Neil Morrissey is one of the country's most popular television actors. Having acted on both stage and screen, Neil has become a well-known and well-loved personality.
Having graduated from the Guildhall School of Drama Neil went on to make his name in numerous TV programmes, ranging from Boon to Roll Over Beethoven, and Gentlemen and Players to My Summer with Des.
Neil also took the part of Tony in the BBC sitcom, Men Behaving Badly. With seven series, it’s clear the show and its characters became a part of television history, as viewers took them to their hearts. Neil is also known for key roles in Paradise Heights, Murder in Mind, Carrie and Barry, Waterloo Road and Me & Mrs Jones.
Neil trod the boards in the West End, with the stage version of Victoria Wood’s Acorn Antiques, alongside Julie Walters, Celia Imrie and Duncan Preston. He also played Nathan in Guys and Dolls. He also enjoyed taking on the role of Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s National tour of Oliver.
Neil is nothing, if not eclectic. His very first job was filming Mutiny on the Bounty in Tahiti, with Mel Gibson. He has also travelled Jordan on a camel, followed by a TV crew, and lived to tell the tale. He is also very proud to have had several Number One records!
Viewers have recently seen Neil play Nigel Morton in the critically applauded Line Of Duty – a new drama series for BBC 2, which took a probing look into the world of modern policing. In early 2014 Line of Duty Series 2 was aired, again too much acclaim.
Neil will soon be seen in Over To Bill on BBC 1, one of three stand-alone comedy shows, part of the return of the BBC’s Comedy Playhouse strand.Read Less
