Simon McBurney Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Screen Story, Executive Producer
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Englishman Simon McBurney enjoyed two distinct phases of his screen career; he began as a character player, who excelled at playing ruddy-faced, wizened, vaguely sinister types, often of a European or Eastern European origin. His resumé -- in this capacity -- includes such films as [[Feature~V26894~Kafka~kafka]] (1991), [[Feature~V227010~Eisenstein~eisenstein]] (as the famous Russian director), and [[Performer~P87470~Jonathan Demme~jonathandemme]]'s political thriller remake [[Feature~V288545~The Manchurian Candidate~themanchuriancandidate]] (2004). As of 2007, however, McBurney shifted gears somewhat by stepping behind the camera, when he executive produced and authored the screen story of the [[Performer~P2727~Rowan Atkinson~rowanatkinson]] vehicle [[Feature~V352003~Mr. Bean's Holiday~mrbeansholiday]]. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
