In between his hilarious portrayals of the abused and downtrodden servant, Tim was seen playing Hugh Grant's best friend, Max, in Richard Curtis' Notting Hill, and as Tony Hawes in James Dearden's Rogue Trader.
His other major film credits include: David Hare's Wetherby, a film which not only gave him his feature debut playing opposite Vanessa Redgrave, but won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival; Terry Jones' Eric the Viking, Richard Loncraine's Richard III (another Golden Bear winner), and Charles Sturridge's Fairy Tale – A True Story.
For the BBC he starred in three series of Black Adder with Rowan Atkinson, as well as the much admired Edge of Darkness directed by Martin Campbell and Mick Jackson's controversial A Very British Coup. Most recently, Tim was seen playing Charles Irving in Charles Sturridge's highly acclaimed television film Longitude with Michael Gambon.
Equally at home in the theatre, Tim played in repertory and touring seasons around the country before being invited to join the Royal National Theatre for David Hare's production of Pravda, starring opposite Anthony Hopkins, followed by the title role in Hamlet. He then joined the Royal Shakespeare Company as Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night, Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet and Soranzo in 'Tis Pity She's a Whore. Tim also played Frank'N'Furter in The Rocky Horror Show in the West End and most recently spent a year with Sir Peter Hall's company at the Old Vic.
