Charlie Cox BIO

CHARLIE COX, a multi-faceted film, television and theatre actor, is best known for his lead role in Marvel’s series Daredevil in which he stars as Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer who fights injustice in court and also on the streets as the costumed hero Daredevil.

In 2014, he was seen alongside Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the Academy Award nominated film, The Theory of Everything. With his fellow actors from the “Boardwalk Empire” cast, Charlie Cox shared a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2012 for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series; the group was nominated for the Award again in 2013, following the conclusion of Mr. Cox’s two seasons on the HBO show as Irish immigrant and crime soldier Owen Slater.

Mr. Cox was born in London and received his training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He made his West End stage debut in Harold Pinter’s The Lover and The Collection at the Comedy Theatre, directed by Jamie Lloyd. His other stage credits include Heinrich von Kleist’s The Prince of Homburg, playing the title character in the Donmar Warehouse production adapted by Dennis Kelly and directed by Jonathan Munby, and ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore by John Ford, directed by Ed Dick, at the Southwark Playhouse. He made his feature film debut in Matthew Parkhill’s Dot the I, alongside Gael García Bernal and Tom Hardy.

His early films included Michael Radford’s The Merchant of Venice, with Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons; and Lasse Hallström’s Casanova, starring Heath Ledger. His breakout performance was in the lead role of Tristan Thorn in Matthew Vaughn’s Stardust, based on the Neil Gaiman novel. Mr. Cox starred opposite Claire Danes, Robert De Niro, and Michelle Pfeiffer in the fantasy adventure. Among his other movies are Roland Joffé’s There Be Dragons; Simon Shore’s Things to Do Before You’re 30; Glorious 39, alongside Bill Nighy, Julie Christie, and The Theory of Everything star Eddie Redmayne for writer/director Stephen Poliakoff; and Charles Martin Smith’s Stone of Destiny, in which Mr. Cox starred as Scottish folk hero Ian Hamilton. He guest-starred in the very first episode of “Downton Abbey,” and starred as Ishmael in Mike Barker’s epic miniseries Moby Dick, opposite William Hurt and Ethan Hawke.
