Jeremy Sheffield (born 17 March 1966) is an English actor and former professional ballet dancer. He is most noted for his roles in Holby City and Murder in Suburbia on television, as well as in the films Creep and The Wedding Date.



Sheffield trained as a ballet dancer at the Royal Ballet School, graduating into the Royal Ballet company and also dancing with Northern Ballet Theatre, before becoming an actor. He appeared as a dancer in Queen's music video for I Want to Break Free. His ballet career was ended at the age of 27 by a broken toe and torn ligament. However he had a much more prominent (non dancing) music video role years later where he played the male lead opposite Natalie Imbruglia in the video for "Torn", where he plays the guy who tries to approach her but gets separated from her for different reasons. This music video also gave him a little more exposure to the public eye.

He has notably been in the UK drama Holby City where he played Alex Adams (2000-2003), as well as the television drama Merlin. He starred in the 2005 movie The Wedding Date alongside Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. Subsequently he made a cameo appearance in the final episode of Green Wing, playing a character Sue White (Michelle Gomez) was dating.

In 2005 he appeared in the British and Irish Renault Clio advert "France vs. Britain" directed by Ridley Scott’s daughter Jordan Scott who also the directed the 2007 follow up spot "More Va Va Voom" again starring Sheffield as Ben and French actress Annelise Hesme as Sophie. He regularly features on the BBC's Holiday programme in which he has visited Mexico, Egypt, Sichuan, South Africa and Bermuda. In 2006 travelled to South Africa where eight celebrities competed to become rangers in a South African Reserve, for the 2007 series of BBC2's Safari School. In the final, Sheffield came second to singing coach Carrie Grant.

Recent television roles have included appearances in New Tricks and Hotel Babylon. In 2008 he appeared in the films Miss Conception, The Children and Last Chance Harvey.
