HUGH DANCY (Luke Brandon) is a film, stage and television star with recent credits that include "The Jane Austen Book Club,” starring Maria Bello and Emily Blunt, "Evening” with Claire Danes and Toni Collette, and the independent film drama "Adam,” which was shown at Sundance this year.

A graduate of St. Peter's College, Oxford, Dancy's first acting job was in the series "Trial and Retribution II” for ITV, quickly followed by BBC's "Dangerfield” and Carlton's "Kavanagh QC.” In 1998, Dancy was cast in the title role of "David Copperfield” for Hallmark and TNT's production of the Charles Dickens novel.

Subsequent credits include the second series of Granada TV's hugely popular "Cold Feet,” BBC's adaptation of "Madame Bovary,” "Young Blades,” a story inspired by Dumas' "The Three Musketeers,” and "The Sleeping Dictionary” with Bob Hoskins, Jessica Alba, Brenda Blethyn and Emily Mortimer.

In 2001, Dancy starred in Jerry Bruckheimer's "Black Hawk Down,” directed by Ridley Scott and starring Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Orlando Bloom. He went on to film the crime thriller "Tempo” opposite Melanie Griffith and Rachel Leigh Cook, returning to the small screen with his titular role in the hit BBC's adaptation of George Elliot's "Daniel Deronda.” This was followed by Miramax's "Ella Enchanted,” opposite Anne Hathaway. Dancy also appeared in the Jerry Bruckheimer epic "King Arthur,” alongside Clive Owen and Keira Knightley.

Dancy played the leading role in Michael Caton-Jones' "Shooting Dogs” for BBC Films, followed by his Emmy Award®-nominated performance in the HBO and Channel Four joint venture "Elizabeth I,” starring Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons.

On stage, Dancy performed in "Billy and the Crab Lady” at Soho Theatre in England. He appeared in Nick Whitby's play "To the Green Fields Beyond,” directed by Sam Mendes at the Donmar Theatre, and more recently, he starred on Broadway in "Journey's End.”
