Tom Goodman-Hill was one of those actors who could be relied on to provide a capsule of that inimitable British flair, whether performing in comedy or drama, on the screen or stage. Goodman-Hill exhibited his talents among several media, beginning as a regular background actor on English episodic television before leaping to film, the theatre, and radio. The actor began to earn due recognition across the board, landing memorable roles in "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (2003), the dark comedy series "Ideal" (BBC Three 2005-2011), and the London production of "Spamalot" (2006). In no time, the busy Goodman-Hill became a regular fixture aboard the casts of dozens and dozens of British and British-American film and television productions. Tom Goodman-Hill was born in 1968 in Enfield, Middlesex, England. His earliest pursuits were of the academic variety, studying at the University of Warwick and earning a Bachelor's degree in English and Drama, as well as certification as a teacher. Following graduation, Goodman-Hill took a job as a substitute teacher, but left the field after a year to explore an acting career. Goodman-Hill's earliest acting jobs took form as minor roles on British television programs, often playing police officers. His first major role came in the period miniseries "A Dinner of Herbs" (ITV 2000), based on the 1985 Catherine Cookson play. Shortly afterward, Goodman-Hill earned a recurring part on the popular and critically acclaimed Ricky Gervais sitcom "The Office" (BBC Two 2001-03), playing a consultant who suffers the boorish nature of Gervais' David Brent character. Using "The Office" as a jumping-off point, Goodman-Hill began to take on more feature film roles, including the high-profile (albeit critically maligned) "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (2003). He found a good deal more success back on the small screen, however, once he joined the regular cast of the dark comedy "Ideal" (BBC Three 2005-2011). On the series, Goodman-Hill played cowardly and corrupt Police Constable Phil Collins, a friend-turned-rival for Johnny Vegas' main character Moz. From thereon out, Goodman-Hill blossomed as a stage actor, delivering a Laurence Olivier Award-nominated performance in the London tour of "Spamalot" (2006), and as a radio voice talent. His regular television roles accumulated further, landing him recurring parts on the period drama miniseries "The Devil's Whore" (Channel 4 2008), the secret agent comedy "Spy" (Sky1 2011-12), and the period drama series "Mr. Selfridge" (ITV 2013-). Goodman-Hill's biggest grab at feature stardom came in the Oscar-nominated biopic "The Imitation Game" (2014), starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing. Earning yet another regular series gig, the prolific actor was cast as one of the stars of the A.I.-themed sci-fi drama "Humans" (Channel 4/AMC 2015- ).
