David Thewlis Biography

Born in Blackpool, Lancashire, England in 1963, David Thewlis began his acting career with minor roles in tv and theater. It wasn’t until the 1993 film, Naked, in which he played a grubby, sardonic drifter, that he launched into the spotlight. Several well-known performances followed, including Dragonheart, James and the Giant Peach (as the Earthworm), and of course as beloved Professor Remus J. Lupin in the “Harry Potter” Series.

He previously dated Fairuza Balk after the pair met on the set of The Island of Dr. Moreau, which also co-starred Val Kilmer and the late Marlon Brando. David Thewlis found the movie experience so utterly appalling – he broke his leg during filming, and it was said that havoc occured daily – that he penned a book about the ongoing disasters during the course of the film. It has not yet been published, though he has published several novels and books of poetry.

David Thewlis is now exclusively tied to the beautiful, and spunky, actress Anna Friel, and the pair have a daughter together named Grace. In an article for London’s “The Daily Mail,” Thewlis describes how he loves Anna dearly, but simply won’t marry her.
