Early life[edit] Dillane was born in Kensington, London, to an English mother, Bridget (née Curwen), and an Australian surgeon father, John Dillane.[4][5][6] The eldest of his siblings (his younger brother Richard is also an actor), he grew up in West Wickham, Kent.[7] At school, Dillane began performing in end-of-term plays and had "a certain facility" for funny accents.[7] He often found himself in women's roles, which he says "wasn’t good for my confused adolescent psyche",[8] but also recalls a part in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead as being particularly memorable, noting that shouting "Fire!" as Rosencrantz while pointing at the audience was "a very thrilling thing to be able to do."[9] He studied history and politics at the University of Exeter, concentrating on the Russian Revolution,[10] and afterward became a journalist for the Croydon Advertiser. Unhappy in his career, he read one day how actor Trevor Eve
Trevor Eve
gave up architecture for acting; this, along with reading Hamlet
Hamlet
and Peter Brook's The Empty Space back-to-back, made him "light up inside somewhere"[11] and spurred him to enter the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
at 25.[5][12] During his early acting career, he was known as Stephen Dillon but reverted to his birth name in the 1990s.[11][13] Career[edit]

and New York City, and was seen in the 2010 Bridge Project's productions of The Tempest

and As You Like It. Dillane also portrayed Horatio in the 1990 film adaptation of Hamlet. He played Michael Henderson in Welcome to Sarajevo

in The Hours (2002), legendary English professional golfer Harry Vardon
Harry Vardon
in The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005) and Glen Foy in the Goal! trilogy. He also starred in John Adams as Thomas Jefferson. Dillane has worked frequently in television, professing himself to be "a little lost on stage at the moment."[14] He joined the cast of Game of Thrones in 2011 as Stannis Baratheon, a major contender for the throne of the fictional realm of Westeros.[15] While admitting he had not read the books on which the series is based,[14] he commented that the show's appeal was due to "the storytelling, the extraordinary world that’s created and the way it reflects our actual world – a naked, ruthless pursuit of power in all its forms."[16] In 2012 he also played Rupert Keel, head of the private security agency Byzantium, in the BBC drama series Hunted.[17] The following year he went on to take the male lead, opposite Clémence Poésy, in the crime drama series The Tunnel, an Anglo-French remake of the Scandinavian The Bridge.[18] Dillane, who had not seen the original series, plays Karl Roebuck, the laid-back, experienced British detective to Poésy's humourless French counterpart.[14] His performance won him an International Emmy Award
International Emmy Award
for Best Actor.[19] In a second series in 2016, titled The Tunnel: Sabotage, he reprised his role alongside Poésy for a new case involving a deadly airliner crash in the English Channel.[20] Besides television, Dillane also starred in the 2012 British independent film Papadopoulos & Sons as successful entrepreneur Harry Papadopoulos, who rediscovers his life after being forced to start again from nothing in the wake of a banking crisis. His son, Frank Dillane, plays his son in the film.[21] That same year he also had roles in the films Zero Dark Thirty and Twenty8k. Offscreen, the actor in 2014 collaborated with visual artist Tacita Dean for the Sydney Biennale
Sydney Biennale
and Carriageworks
Carriageworks
in a project called Event for a Stage. The work, performed live and later adapted for radio broadcast[22] and film,[23] explored the process of filmmaking and the "concept of artifice on the stage" through a single actor, Dillane.[24] The performance encompassed readings from texts as well as his personal reflections on acting, theatre, and family.[25] 2015 saw Dillane making other brief returns to stage including a reprise of his reading of Four Quartets
Four Quartets
in London[26] and a one-off appearance in Tim Crouch's An Oak Tree at the National Theatre.[27] In 2016, besides appearing in the second series of The Tunnel, Dillane returned to the Donmar Warehouse
Donmar Warehouse
for a revival of Brian Friel's Faith Healer.[28] His performance as Frank, an itinerant Irish healer, was described as "poetic and powerful."[29] In addition, he appeared as artist Graham Sutherland
Graham Sutherland
in The Crown, Netflix's TV series about British monarch Elizabeth II. In 2017, Dillane appeared in two biopics, playing Edward Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax
Edward Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax
in Joe Wright's Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman
as Winston Churchill,[30] and writer William Godwin, the father of Frankenstein
Frankenstein
author Mary Shelley, in the film Mary Shelley.[31] Personal life[edit] Dillane has two sons with actress-director Naomi Wirthner: Seamus and actor Frank Dillane, who is best known for playing the young Tom Riddle in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince[4] and Nick Clark on AMC's Fear The Walking Dead.
