Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Nervy, sharp-featured Londoner Sean Harris brings a feral intensity to his roles, and he has consequently come to specialize in outsiders, ranging from the hellishly violent to the merely twitchy. Raised in Norfolk and trained at London's Drama Centre, Harris appeared as Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis in Michael Winterbottom's much-admired chronicle of the Manchester music scene, "24 Hour Party People." In 2004's "Creep," he played a monster living in the London Underground. As if that wasn't dark enough, he embodied a real-life monster, Moors murderer Ian Brady, in the BAFTA-winning TV serial "See No Evil: The Moors Murders," and played a violent former football hooligan involved in a campaign of vigilante violence in Nick Love's underground hit "Outlaw." Harris is a regular presence in uncommercial but critically lauded British films, such as the surreal mockumentary "Brothers of the Head," David Mackenzie's dark drama "Asylum," and the oddball thriller "Saxon," in which he played a rare lead role. He played the key role of murder victim Fred Hale in Rowan Joffe's "Brighton Rock," worked with Sir Michael Caine on "Harry Brown," and appears amid a starry cast in Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic...
