THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL
DAVID MORRISSEY (Duke of Norfolk) is considered one of the most versatile British actors of his generation, having performed in an eclectic range of productions for film, television and stage.
Morrissey was most recently seen in The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep. He has completed filming an adaptation of "Sense and Sensibility," playing the role of Colonel Brandon, which is due to be broadcast in two parts, on April 30 and May 6, 2008, on PBS.
Morrissey has appeared in some of the most popular and critically acclaimed British television dramas, including "Our Mutual Friend," "Clocking Off," "Holding On" (which earned him a prestigious Royal Television Society nomination), the six-part BBC political drama "State of Play" (a role for which he received a BAFTA nomination), and one of Channel Four's most controversial dramas, director Stephen Frears' "The Deal," in which he played Gordon Brown and for which he won an Royal Television Society Award. Last year, Morrissey starred in "Viva Blackpool," a 90-minute program for BBC1, which also aired in the United States on BBC America. The series received a Golden Globe® nomination.
Television audiences most recently saw Morrissey starring in "Meadowlands," a seven-part series for Showtime. This psychologically gripping drama follows a family as they enter into a protective custody program, and explores the true nature of identity.
Morrissey's accomplished television and stage performances brought him to the attention of the film world and he has gone on to play roles in a range of films including Hilary and Jackie, Some Voices, Born Romantic, Captain Correlli's Mandolin, Miramax's Derailed, Stephen Woolley's Stoned, and The Reaping.
In addition to his acting career, Morrissey has founded his own production company, Tubedale Films, through which he has directed short films and television projects in the UK. Most recently, he directed his first feature film, The Pool, which is set in his home city of Liverpool.
