Reece Shearsmith

Biography

Reece Shearsmith, full name Reeson William Shearsmith, (born 27 August 1969) is an English actor and writer. He is most famous for his work as part of The League of Gentlemen along with fellow performers Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and co-writer Jeremy Dyson.

He made appearances in other comedy projects including Max and Paddy's Road To Nowhere as well as playing the insane villain Tony in the Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer comedy Catterick. He also appeared in two episodes of the award-winning pop-culture comedy Spaced as robot-wars obsessed TA soldier Dexter, and played neurotic doctor Flynn in the BBC 2 sitcom TLC which was written by The Weakest Link creator Fintan Coyle. His ability for talking 'gibberish' lends itself to playing his more macabre characters like Papa Lazarou.

From March 2006 to January 2007, he appeared in the West End as Leo Bloom in The Producers.

Shearsmith was born in Hull, Yorkshire, England and educated at Bretton Hall College (now part of the University of Leeds). He lives in North London with his wife Jane and their two children Holly and Danny.
