THE QUEEN

Recognised as one of the most talented of the new generation of British actors, MICHAEL SHEEN has proved himself to be equally accomplished on stage and screen. His performance as Tony Blair in THE QUEEN allows him to reprise the role he played earlier, in the TV drama The Deal (2003). It marks his third collaboration with Stephen Frears; he made his feature film debut in the director's MARY REILLY where he played Dr. Jekyll's footman. Other notable feature film credits include THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMAN'S APOCALYPSE (2005), KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (2004), LAWS OF ATTRACTION (2003), BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS (2003), UNDERWORLD (2002), FOUR FEATHERS (2002) and WILDE (1997).

On television, he recently starred in Fantabulosa as actor and diarist Kenneth Williams for the BBC and his small screen successes include the award-winning Dirty Filthy Love for Channel 4. Born in Wales, Michael grew up in Port Talbot, the industrial town renowned for producing Richard Burton and Anthony Hopkins. He trained at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where in his second year, he won the coveted Laurence Olivier Bursary for outstanding performances.

Michael's stage career took off in 1991 when, whilst still a student at RADA, he starred opposite Vanessa Redgrave in When She Danced at the West End. His stage performances in productions such as Romeo and Juliet, Peer Gynt, Henry V and Look Back in Anger have consistently gained him critical accolades and awards.

He came to wider international attention in 1999, when he starred in the Broadway revival of Peter Hall's Amadeus. Nominated three times for the Olivier Best Actor Award, he received Best Actor Awards from the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards and London Theatre Critics Awards for his performance as Caligula at the Donmar Warehouse in 2003.
