As a boy, English actor Julian Wadham attended Ampleforth College Junior School, the prestigious Roman Catholic boarding school run by Benedictine monks in Yorkshire. There he discovered his passion while acting in school plays with his friend, future actor Rupert Everett. He went on to attend The Central School of Speech and Drama in London, from which he graduated in 1980. He spent the following decade performing in a wide variety of television and theater productions. He appeared in two miniseries that earned Royal Television Society Awards in the category of "Best Drama": "Blind Justice" in 1988 and "Goodbye Cruel World" in 1992. He achieved a much wider level of exposure for his role as Sir James Chettam in the acclaimed 1994 Masterpiece Theatre miniseries "Middlemarch." In 1996 he played the role of Madox in Anthony Minghella's acclaimed romantic drama "The English Patient," which starred Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche. "The English Patient" went on to take home nine Oscars, including the award for Best Picture. In addition to Fiennes and Binoche, Wadham's stellar co-stars over the course of his career have included the likes of Gérard Depardieu, Ben Kingsley, John Hurt, Ian Holm, and Bob Hoskins. Among Wadham's other prominent credits include an appearance in the 1994 biopic "The Madness of King George" and a starring role in the 2008 horror film "Outpost."
