Bio

Nigel Lindsay is an English actor best known for his television roles as Dave in Dressing for Breakfast (1995-1998), as Levi in Rome (2007) and as Marcus in Clatterford, from 2006-2008.

Lindsay entered into the world of acting comparatively late. For three years he was a financial analyst in the city in his native London but, by his own admission, hated it and applied almost simultaneously for the law and the stage.

He had a place at bar school beginning on the same day as the start of his three year course at the Webber Douglas Academy - but the lure of the stage prevailed and he chose the academy, where he won the Amherst Webber Scholarship.

His finals role was in Charley's Aunt directed by Michael Fry, for whom he first worked professionally with the Lincolnshire touring company Great Eastern Stage playing an assassin in Shoot the Archduke.

Since then he has appeared on many stages including the Royal Court, the National, the Old Vic and on Broadway in Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing.

With a range extending from Pinter to musicals - most notably under layers of green make-up in the title role of Shrek - the Musical - he also took the Whatsonstage award as best supporting actor in 2011 for Broken Glass.

On television he played Sally Phillips' kindly boyfriend in the comedy Jam and Jerusalem and a sinister policeman investigating one of the Midsomer Murders.

On film he played a fervent white Muslim in the black farce Four Lions.
