Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

After playing a series of self-described "fat kid" roles early in his career, Rafe Spall decided to permanently change his eating habits and trim down. He began incorporating healthy eating and exercise into his daily life, vowing to become as sculpted and toned as a leading man. Soon enough, the pounds began to shed, and better roles followed, including sizable parts in "Anonymous" (2011) and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (2012). In 2013 Rafe appeared as Rose Byrne's dapper newlywed husband in the romantic comedy "I Give It a Year," which would prove to be his first starring vehicle. The film earned him praise, as well as comparisons to Hugh Grant, while also establishing Rafe Spall as one of the film world's hottest young actors.
