Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Through the first decade of his career, the Welsh-born Tom Ellis amassed a diverse and impressive list of acting credits, though his biggest roles were in British comedies and soap operas. His earliest parts included "The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby," which was based on the Charles Dickens novel and saw release on the small screen in 2001.

During the latter part of the '00s, he guest-starred in an episode of the sci-fi show "Dr. Who," and co-starred in television comedies such as "Monday Monday" and "Miranda," playing the potential love interest of star Miranda Hart in the latter. He has appeared in several films, including Mike Leigh's 2004 drama "Vera Drake" starring Imelda Staunton, and the '08 comedy "Miss Conception" starring Heather Graham. Since...
