Bio

Patrick Baladi is an English actor best known for his role as David Brent's suave and charming arch-nemesis, Neil Godwin in the television comedy series The Office, from 2002-2003.

Baladi was born to an English mother and a Syrian doctor, who was once the gynaecologist to the wife of the late Colonel Gadaffi.

He was educated in Libya and at a Jesuit boarding school in Lancashire where his first taste of treading the boards was when he played Nancy in a (boys only) version of Oliver!.

After drama school he joined the National Theatre where he acted alongside Martin Freeman, who would later be a co-star in the television comedy series The Office.

Following his success in The Office he joined the usual suspects in cop dramas like A Touch of Frost and the inevitable Midsomer Murders, where he got electrocuted in his car.

More romantic roles came in Mistresses and Consuming Passions, appearing nude in the latter as Olivia Colman seduced him in the shower.

He is also a member of a rock band called Grow Up with actor Keith Allen. Married to actress/dancer Gemma Walker since 9 January, 2007, he has a daughter Ava, born in March 2007.

When Ava was born he impressed the midwife by assisting at the birth, thanks to his recollection of delivering a dummy baby in the drama series Bodies.

In 2011 he played the role of Philip Shaffer in the thriller series Kidnap and Ransom.
