Pip Torrens was a prolific English film and television actor who racked up dozens of credits over his lengthy career. Born and raised in the Bromley district of London, Torrens spent his earlier years engulfed in his school work. He loved reading the works of iconic British writers like William Shakespeare, so he entered Trinity College in Cambridge to study English Literature. By his early 20s, however, Torrens started gravitating towards an acting career. He began auditioning for film and TV parts in his native Britain, and nabbed a small role in the 1984 Rob Lowe comedy "Oxford Blues" (1984). The experience of acting in a major Hollywood film was transformative for Torrens, and with that, he decided to leave academia behind to embark on a career as a professional actor. His transformation to working actor was swift and immediate, and by the late 1980s Torrens was booking roles in films like "Little Dorrit" (1987) and "A Handful of Dust" (1988), as well as a recurring role on "The Lenny Henry Show" (BBC, 1984-1988, 1993, 2003-05). His tireless productivity continued throughout the 1990s and well into the 2000s, with Torrens' more notable roles consisting of parts in the films "Pride & Prejudice" (2005), "The Mark of Cain" (2007) and "Dorian Gray" (2009). By the 2010s he began appearing in films that were nominated for Academy Awards, including "The Iron Lady" (2011), "My Week With Marilyn" (2011) and "Anna Karenina" (2012), thus adding more luster to his already impressive body of work. Additionally, 2015 proved to be a benchmark year for Torrens. In addition to appearing in the global blockbuster "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015), he also played a doctor in the Oscar-winning historical drama "The Danish Girl" (2015). Ever the one to keep working, in 2016 and 2017 Torrens appeared in three widely-praised TV shows, "The Crown" (Netflix, 2016- ), "Preacher" (AMC, 2016- ) and "Versailles" (Canal+, 2017- ).
