Rev – Simon McBurney plays Archdeacon Robert

Simon McBurney as Archdeacon Robert

The smooth, urbane and eloquent Archdeacon is officially Adam's moral tutor – however, his fearsome managerial style is more terrifying than nurturing.

He's the Bishop's eyes and ears in the parish and has a knack for appearing at the most inopportune moments – whether it's a Sunday service visit on the day Adam has his smallest congregation since arriving in London, or catching Adam unawares in the pub.

Simon McBurney is a highly acclaimed multi-award-winning actor, writer and director. He was awarded an OBE in the 2005 Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to drama.

He is a founder and artistic director of the influential and famously inventive theatre company Complicite. Their award-winning productions are performed throughout the world and Simon most recently directed and appeared in Endgame. He is currently directing the opera A Dog's Heart.

Simon recently appeared in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, and plays Kreacher in the forthcoming Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.

Other screen credits include The Golden Compass; Friends With Money; The Last King Of Scotland; Bright Young Things; The Manchurian Candidate; and The Vicar Of Dibley. He also wrote on Mr Bean's Holiday.
