RESUME DETAILS
  • * Born in Montreal, William Hope joined the National Youth Theatre in London after high school performing for three seasons with them in a mixture of Shakespeare and new writing. During that time he began training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). After graduation, he worked continuously in theatre for the next seven years as well as performing as a resident artist in over 100 radio plays for the BBC. In the mid 80's he was offered a major role in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" but passed on it for a lead in James Cameron's Aliens (1986) as Lt. Gorman. The next decade saw him regularly playing leading roles in many top regional, touring and West End companies, often living in London as a base for family, while working extensively in front of the camera. He's appeared in a very wide mix of film and TV. He can be seen in art and indie films, international TV and numerous major Hollywood movies. More recently he is to be seen guest-starring in the last series of "Spooks" (MI-5), performing alongside David Thewlis in Luc Besson's "The Lady", with Rachel Weisz in "The WhistleBlower", Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" and most recently in Fox TV's upcoming 'Deep State' starring Mark Strong. He is known internationally for his voice work in cartoons, mocap, audio books and is currently a regular cast member in the hit cartoon series 'Thomas and Friends'. He lives in London with his wife.
