|FB profile picture of Stevens|
Dan Stevens is a highly intelligent actor who narrowly missed at First at Emmanuel College,Cambridge in English Literature, despite having the Cambridge Footlights occupy at great deal of his time. The National Youth Theatre also gave him acting experience but it was his involvement with the Marlowe Society and its production of Macbeth which gave him his first break as he was spotted by Peter Hall.
He has acted in the theatre, tv and film. Besides Downton, he is about to appear in a comedy horror film Vamps (being released beginning of November 2012) where he plays the love interest of one of the socialite vampires and as well as in another Edwardian role in The Summer in February which is currently in post production.
He served a judge for the 2012 Man Booker prize. (You have to love a man who reads!) and serves an editor-at-large for The Junket
Adopted at birth, he grew up in Croydon and will be thirty later this month. He is married to a red-headed South African jazz vocalist, now turned singing teacher. They met while appearing in different productions in Sheffield and have two young daughters.
He is currently appearing in the Heiress on Broadway. It just had its first preview! Break a leg and all that.
