Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A gifted theatrical and screen actor, David Harewood graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and became a West End sensation for his controversial turn in the play "Entertaining Mr. Sloane." Simultaneously praised and pilloried as a rising black English actor, Harewood overcame considerable personal demons to build an impressive career, notching roles on such TV projects as "Always and Everyone" (ITV, 1999-2002), "The Vice" (ITV, 1999-2003), "Fat Friends" (ITV, 2000-05) and "The Palace" (ITV, 2008). Scoring stage triumphs as Shakespeare's "Othello" and Martin Luther King, Jr. in "The Mountaintop," he was equally impressive in "The Merchant of Venice" (2004), "Blood Diamond" (2006) and "Mrs Mandela" (BBC, 2010).

Appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to drama and reminding many of Hollywood's Golden Age-era leading men, David Harewood was recognized as one of the most versatile actors working on either side of the pond.
