Biography

Already compared to Robert De Niro by the time he was 30, British actor Toby Kebbell possessed a hyperkinetic intensity and piercing intelligence that marked him as a rising star. His rough Northern edges were sharpened by an impoverished childhood but a teenage stint in the Central Television Workshop gave him enough focus and discipline to land a debut role on the ITV medical drama "Peak Practice" (1993-2002). But it was his next role, as a mentally disabled youth in "Dead Man's Shoes" (2004) that caught the eyes of critics and audiences alike. Directed by Shane Meadows, the brutal revenge flick catapulted Kebbell into high-profile roles in "Control" (2007), "RocknRolla" (2008), and "The Conspirator" (2010). By the time he signed on to "Wrath of the Titans" (2012) and "The East" (2013), the charismatic Kebbell had worked with a who's-who of directors, including Oliver Stone, Woody Allen, and Steven Spielberg. He might have been rough around the edges, but it was precisely that raw energy that made Kebbell so fascinating to watch.

Bonus Trivia

.

"It’s horribly crass to talk about, and my mother will be mortified to read this, but, I grew up very impoverished, and I wanted to make money. I didn’t want to do it by any old means, I wanted to do it under my terms, as far as I could get them, and I had a great ambition to do it. Not so much an ambition – a desire. I don’t feel bad about being honest about that." - from Telegraph.co.uk, Mar. 30, 2012
