British director MIKE NEWELL's wide-ranging output has alternated between London and Hollywood, from film to TV.

A Cambridge graduate, Newell began directing at age 23, working on numerous plays for TV. His television feature "The Man in the Iron Maskā€ (1977) served as the springboard to international success. His theatrical debut The Awakening (1980) began to cement Newell's reputation for getting the best results from his actors. He worked in many genres with films such as Dance with a Stranger (1984) and Enchanted April (1991), amongst many others. In 1994, he made Four Weddings and a Funeral, the record-breaking romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell.

Returning to America, Newell made the Mafia thriller Donnie Brasco (1997), delivering outstanding performances from Johnny Depp and Al Pacino, followed up by films such as Pushing Tin (1999) and Mona Lisa Smile (2003). As well as directing, Newell served as executive producer on several projects, including Traffic (2000), and High Fidelity (2000), before directing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), the first British director to helm an installment of this series.
