English actor Harry Treadaway took a slightly longer route to stardom than his twin brother Luke, appearing in well-regarding U.K. TV series and features like "Fish Tank" (2009) before achieving stardom as Dr. Victor Frankenstein on "Penny Dreadful" (Showtime, 2014-16). Born September 10, 1984 in Exeter, a city in Devon, England, Harry John Treadaway, along with older brother Sam and his twin sibling, Luke, were raised by their father, an architect, and mother, a primary school teacher in the village of Sandford. Harry developed an interest in acting from an early age after appearing in a pantomime production with his father, and both he and Luke were inspired by a secondary school drama teacher to pursue acting as a profession. They received their initial training at the National Youth Theatre before continuing their studies at the London Academy of Music and Drama (LAMDA). During this period, both Harry and Luke performed in a rock group called Lizardsun, which contributed to their casting as conjoined twins who front a band in "Brothers of the Head" (2005). For the film, which marked Harry's feature film debut, both brothers wrote and performed all of those songs featured in the picture. Harry soon landed guest appearances on British TV series like "Agatha Christie's Marple" (ITV, 2004-2013) before graduating from LAMDA in 2006. The following year, he enjoyed a substantial supporting role as drummer Stephen Morris in "Control" (2007), a biopic about the English band Joy Division and its singer, Ian Curtis. This preceded supporting turns and the occasional lead in independent features like "The Disappeared" (2008), "City of Ember" (2008), and as a sympathetic Romani in the acclaimed "Fish Tank" (2009), which won the Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. More U.K. features and television followed before Treadaway made his American feature debut as an outlaw with a taste for women's clothing in "The Lone Ranger" (2013). The following year, Treadaway earned his international breakout role as the arrogant Dr. Victor Frankenstein on "Penny Dreadful," a Gothic-themed action/drama series about figures from literary horror on the loose in Victorian London.
