Marc Warren (born 20 March 1967) is an English actor, known for his British television roles as Danny Blue in Hustle, Dougie Raymond in The Vice and Dominic Foy in State of Play.



Warren has worked in film, television, theatre and radio. He was a member of the National Youth Theatre and trained at the East 15 Acting School (although he did not graduate). Marc played the part of Billy Casper in "Kes" at Birmingham rep studio and National small scale and schools tour directed by John Herriman for Snap Theatre Company and continued his career with a role in a 1988 production of Godspell which he won by writing to the producers, and went unrepresented until the following year.

Warren helped in the production of digital storyboards (as a stand-in for Ewan McGregor) in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Warren had his first major film breakthrough with the 1992 BBC film An Ungentlemanly Act, in which he played Falklands Islands' Governor, Sir Rex Hunt's son, Tony.

He played Dougie Raymond in the British television series The Vice and Albert Blithe in HBO's mini-series Band of Brothers. His first recurring television role was in the British television series Grange Hill. In 1995, Warren starred in the British film Boston Kickout.

In 1996 Warren played Immortal Morgan D'Estaing in the season four Highlander: The Series episode "Double Jeopardy". In 2000, he was presented a Royal Television Society award for his role as Monks in the ITV production of Oliver Twist. In 2001 he appeared in the television drama Men Only as Mac, the husband of Katie (Esther Hall). He played key supporting character Dominic Foy in the 2003 BBC serial State of Play.

He is probably best known for his role as Danny Blue (a main character) in BBC TV Series Hustle from series 1-4.

In June 2006 he played the character Elton Pope in an episode of Doctor Who titled "Love & Monsters". This was a return to the show for Warren, as one of his earliest TV roles was as an uncredited extra in the 1989 Doctor Who story "Battlefield".[citation needed] In December 2006 he appeared as the crazed assassin Mr. Teatime in Sky1's adaptation of Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. The same month he played Count Dracula in a new adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic novel, produced by ITV Productions for BBC Wales. The TV movie, which aired in December, received viewing figures of 5.23 million.[1]

In February 2007 he appeared as casino-operating villain Tony Crane in the second series of BBC drama Life on Mars. In December 2007 he played Mr. John Simpson in the BBC production of Ballet Shoes with Emilia Fox and Emma Watson.

In January 2008 Warren starred in the Messiah series Messiah V: The Rapture taking over the main role from Ken Stott. In the 2008 film Wanted, he played a small role as "The Repairman", a member of The Fraternity.

In 2009 he starred in a revival of Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman at the Curve Theatre in Leicester, playing Katurian, for which he was nominated for a TMA award.

Warren can be heard on television and radio adverts in UK. He joined Alexander Armstrong in lending his voice for the launch advertisements for Zurich Connect from July 2009.

Marc also starred as Ray Say in a West End revival of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice alongside Diana Vickers and Leslie Sharp from October 2009 to January 2010.

In May 2010, he played Steve Strange in Worried About The Boy, a BBC production due about the life of Boy George.[2]

In spring 2011, Warren starred in a new Sky One production, Mad Dogs, alongside Max Beesley, Philip Glenister and John Simm.[3]

September 2011 saw Warren return to the theatre to play the charismatic rebel Cool Hand Luke in Emma Reeves' new stage adaptation of the same name. Based on Donn Pearce's novel Cool Hand Luke and directed by Andrew Loudon, the play runs for a limited season from 23 September 2011 to 7 January 2012 at the Aldwych Theatre, London.[4] He is currently the face of Virgin Media's TiVo set-top DVRs since July 2011.

In mid-2008 on the Richard & Judy talk show, actress Abi Titmuss revealed that she had been dating Warren for about a year.[5] The couple split in mid-2009, after Warren had an affair exposed by the News of the World.[6]
