Naissance 27 avril 1959 (63 ans) à Londres (Royaume-uni)

Neil Joshua Pearson (born 27 April 1959) is a British actor, best known for his work on television. Pearson is an antiquarian book dealer who specialises in the expatriate literary movement of Paris between the wars.


Pearson grew up in Battersea, London, the son of a panel beater, who left home when he was five, and a legal secretary, and was educated at Woolverstone Hall School, Suffolk, a boarding school, where he first learnt to act, and at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

After graduating, he made his first television appearance in 1982 and starred alongside Leonard Rossiter in Joe Orton's play Loot at the Lyric Theatre in London in 1984; Rossiter died during a performance while in his dressing room. Pearson then became an acquaintance of Hat Trick Productions and won a part in their historical sitcom Chelmsford 123. He also appeared with Hat Trick executive Jimmy Mulville in That's Love. Pearson narrated Colin Wyatt's animated series The Poddington Peas in 1986.

It was in the roles of associate editor and office lothario, Dave Charnley, in the sitcom Drop the Dead Donkey - another Hat Trick show - and of Detective Superintendent Tony Clark in the thriller Between the Lines, that he made his greatest impact on the viewing public.

Since then he has appeared in such varied roles as Dr Jameson in Rhodes (1998), Jack Green in the children's serial The Magician's House (1999), Trevor Heslop in Trevor's World of Sport (2003) and John Diamond in A Lump in My Throat (2003). He has also been in several films, including The Secret Rapture (1993), Fever Pitch (1997) and Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). He appeared in the 2006 Radio Four series Vent as Ben. He played the choir master Michael Caddick in the BBC drama All the Small Things in 2009. He also appeared in an episode of Midsomer Murders, and played a prominent role in an episode of Death in Paradise in 2013. In the Inspector George Gently episode Goodbye to China (2011), Pearson acts as a former Sergeant of DCI Gently, that now has risen in rank above his former master.

He is strongly identified with the British left - having made a party election broadcast for the Labour Party for the 1994 European Elections, though later prominently supported Ken Livingstone when Livingstone ran as an independent candidate for Mayor of London in 2000. For many years he has also supported the National Council for One Parent Families, having written about his family background for the organisation, and also raised £32,000 for the charity on a celebrity edition of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.

Pearson was a judge on Channel 4's The Play's The Thing, which sought to find a play written by an unknown writer for a run in the West End. The winning play, written by Kate Betts, was called On the Third Day and opened at the New Ambassadors Theatre in London in June 2006. Pearson appeared in a touring revival of Sir Peter Hall's production of Harold Pinter's Old Times in 2006, and in a production of Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia at the Duke of York's Theatre, London, in 2009.

Pearson is the author of a book on the Manchester-born publisher Jack Kahane, Obelisk: A History of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press. He is a collector of rare drama scripts and in 2011 he opened an online bookshop specialising in theatrical material.

He is a keen Texas hold 'em poker player, who took part in the 2007 World Series of Poker Europe event in London.

Pearson is also a fan of Tottenham Hotspur and regularly attends home games - even though in the film Fever Pitch he plays a man who takes his son to watch Arsenal. The boy then learns that the Spurs are a lot of bad things from other attenders. In 2007 he assisted with fundraising to renovate Bristol Old Vic Theatre.

Dr. Victoria Frankenstein, a scientist experimenting on stem cells and biotechnology, is working to advance medical science so her eight-year-old child, William, has a chance to receive organ transplants, and possibly a cure. This is the Universal Xenograft Project, overseen by Professor Andrew Waldman and assisted by her friend, Ed Gore. In the process of an organ-growing experiment, Victoria inserts William's blood into the procedure, and the stem cells begin to grow at a rapid rate. The insertion of William's blood is unknown until Ed discovers a tooth within the purpose built tank in which the stem cells are cultivating, and Andrew is then alerted. X-rays within the tank show that an organism is growing, and for the intention of scientific advancement, it is allowed to live. However, a lightning strike cuts the power within the building, and the creature, referred to as "the UX", escapes.

Bridget Jones a enfin trouvé l’amour avec Mark Darcy. Mais sa nature franche et gaffeuse la mène à commettre des impairs dans le cercle professionnel un peu guindé de Mark, d'autant plus que celui-ci a une nouvelle collaboratrice absolument ravissante, Rebecca, ce qui plonge Bridget dans l'inquiétude. À la suite d'un nouvel impair, Bridget quitte Mark. Elle est contrainte par son employeur de partir en Thaïlande pour tourner une émission avec son ancien amour Daniel Cleaver. Bridget est sur le point de céder à ses avances quand elle découvre qu'il n'a pas changé comme il le prétend. À l'aéroport, Bridget, victime d'un passeur de drogue, est arrêtée sous les yeux de Daniel qui n'intervient pas et est jetée en prison. C'est Mark, très froid, qui vient lui annoncer qu'elle va être libérée. Bridget, revenue en Angleterre, apprend de ses amis que Mark n'était pas seulement un « messager » comme il le prétendait, mais qu'il a remué ciel et terre pour la faire libérer. Bridget se précipite chez lui et tombe sur Rebecca : croyant qu'elle est la nouvelle compagne de Mark, elle est vite détrompée quand Rebecca lui fait une déclaration enflammée... et l'embrasse. Après une ultime gaffe, Bridget accepte la demande en mariage de Mark.

Estranged sisters Isobel and Marion are forced to reunite when their father dies and they must decide how to handle Katherine, their young, alcoholic, mentally unstable stepmother who has been left nothing but the rural home in which they were raised. Isobel and her lover Patrick own a small graphic design company that is struggling to stay afloat. Her sister suggests she and her born-again Christian husband Tom help them expand the business by finding investors and making Katherine a partner responsible for finding new business. Isobel has grave misgivings about the plan, but finally agrees to it when Marion convinces Patrick of its potential success. Before long, the strain of running the expanded business impacts Isobel's relationship with Patrick, who is becoming increasingly dependent upon her, while at the same time Katherine's tenuous hold on sanity begins to unravel.
