Colin Hurley is predominantly a stage actor, with a vast number of credits to his name. His early career saw many leading roles at Salisbury Playhouse, Ipswich Wolsey Theatre and Theatr Clwyd. This was followed by a starring role in the internationally acclaimed Phyllida Lloyd’s direction of Comedy of Errors at the Bristol Old Vic. From then on in, Hurley’s career has gone from strength to strength as he has dominated almost all of London’s leading theatres. After several performances at the Hammersmith Lyric Theatre, he took to the Royal National Theatre’s stage multiple times. Concluding his National run with a couple of Shakespeare productions, the Bard clearly tickled his fancy because he went on to join the Royal Shakespeare Company four times and appear at Shakespeare’s Globe no less than seventeen times. Interspersing these performances with a couple of UK and USA tours, as well as several performances at The Factory, his last few roles show the complete loyalty he has to the Globe. He has most recently appeared as King Edward in Richard III and Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night, both of which were directed by Tim Carroll and put on at Shakespeare’s Globe. Although classic stage productions are clearly his wont, he has an impressive television resume, having appeared in popular series such as Holby City, EastEnders and in the title role of BBC’s adaptation of David Copperfield.Read Less
