TAMARA DREWE

DOMINIC COOPER is one of the most exciting talents in the industry. Upon completion of his professional training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Dominic landed a role in Mother Clap's Molly House at the National Theatre under resident director Nicholas Hytner. He then starred in the Royal Shakespeare Company's A Midsummer Night's Dream, followed by His Dark Materials and The History Boys, for which Dominic garnered wide critical acclaim. The latter production received three Olivier Awards and six Tony Awards. The History Boys was also adapted into an acclaimed feature film with the original cast intact. Dominic recently starred on stage as Hippolytus in the production of Jean Racine's Phèdre, alongside Dame Helen Mirren.

On the big screen Dominic was most recently seen in Lone Scherfig's Academy Award and BAFTA-nominated An Education, and he will next be seen in Lee Tamahori's taut action drama The Devil's Double. In the film, about the life of Latif Yahia, Dominic is cast in the challenging dual roles of Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein.

Dominic's other movie credits include the worldwide box-office sensation Mamma Mia!; Saul Dibb's period drama The Duchess opposite Keira Knightley; prison escape thriller The Escapist; Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, adapted by John Krasinski from the best-selling short stories of David Foster Wallace; the Tom Hanks-produced Starter for Ten; Boudica; I'll Be There; and the Hughes Brothers' From Hell.

Dominic has also produced a number of acclaimed performances for television, including the BBC2 drama Freefall; John Alexander's BBC adaptation of Sense & Sensibility as Willoughby; and God on Trial. Dominic has also starred in Down to Earth, Sparkling Cyanide, The Gentleman Thief, Davison's Eyes, and Steven Spielberg's acclaimed Band of Brothers.
