Biography

Actor Tony Curran received his formal training from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. During the mid-90s, the Scotsman would take minor roles in the big and small screen, until appearing in the BBC drama "This Life" for seven episodes, which proved to be his breakthrough role. Curran then began taking on sizable parts in made-for-television movies, and in 1999 acted in the U.S. epic "The 13th Warrior." From there, he started popping up in other major Hollywood productions, often working in the genres of fantasy, horror and historical drama. Within a few years, his resume expanded to include blockbusters like Ridley Scott's "Gladiator," Michael Bay's "Pearl Harbor" and Guillermo Del Toro's "Blade II," and by 2003, Curran found himself in a substantial supporting role in the superhero adventure "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." He continued to work in big-budgeted American films, getting significant screen time alongside Kate Beckinsale in 2006's "Underworld: Evolution." The same year also so the release of the much more modestly-funded Cannes Jury Prize-winner "Red Road," a tense Scottish thriller starring Curran that earned him high praise and a BAFTA award back in his homeland. In 2010, he appeared in the BBC favorite "Dr. Who" as Vincent van Gogh before returning to Hollywood for "X-Men: First Class" the next year.
