Mini Bio (1)

This charismatic and elegant actor unfairly seems to be best known as the younger brother of British heartthrob, Colin Firth. This is indeed a pity because Jonathan Firth has developed a distinct and interesting resume of his own with performances in radio, theatre, feature films, but more prominently in very high quality television work.After graduating from the Central School of Speech and Drama, London (1989), Firth landed several television roles, most notably as the "struggling to find himself" Fred Vincy in the wonderful British mini-series Middlemarch (1994). Firth later had an opportunity to showcase a fuller range of emotion and acting skill as the very complicated Sergeant Troy in a superior remake of Far from the Madding Crowd (1998). More recently, Mr. Firth was cast as the morally upright Prince Albert in A & E's production of Victoria & Albert (2001). His latest credits include "Luther" (2003), a memorable guest appearance on "Ghost Whisperer" (2006) as well as playing Soren in the "The Prince and Me" sequels (2006 - 2010).

Personal Quotes (1)

I like acting and I want to be appreciated for it. But what I do is a job and it isn't rocket science. If you bear that in mind, then you probably avoid 90 per cent of the pitfalls of fame.
