David Morrissey Biography

David Morrissey is an English actor and film director. Born in Liverpool, Morrissey learned to act at the city's Everyman Youth Theatre. At the age of 18, he was cast in the television series "One Summer" in 1983, which won him recognition throughout the country. After making "One Summer," Morrissey attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, then acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre for four years.

Throughout the 1990s, he often portrayed policemen and soldiers, though he took other defining roles such as Bradley Headstone in "Our Mutual Friend" and Christopher Finzi in "Hilary and Jackie." More film parts followed, including roles in "Some Voices" and "Captain Corelli's Mandolin," before he played the critically acclaimed roles of Stephen Collins in "State of Play" and Gordon Brown in "The Deal." The former earned him a Best Actor nomination at the British Academy Television Awards and the latter won him a Best Actor award from the Royal Television Society.

In the years following those films, he has had leading roles in "Sense and Sensibility," "Red Riding," "Nowhere Boy" and "Centurion," and produced and starred in the crime drama "Thorne." He returned to the stage in 2008 for a run of Neil LaBute's "In a Dark Dark House" and played the title role in the Liverpool Everyman's production of "Macbeth" in 2011.

He then starred in the British crime film "Blitz," playing a morally dubious reporter in contact with the eponymous cop killer. The following year, he signed on for the role of The Governor in the third season of the AMC television series "The Walking Dead."

As a director, David Morrissey has helmed short films and the television dramas "Sweet Revenge" and "Passer By." His feature debut, "Don't Worry About Me," premiered at the 2009 London Film Festival and was broadcast on BBC television in March 2010. The British Film Institute describes Morrissey as being considered "one of the most versatile British actors of his generation," and he is noted for his meticulous preparation for and research into the roles he plays.
