With a steady stream of exemplary performances in the British theater, television and film industries, award-winning actor Matthew Macfadyen was already a rising star in his home country when Hollywood took note of his work, particularly in updated classics. Macfadyen - both easily refined and resolute - was first seen in "Wuthering Heights" (PBS, 1998), but later became known for his polished role on British television's crime-thriller "Spooks" ("MI-5") (BBC One, 2002-2011), in addition to his portrayal of the romantic Fitzwilliam Darcy in the highly acclaimed adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" (2005). Further works in crossover hits included the dark comedy "Death at a Funeral" (2007), which saw him caught in the center of mayhem, and a supporting role as David Frost's producer in "Frost/Nixon" (2008). Macfadyen's fan base rocketed with his role as Arthur on the British revision of Charles Dickens' "Little Dorrit" (BBC One, 2008). In his highest profile appearance for American audiences, Macfadyen's skill landed him square in the middle of a colossal assembly that was director Ridley Scott's retelling of "Robin Hood" (2010), which catapulted the British export to international success.
