England is known for its many famous plays, its theater industry and a huge amount of impressive actors. There is almost no blockbuster that exists without any form of British involvement. Our next guest comes from this industry and is a veteran of stage, television and film.
Guy Henry was born on October 17, 1960 in London, England. He attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, one of England’s oldest and most prestigious drama schools, fellow alumni including Sir Anthony Hopkins, Alan Rickman, Peter O’Toole and Tom Hiddlestone.
Guy’s early career included the role of a young Sherlock Holmes in Young Sherlock: The Mystery of the Manor House (1982). Other roles followed in television, such as the widely popular series Casualty, Waking the Dead, Extras and Rome. His part of Henrik Hanssen in Holby City has made him a household name.
On stage he has performed with the National Theatre, Donmar Warehouse and Royal Shakespeare Company, in such plays as King John, Twelfth Night and Cymbeline. On the big screen Guy’s credits include V for Vendetta and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and 2. Recently, he appeared in the first Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story playing Grand Moff Tarkin.
