Bio

Tim Downie is an English actor and writer best known for his role as Alex North in the television series Doctors, in 2002.

Downie was born in 1977. He trained at the Mountview Academy of Theatrical Arts in North London, beginning to write plays whilst in his early twenties.

His first commissioned work, The Dead Moon, became the first non-operatic work to be staged at the Aldeburgh Festival. His sketch show The Real Brian Blessed with comedy partner Matt Earley toured Britain to critical acclaim and he has appeared on stage at the King's Head and the Rose as well as Theatre in a Car.

In 2011/2012, he came to the attention of wider audiences in the television sketch series This is Jinsy and the sitcom The Royal Bodyguard where his character, the hapless Yates, is the perpetual victim of bodyguard David Jason's clumsiness.

He also appeared as the Duke Of Gloucester in the 2010 Academy Award-winning film The King's Speech.
