Hugh Bonneville

Hugh Bonneville was initially looking forward to become a lawyer but then changed his mind and followed his thespian leanings. He also delved into theology at Cambridge which he admits served him well for his roles afterward. Hugh lives in Sussex with his wife of eleven years, Lulu, and their son, Felix, seven. Brought up in London and West Sussex, he discovered acting at Cambridge and has rarely ben out of work, making a big impression in the 1999 movie Notting Hill as hapless stockbroker Bernie, who fails to recognize the Hollywood star played by Julia Roberts. Hugh followed with an acclaimed performance as the young John Bailey in 2001's Iris, opposite Kate Winslet. Hugh has starred in countless high-profile British TV shows, including Five Days and Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story. Yet it's a testament to Hugh's ability to morph into different characters that he's not often recognised.

Hugh Bonneville Quotes
I try to do different things. I'd still like to play a real villain, like Ben Kingsley did in Sexy Beast. I can even do a cockney accent.
