought him from the West End to Broadway, as well as a nomination for the Outer Critics Circle Award. 

Hot off the success of "Amadeus,” Sheen earned his first major role in an American studio film, Shekhar Kapur's The Four Feathers, starring opposite Heath Ledger and Wes Bentley for Miramax/Paramount. Following that, he landed the lead role in Miramax's upcoming film, Heartlands, for director Damien O'Donnell. Last year he starred in Underworld opposite Kate Beckinsale, and appeared in Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things and Richard Donner's Timeline. 

Most recently, he has received critical acclaim for his tour-de-force performance last Spring as Caligula at London's Donmar Warehouse Theatre. In addition to being nominated for the prestigious Olivier Award, he has won both the Evening Standard Award and the Critics Circle Award for Best Actor.

Sheen spends his time between Los Angeles and London.
