BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London - 195 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1J 9LN, UK

Organised by BAFTA

Hear from award-winning actor Eddie Marsan as he delves into his craft and career highlights across film and TV. Credits include V for Vendetta (2005), Happy-Go-Lucky (2008), Filth (2013), The Pact (2021), The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe (2022) and The Power (2023).

Born in Stepney, East London, and raised in Bethnal Green, Marsan initially served an apprenticeship as a printer, before beginning his career in theatre. He trained at the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, graduating in 1991, and, across his long-standing career, has worked with directors such as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, J.J. Abrams, and Guy Ritchie.
He has collaborated with Mike Leigh on three films including Vera Drake, for which he won the British Independent Film Award for Best Supporting actor in 2004 and Happy-Go-Lucky, for which he won a BIFA for Best Supporting Actor as well as the London Film Critics Circle Award and the National Society of Film Critics in 2009. In 2014, he won Best Performance in a British Feature Film for his role in Still Life at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and in 2022 he was nominated for Best Actor at the BAFTA Cymru Awards for The Pact.

Marsan is a patron for several institutions including the School of the Science of Acting, Humanists UK and Kazzum, a children's theatre company that promotes the acceptance of diversity.
