Mark Antony – James Purefoy
Immensely brave, handsome and dashing; loved by his
men and adored by women.
Arrogant and impulsive, he is impatient with political
niceties beyond rousing a mob or charging full tilt at an enemy.
James Purefoy began his acting career with the Royal
Shakespeare Company, eventually starring in King Lear and Macbeth.
His other stage credits include Women of Troy at the
Gate, Death of a Salesman, Hamlet and Les Enfants du Paradis.
His film credits include Vanity Fair, Blessed, George
and the Dragon, Resident Evil, A Knight's Tale, Maybe Baby, Don Quixote,
Women Talking Dirty, Mansfield Park, Bedrooms and Hallways and Feast
