RHYS IFANS (Dr. Connors) is a gifted actor known for his enduring presence, his distinctive approach to comedy, and his ability to elegantly disappear into compelling and complex roles that are always memorable.

Ifans was most recently seen in Judd Apatow's The Five-Year Engagement, opposite Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in a comedy that charts the ups and downs of a couple's relationship. Ifans is in production on the independent film, Serena, directed by Susanne Bier. Ifans stars opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

Based on Jonathan Franzen's critically acclaimed book of the same name, Ifans stars alongside Ewan McGregor, Anthony Hopkins, and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Ifans is perhaps best known for his breakout performance in Roger Michell's Notting Hill (1999) where he starred opposite a noteworthy cast including Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. For his portrayal of Grant's roommate Spike, Ifans received a BAFTA nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

Beyond film and television, Ifans made a guest appearance for the rock band Oasis in the video for their single "The Importance of Being Idle,” for which he accepted their award for Video of the Year at the 2005/6 NME Awards.

Ifans was born and raised in Wales, where he attended youth acting schools at Theatre Clwyd in Flintshire and appeared in many Welsh language television programs before embarking on his film career.
