Biography

The tall, slightly gaunt, and quintessentially British character actor Laurence Fox bears more than a passing resemblance to one of the Windsors, so it scarcely surprised anyone when American producers from the WE women's network tapped the rising young thespian to evoke a twentysomething Prince Charles in the fluffy romance Charles and Camilla: Whatever Love Means (2005). Astute observers, of course, realized that this uncanny portrayal only represented the proverbial tip of the iceberg for Fox; at the time, he had already played another crowned head, Lord Rupert Standish, amid the ensemble cast of Robert Altman's Oscar-nommed comedy mystery Gosford Park (2001), and subsequently held his own with small supporting roles in Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007) and Becoming Jane (2007) -- both of which also required the performer to project prime English stoicism and fortitude. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
