Warren Brown is one of Britain’s most illustrious actors. Following his performance in the BAFTA-winning, three-part event Occupation, appearing opposite Stephen Graham, Brown went on to star alongside Idris Elba as DS Ripley, the role for which he became most well-known, in the BBC’s multi award-winning series Luther. Brown received a nomination in 2014 for a Critics Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal.

Amongst his other TV starring credits, namely By Any Means, written by Tony Jordan, Inside Men alongside Steven Mackintosh, and King for a Term, a single comedy written and directed by Idris Elba, came the incomparable BBC mini-series Good Cop. Here he brought a breathtaking performance which was received with critical acclaim, and the show was awarded the RTS award for best drama.

Brown’s move into film saw him take on the title role in Captain Webb for Marathon Films and Miramax, and the leading role in the independent Feature Cargo, due for release in 2017.

While 2016 saw Brown make his London stage debut as ‘Kent’ in Neil Le Bute’s Reasons To Be Happy, directed by Mike Attenborough at Hampstead Theatre, 2017 brings him back to our screens in the highly anticipated ITV/AMC six-part drama series Liar, opposite Ioan Gruffudd and Joanne Froggatt. 

Excitingly, in spring 2017 shooting begins on the Sky1/HBO Cinemax reboot of the popular series Strike Back. Here, Brown is taking the leading role of Danny ‘Mac’ McAllister.

Other credits include Kicking Off, Genesis, Homefront, Single Father, Criminal Justice, Accused, Moving On, and Dead Set.
