British-born actor David Bamber made his film debut in 1982 with a supporting role in the zany World War II comedy "Privates on Parade." He has since become known for his dramatic turns. After studying drama at Bristol University, Bamber trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Shortly after making his film debut, he broke into television with a couple of one-offs, then landed a cast position on the short-lived detective series "Call Me Mister." His next big role came in 1995, when he landed the part of Mr. Collins, the creepy cousin of the Bennett clan, in the Emmy-winning British miniseries "Pride and Prejudice." This adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel won worldwide acclaim and drew notice to all involved. For Bamber's part he was given his own sitcom, "Chalk," which centered on a harried teacher at the worst high school in the United Kingdom. The show wrapped after two short seasons. Bamber went on to balance small film parts with TV work, until his role on HBO's sex-soaked historical drama "Rome" once again drew him notice. As the conspiring Cicero, Bamber exuded a smarminess that doubtlessly aided his being cast as Adolf Hitler in American director Bryan Singer's World War II thriller "Valkyrie." An established and talented character actor, Bamber continues to contribute to film and television, lending sturdy support through his eye-catching performances.
