Biography

From the mid-1990s onward, reliable character actor Adrian Scarborough nourished countless scenes in pictures spanning size and genre. Working with directors as formidable as Kenneth Branagh, Robert Altman, Stephen Fry, Mike Leigh, and Tom Hooper, Scarborough became a virtual fixture of British film and television. Adrian Philip Scarborough was born on May 10, 1968 in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England. He turned early to acting, studying the trade at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, at which he was honored among his classmates with the Chesterton Award for Best Actor. Following graduation, Scarborough toggled between roles in film and television, incepting his big screen career with a part in the historical biopic "The Madness of King George" (1994), and his small screen career with roles on the crime drama program "The Governor" (ITV 1995-96) and the animated children's series "The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends" (BBC 1992-95). Scarborough's film roles from then on ranged in scope and theme, coming to form as comedies like Kenneth Branagh's "A Midwinter's Tale" (1995) and "The Revengers' Comedies" (1998), and dramas like Robert Altman's "Gosford Park" (2001), Stephen Frears' "Dirty Pretty Things" (2002), and Mike Leigh's "Vera Drake" (2004). As the years went on, Scarborough began to find more and more recurring television roles, beginning with the novel series adaptation "Cranford" (BBC One 2007), the sitcom "Gavin & Stacey" (BBC Three 2007-08 / BBC One 2009-2010), and the horror comedy series "Psychoville" (BBC Two 2009-2011). No stranger to working with well respected directors, Scarborough nabbed two roles under the direction of the renowned Tom Hooper, appearing first in the Best Picture Academy Award-winning film "The King's Speech" (2010) and then in the Best Picture Academy Award-nominated musical drama "Les Misérables" (2012). Scarborough remained busy as ever thereafter, appearing in comedy films like "Delicious" (2013) and "A Little Chaos" (2014), as well as television series like "Plebs" (ITV2 2013-) and "Up to the Women" (BBC Four 2013-15).
