Versatile English actor Stephen Campbell Moore was a dependable character actor in films and on television and stage, playing complicated, often flawed men in "The History Boys" and its 2006 film adaptation, as well as "Complicit" (Channel 4, 2013), "The Go-Between" (BBC One, 2015) and "Goodbye Christopher Robin"(2017). Born Stephen Moore Thorpe in London, England on November 30, 1979, he was raised in the county of Hertfordshire and studied at Berkhamstead School before receiving his training in acting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After adopting his stage name to avoid confusion with another actor named Stephen Thorpe, he began his professional career on stage, appearing in productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company, before earning his first top-billed screen role as an aspiring novelist in "Bright Young Things" (2003), an adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies by actor/writer Stephen Fry. The following year, Moore landed his breakout role as Irwin, a youthful teacher embroiled in sexual impropriety at an English boys' school in Alan Bennett's Tony-winning play "The History Boys." Moore received a 2006 Drama Desk Award nomination for his performance, and reprised the role for the 2006 film version, directed by Nicholas Hynter. The success of the play led to a diverse array film and television work, which included a turn as Edward VIII in "Wallis & Edward" (ITV, 2005) and co-starring turns opposite action stars Jason Statham and Nicolas Cage in "The Bank Job" (2008) and "Season of the Witch" (2011), respectively. Between these efforts, Moore also made frequent returns to the stage in London's West End, appearing in productions of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Clybourne Park" in 2011 and "Chimerica" in 2013. Television soon became his primary screen showcase, with roles in the Julian Fellowes-penned "Titanic" (ITV/ABC, 2012), the thriller series "Hunted" (BBC One, 2012) for creator Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files," Fox, 1993-2002, 2016- ), and the spy drama "Complicit," which won the British Academy Award for Single Drama. In 2015, Moore enjoyed the spotlight in two forms of media: he was a disfigured English noble in "The Go-Between" (BBC One), an adaptation of L.P. Hartley's novel of the same name, and co-starred with Nicole Kidman in "Photograph 51," about the discovery of the DNA double helix, on stage at the Noel Coward Theatre. Two years later, he repeated the double feat with a starring role on Peter Moffatt's "The Last Post" (BBC One, 2017), about the Royal Military Police in Yemen during the late 1960s, and as illustrator Ernest Shepherd in "Goodbye Christopher Robin," director Simon Curtis' look at author A.A. Milne and his complex relationship with his son, who served as the inspiration for the character in his "Winnie-the-Pooh" stories.
