Biography

The entrance of the main building of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) at Talgarth Road in Hammersmith.

Early life and education

Ben Daniels was born on 10 June 1964[1] in Nuneaton in Warwickshire, England.[2] His father was an engineer at Rolls-Royce and later a grocer, while his mother owned a children's clothes shop. He has an older and a younger sister. Daniels has recalled: "I was quite a shy child, but quite disruptive as well. I was very sneaky and underhand."[3]

According to Daniels, drama lessons at O-levels gave him a voice, and when he attended sixth form studies at Stratford College in Stratford-upon-Avon between 1980 and 1982, doing A-levels in theatre studies and English literature, he attended Royal Shakespeare Company performances avidly.[3] A fellow student recalled that Daniels, whom he knew as Dave, "was very serious about his work, and struck me as incredibly intelligent. ... You got the sense his mind was working; the cogs were ticking over".[1] Daniels subsequently trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) for three years.[2][4]

Daniels as Finn Bevan in Cutting It (2002–2005).

Professional career

One of Daniels' earliest roles was appearing as Justin Hayward, the lead singer of The Moody Blues, as a teenager in two of the band's music videos, Your Wildest Dreams (1986) and I Know You're Out There Somewhere (1988). In 1992, he made an appearance in Casualty in the infamous plane crash episode "Cascade", playing the co-pilot of the doomed plane. Since then, he has taken on parts in many UK television dramas, such as Robin in The Lost Language of Cranes (1991), based on David Leavitt's 1986 book; the Biblical character Jonathan in the 1997 Emmy-nominated TV film David; the philandering Finn Bevan in Cutting It (2002–2005); and Nicholas Brocklehurst, the British Counsellor for External Affairs at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., in the BBC television mini-series The State Within (2006) – the latter role was notable for an unexpected same-sex kiss between Daniels' character and another person.[5] In 2008 he appeared in Lark Rise to Candleford, a BBC production based on three semi-autobiographical novels about the English countryside written by Flora Thompson.

Daniel has also played a number of real-life characters: German State Secretary Dr. Josef Bühler in Conspiracy, 2001 a dramatization of the Wannsee Conference at which the Final Solution was endorsed; the English author and journalist Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, in Ian Fleming: Bondmaker (2005); Sir Francis Walsingham, Queen Elizabeth I's spymaster, in The Virgin Queen (2005); and English writer Saki in Who Killed Mrs De Ropp? (2007).[6] In addition, he has made guest appearances in a number of British TV drama series, including Soldier Soldier (1992), A Touch of Frost (1992), Outside Edge (1994) and Spooks (2005).

Charlotte Emmerson and Ben Daniels as Thérèse and Laurent in Zola's Thérèse Raquin (2006).

Daniels may be most recognizable to American audiences for appearing in the 1996 gay film Beautiful Thing, written by Jonathan Harvey and based on his play of the same name. Daniels portrayed Tony, boyfriend of Sandra, the protagonist Jamie's mother. In an independent film directed by Lavinia Currier titled Passion in the Desert (1997), based on a short story by novelist Honoré de Balzac, Daniels, in one of the few films where he has the lead role, acted as a French soldier named Augustin Robert. His character becomes lost in the desert during Napoleon's invasion of Egypt and develops a strange bond with a leopard he meets.[7] Passion in the Desert, which was nominated for a Golden Seashell award, also featured renowned French actor Michel Piccoli and was filmed in Jordan and in Utah, USA. Other feature films that Daniels has starred in are The Bridge (1992), Michael Winterbottom’s I Want You (1998); Madeline (1998), in which he was cast as the somewhat sinister British tutor Leopold; and Doom (2005), loosely based on the computer game of the same name. He was offered roles in the 2000 releases The Patriot with Oscar-winning actor/director Mel Gibson, and in Vertical Limit, but turned them down, stating: "The money was good, but it wasn't for me".[8]

In the theatre, Daniels is in his element – he has said "I love doing theatre – it's tough and keeps you on your toes as an actor."[9] He has appeared on stage in Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well and As You Like It (1999–2000), and appeared as Mercutio in a 1994 TV production of Romeo and Juliet. Other theatre credits include Beckett's Waiting for Godot (1994); 900 Oneonta (1994), which earned him a nomination for Best Actor at the Evening Standard Awards;[2] Martin Yesterday (1998), for which he was nominated as Best Actor in the M.E.N. Theatre Awards;[2] Naked (1998) alongside Juliette Binoche; Christopher Hampton's Tales From Hollywood (2001); Chekhov's Three Sisters (2003); Iphigenia at Aulis (2004), Sam Shepard's The God of Hell (2005), and Ibsen's The Wild Duck (2005–2006). In 2006 Daniels appeared in Émile Zola's Thérèse Raquin as Laurent, Thérèse's lover; a reviewer pronounced their performances "riveting".[10] He won the Best Supporting Actor award at the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Theatre Awards[11] and the 25th Laurence Olivier Awards[12][13] in 2001 for his performance in the Arthur Miller play All My Sons. He was first nominated for the latter award earlier in his career, in 1991, for his performance as Richard Loeb, a real-life murderer of a 14-year-old boy, in another stage play titled Never the Sinner at the Playhouse Theatre, but lost to David Bradley.[12] In 2008, Daniels fulfilled a lifetime ambition[8][14] when he made his Broadway début headlining as the Vicomte de Valmont with American actress Laura Linney in a revival of Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons).[15 ] Preview performances began on April 11 and the show opened 1 May 2008.[16] Daniels was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for his role.[17]

Personal life

Daniels is openly gay – he has remarked "Out? I've never been in"[3] – and lives with stage actor Ian Gelder.[30] They began seeing each other during a production of Joe Orton's Entertaining Mr Sloane. Daniels was already sure of his sexuality in his teens, although he did not discuss the matter with his parents because they did not have a very close emotional relationship. He was "cautious about mentioning it when I left drama school, because Aids was terrifying everyone and there was a huge, homophobic backlash." He decided to be open about being gay at the age of 24 years, while appearing in an all-star benefit performance of Martin Sherman's Bent. Daniels has said:

Homophobia is still shockingly prevalent in film and TV. I know I've lost work because of being gay, and it is always an issue. Even on a serious BBC2 drama there will be some suit in some office going, "Hmmm, isn't he a poof?" I don't consider myself politically gay, but whenever I catch a whiff of that now, I'm on it like a ton of bricks.[3]

In 2007, Daniels was ranked number 79 in the annual Pink List of 100 influential gay and lesbian people in Britain published by The Independent on Sunday,[31] down from number 47 in 2006.[32]

In his spare time, he is an amateur painter and Ashtanga yoga devotee.[8]
