Marc Warren (born 20 March 1967) is an English actor, probably best known for his British television roles as Danny Blue in Hustle, Dougie Raymon in The Vice and Dominic Foy in State of Play
Warren has worked in film, television, theatre and radio. He was a member of the National Youth Theatre and trained at the East 15 Acting School (although he did not graduate). He began his career with a role in a 1988 production of Godspell which he won by writing to the producers, and went unrepresented until the following year.
Warren can be heard on television and radio adverts in UK. Though some reports state otherwise,[who?] Warren does not provide the voice for the animated gecko in the Geico insurance company commercials, which is in fact voiced by British actor Jake Wood.
Warren helped in the production of digital storyboards (as a stand-in for Ewan McGregor) in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
He played Dougie Raymond in the British television series The Vice and Albert Blithe in HBO's mini-series Band of Brothers. His first television role was in the British television series Grange Hill. In 1996, Warren played Immortal Morgan D'Estaing in the season four Highlander: The Series episode "Double Jeopardy". In 2001 he appeared in the award winning television drama Men Only as Mac, the husband of Katie (Esther Hall). He played key supporting character Dominic Foy in the 2003 BBC serial State of Play. In 2000 Warren was presented a Royal Television Society award for his role as Monks in the ITV production of Oliver Twist.
He is probably most well known for his role as Danny Blue (a main character) in BBC TV Series Hustle from series 1-4.
In June 2006 he played the character Elton Pope in an episode of Doctor Who titled "Love & Monsters". This was a return to the show for Warren, as one of his earliest TV roles was as an uncredited extra in the 1989 Doctor Who story "Battlefield". In December 2006 he appeared as the crazed assassin Mr. Teatime in Sky1's adaptation of Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. The same month he played Count Dracula in a new adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic novel, produced by ITV Productions for BBC Wales. The TV movie, which aired in December, received viewing figures of 5.23 million. In 2007 he appeared as casino-operating villain Tony Crane in the second series of BBC drama Life on Mars. In December 2007, he played Mr. John Simpson in the BBC production of Ballet Shoes with Emilia Fox and Emma Watson.
In January 2008 Warren starred in the Messiah series (Messiah V: The Rapture) taking over the main role from Ken Stott. He played a small role as member of The Fraternity "the repairman" in the 2008 U.S. film Wanted.
In 2009 he starred in a revival of Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman at the Curve Theatre in Leicester, playing Katurian, in which he was nominated for a TMA award.
On 23 July 2008 it was revealed, on the Richard & Judy talk show, that Warren had been dating television personality and actress Abi Titmuss.
Warren joined Alexander Armstrong in lending his voice for the launch advertisements for Zurich Connect from July 2009.
In 2010 it was announced that Warren would star as Steve Strange in "Worried About the Boy", a BBC production due to air in late May. In it Warren stars alongside Mathew Horne.
In the Spring of 2011 Warren will star in a new Sky One production, 'Mad Dogs', alongside Max Beesley, Philip Glenister and John Simm.
