Tom Vaughan grew up making films with his friends and has since become a successful film and TV director. After studying drama at the University of Bristol, Vaughan moved to London and began working as a director on several TV documentary series. By the end of the '90s he had written and directed the well-received short film "Truel" and helmed several episodes of the long-running British TV series "Cold Feet," which follows the ups and downs of three Manchester couples. He spent the early 2000s directing TV movies like the two-part BBC crime drama "Final Demand" and filming commercials for internationally-known advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi. After directing the BBC miniseries "He Knew He Was Right," adapted from author Anthony Trollope's 1869 novel about a crumbling marriage, Vaughan made his feature debut in 2006 with the modestly successful "Starter for 10," which stars James McAvoy as a trivia-obsessed college student who wins a coveted spot on a prestigious TV quiz show. Since then Vaughan has directed several high-profile Hollywood films: 2008's "What Happens in Vegas," starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz as two mismatched newlyweds; "Extraordinary Measures," which follows one family's desperate attempts to find a cure for a rare disease; and pop singer Miley Cyrus' 2012 detective comedy "So Undercover."
