Biography

James D'Arcy consistently delivered convincing and multilayered performances throughout the course of his career, whether it was playing a British monarch forced to abdicate his throne to marry an American socialite in "W. E." (2011) or portraying an iconic actor who essayed one of the most demented characters in cinematic history, as he did in the biopic Hitchcock" (2012). The classically trained D'Arcy launched his career with a string of appearances in British TV movies and historical miniseries like "Silent Witness" (BBC, 1996) and "Rebel Heart" (BBC, 2001- ), followed by lead parts in made-for-TV films like Sherlock: Case of Evil" (USA Network, 2002). Playing against type, D'Arcy appeared in many horror films like "Exorcist: The Beginning" (2004) and "An American Haunting" (2005), and delivered a spine-tingling performance in the 2012 thriller "In Their Skin," as a homicidal maniac who keeps a family hostage in their own home. That same year, D'Arcy stepped into the role of Anthony Perkins in the much-anticipated biopic "Hitchcock," bringing to light all of the late actor's nervous idiosyncrasies and unequaled onscreen talent, all of which proved that D'Arcy was one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars with unlimited emotional range.
