During his early years, he was introduced to future screenwriter, Richard Curtis, with whom he wrote and performed comedy lampoons at the Oxford Playhouse and later at the Edinburgh Fringe.

He made his motion picture debut with the James Bond thriller, ‘Never Say Never Again’ and went on to star in a number of films including ‘The Witches’, ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Bean, ‘Johnny English’ and ‘Keeping Mum’.
