Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This wiry blond English actor has excelled in character roles, playing everything from villains to a transsexual. Born and raised in rural Cambridge, England, Steven Mackintosh began acting as a child in local theatricals. At the age of 12, he was tapped for his professional debut in a play at London's Bush Theatre in which he played "this beast of a child who swore and cursed at everyone." Soon thereafter, the teen was cast as Nigel, the glue-sniffing, exercised-obsessed pal of the title character in "The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4". Mackintosh's career received a further boost when he landed the role of Eugene Jerome in the London premiere of Neil Simon's autobiographical "Brighton Beach Memoirs".

Notes

"He is a complete chameleon. He never brings himself to the role. He's defintiely a receiver--he soaks up characters like blotting paper. I can't praise him highly enough." --British producer Phillipa Giles ("Our Mutual Friend"), quoted in the London Times, September 5, 1998,

"I don't believe in chasing things too hard or being on a treadmill. My work's always been better and more enjoyable when I've had another life in between, There's danger you can lose enthusiasm. A certain lethargy can creep into your work." --Steven Mackintosh quoted in Los Angeles Times, September 18. 1997.
