Until his role as Commodore James Norrington in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” JACK DAVENPORT was probably best known to American audiences for his role as Peter Smith- Kingsley in the critically acclaimed "The Talented Mr. Ripley.” Davenport made his film debut in Mike Leigh's "Career Girls.” His other credits include "Fierce Creatures,” "Tale of the Mummy,” "The Wisdom of Crocodiles,” "The Bunker” and "The Wedding Date.” He also appeared and executive produced two acclaimed short films, "Ticks” and "Subterrain.”

On television, Davenport has been seen in the series "Ultraviolet” and "Coupling,” as well as "The Real Jane Austen,” co-starring Anna Chancellor; "The Wyvern Mystery,” with Derek Jacobi and Iain Glen for the BBC; two series of the BBC's award-winning "This Life”; and the miniseries "Dickens,” in which he portrayed Charles Dickens' son, and the recently completed "Mary Bryant.”

Davenport has appeared on radio in "A Clockwork Orange” and "The Cruel Sea.” He also participated in a special recording of "Man and Superman” with Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench and Juliet Stevenson to mark 30 years of radio plays.

He was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for his role in the critically acclaimed production of "The Servant” at the Lyric Theatre and recently appeared in London's West End in his much-praised oneman show entitled "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.”

Born in London, England, Davenport studied literature and film at the University of East Anglia. He is the son of actors Maria Aitken and Nigel Davenport and is married to actress Michelle Gomez.
