Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This handsome lanky, auburn-haired British actor first came to the attention of American audience as the brash young Scottish physician who learns humanity in a small village in the period British series "Doctor Finlay" (PBS, 1993-1994). Jason Flemyng earned unanimous critical praise and was marked as an actor to watch. He delivered on this promise with a one-two punch as a seemingly respectable engineer with a hidden sadistic streak in Angela Pope's "The Hollow Reed" (1996) and as a self-absorbed HIV-positive dancer who reluctantly finds romance in Nancy Meckler's "Alive and Kicking/Indian Summer" (1997).

Notes

"Most of the work I've done has been luck. It's been brilliant; it seems as though I've made really good choices, but I haven't really. If I get offered stuff, I'm chuffed to bits but I haven't been weighing up three offers at a time and deciding what to do. I've been very lucky that the jobs I've done have been good films. . . .it's a fickle thing--in eight months I'll probably be looking for cigarettes under the sofa . . . " --Jason Flemyng in EMPIRE, July 1997
