Rotten Tomatoes: Movies

With a steady stream of exemplary performances in the British theater, television, and film industries, award-winning actor Matthew Macfadyen was already a rising star in his home country when Hollywood took note of his work, particularly in updated classics. Macfadyen - both easily refined and resolute - was first seen in "Wuthering Heights" (PBS, 1998), but later became known for his polished role on British television's crime-thriller "Spooks" ("MI-5") (BBC One, 2002-2011), in addition to his portrayal of the romantic Fitzwilliam Darcy in the highly acclaimed adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" (2005). Further works in crossover hits included the dark comedy "Death at a Funeral" (2007), which saw him caught in the center of mayhem, and a supporting role as David Frost's producer in "Frost/Nixon" (2008). Macfadyen's fan base rocketed with his role as Arthur on the British revision of Charles Dickens's "Little Dorrit" (BBC One, 2008). In his highest-profile appearance for American audiences, Macfadyen's skill landed him square in the middle of a colossal assembly that was director Ridley Scott's retelling of "Robin Hood" (2010), which catapulted the British export to international success.
