DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS?

HUGH GRANT (Paul Morgan) is an award-winning actor who has received acclaim for his work in a wide range of film roles. Grant first gained international stardom in 1994 when he starred in Mike Newell's comedy smash Four Weddings and a Funeral. Grant won a Golden Globe® Award and a British Academy Award for his performance in that film, opposite Andie MacDowell. He has since earned two more Golden Globe® nominations: one for his work in the 1999 romantic comedy hit Notting Hill, opposite Julia Roberts; and more recently for his work in the Weitz brothers' acclaimed comedy drama About a Boy. In addition, in 2006, Grant was awarded an honorary César Award for Lifetime Achievement. The César Award is France's national film award. Recipients are selected by the members of the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinema.

Hailing from England, Grant attended Oxford University and made his feature film debut in Privileged. His breakthrough role came in the 1987 Merchant-Ivory film Maurice, based on E.M. Forster's novel. Grant won the Best Actor Award at the Venice Film Festival for his portrayal of a young man confronting his homosexuality in the Edwardian age. That led to leading roles in such films as The Dawning, with Anthony Hopkins; Ken Russell's The Lair of the White Worm; Roman Polanski's Bitter Moon; Night Train to Venice; and the award-winning Merchant-Ivory drama The Remains of the Day, with Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson.

In addition to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and About a Boy, Grant's additional film credits include the British comedy An Awfully Big Adventure, for director Mike Newell; the critically acclaimed The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain, written and directed by Christopher Monger; Ang Lee's Oscar®-winning adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility; Chris Columbus' comedy Nine Months, with Julianne Moore and Robin Williams; Woody Allen's Small Time Crooks and Michael Apted's thriller Extreme Measures, with Gene Hackman, which he also produced. 

Grant previously worked with director Marc Lawrence on the romantic comedies Two Weeks' Notice (with Sandra Bullock) and Music and Lyrics (with Drew Barrymore). His recent film credits also include Bridget Jones's Diary and its sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, both with Renee Zellweger; the ensemble comedy hit Love Actually; and American Dreamz.
