Biography

A regular face on British TV screens from the early 00s onwards, actor Joseph Millson was best-known for his recurring roles on "Peak Practice" (ITV1, 1993-2002), "Holby City" (BBC1, 1999-) and "Banished" (BBC1, 2015). Born in Berkshire, England in 1974, Millson attended the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama and spent the early part of his career treading the boards before branching out into television, landing his first major role as Dr. Sam Morgan in medical drama "Peak Practice" (ITV1, 1993-2002) in 1999. Following a two-episode stint as Lynn Slater's ex-fiance in soap opera "Eastenders" (BBC1, 1985-), Millson appeared as Macbeth's Billy Banquo in "Shakespeare Re-Told" (BBC1, 2005) and Lord Byron in "The Romantics" (BBC1, 2006), made his film debut playing a Madagascar-based field operative in "Casino Royale" (2006), and starred as radio producer "Woody" in relationship drama "Talk to Me" (ITV1, 2007). Millson continued to flit between the worlds of film, TV and theatre, bagging recurring roles as Maria's single dad in children's sci-fi "The Sarah Jane Adventures" (CBBC, 2007-2011) and doctor Luc Hemingway in medical soap "Holby City" (BBC1, 1999-), starring as a failed businessman hunted down by a paranoid farmer in horror "Devil's Bridge" (2010) and receiving rave reviews for his performance as Raoul in Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Love Never Dies." After showcasing his comic skills as womanizing literature professor Matt Beer in semi-improvised sitcom "Campus" (Channel 4, 2011), Anna Faris' boyfriend in rom-com "I Give it a Year" (2013) and a Sunday league footballer in "The Magnificent Eleven" (2013), Millson returned to the horror genre with leading parts in ghost-hunting slasher "Dead of the Nite" (2013) and zombie film "The Dead 2: India" (2013). Millson was then cast as British computer hacker Derrick Yates in "24: Live Another Day" (Fox, 2014) before landing period drama roles as Major Robert Ross in Jimmy McGovern's "Banished" (BBC2, 2015) and the Uhtred of Bebbanburg's uncle in Bernard Cornwell adaptation "The Last Kingdom" (BBC2, 2015).
