Jonathan Pryce    

Actor and Singer

Jonathan Pryce is a Welsh actor and singer. After studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art he began his career as a stage actor in the 1970s. His work in theatre, including an award-winning performance in the title role of the Royal Court Theatre's Hamlet, led to several supporting roles in film and television. His breakthrough screen performance was in Terry Gilliam's 1985 cult film Brazil.

Critically lauded for his versatility, Pryce has participated in big-budget films including Evita, Tomorrow Never Dies, and Pirates of the Caribbean as well as independent films including Glengarry Glen Ross, The Age of Innocence, Carrington, The New World, and The Wife. His career in theatre has also been prolific, and he has won two Tony Awards—the first in 1977 for his Broadway debut in Comedians, the second for his 1991 role as The Engineer in the musical Miss Saigon.

Initially in 2015, Pryce was a guest actor in the HBO series Game of Thrones as the High Sparrow before becoming a main cast member in 2016. Since early 2017, he stars in the series Taboo, playing the role of Sir Stuart Strange.
