A well-regarded actor on stage and television in his native England, David Morrissey received critical acclaim for intense dramatic turns on such small screen projects as the series "Holding On" (BBC, 2007) and "Blackpool" (BBC One, 2004) and in the TV feature "The Deal" (Channel 4, 2003)," which led to roles in American features as well as a critical role on the hit American series "The Walking Dead" (AMC, 2010- ). After making his debut as a teenager on the series "One Summer" (Channel 4, 1983), Morrissey gave compelling turns as men under pressure - both internal and external - in "The Widowmaker" (ITV, 1990) and "State of Play" (BBC One, 2001). His divergent turns in "The Deal" and "Blackpool" as Prime Minister Gordon Brown and an aggressive arcade owner, respectively, made him one of England's most respected actors, but he was unable to translate this status into screen stardom with "Basic Instinct 2" (2006). Morrissey then returned to U.K. TV, scoring highly with "Red Riding" (Channel 4, 2009) and "Thorne" (Sky1, 2010) before co-starring on the American science fiction series "Extant" (CBS 2014-15) opposite Halle Berry. But it was his showcased role as the malevolent Governor on "The Walking Dead" that indicated that Morrissey was poised for stardom that exceeded the bounds of his fame in England.
