Steven Cree, originally from Glasgow, has performed in theaters the length and breadth of the UK. An early appearance in "Fierce: An Urban Myth" at the Tron Theatre earned significant critical praise, before roles in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing" and Joe Penhall's award-winning "Blue/Orange" confirmed his status as a theatre talent to watch. In 2006, Steven starred as Cliff Bradshaw in "Cabaret," directed by Rufus Norris, and a well-received recent turn in Stephen Sondheim's "Company" confirmed an enduring interest in musical theatre. He has also performed at the Hampstead Theatre for the RSC and most recently in "Macbeth" for the Manchester International Festival, directed by Kenneth Branagh.
No stranger to battle scenes, Steven can be seen in this year's films 300: Rise of an Empire, alongside Hans Matheson and Eva Green, and Maleficent with Angelina Jolie. Other film credits include 4321, The Awakening and Pixar film Brave. On television, he made regular appearances in groundbreaking Scottish drama "Lip Service," as well as guest roles in shows from "Misfits" to "Silent Witness." Most recently, he featured as a returning soldier in ITV crime drama "Vera," opposite Brenda Blethyn and as John Henderson in the second series of ITV's "Shetland." He will be returning to our screens later this year in the second series of BBC1's "Atlantis." Steven is represented by Tom Reed at Lou Coulson Associates.
