Mark Antony - James Purefoy

Rome - this autumn on BBC TWO

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 of July.
