Early life 
Hart, the grandson of Irish immigrants, was born in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. He is one of three siblings and was brought up in a Roman Catholic family. He attended the Cardinal Allen Grammar School and was in his teens a member of the Everyman Youth Theatre before studying drama at the now-defunct Mabel Fletcher College of Music and Drama in Liverpool.
From 1988 to 1991, Hart studied video production at South Mersey College (now part of Liverpool Community College). He portrayed an International Brigade volunteer in the Spanish Civil War in Land and Freedom (1995), an unemployed Liverpool shipyard worker in Liam (2000), and the malevolent Professor Quirrell (and providing the voice and facial basis for the CGI generated face of Voldemort) in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001). Hart has played John Lennon twice — in The Hours and Times (1991) and in Backbeat (1994) — and has also played Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
He also teamed up with lifelong friend illy the director cast him in his episode of BBC1 drama Moving On Ian starred as Jake the father of a cross dressing teenage son, the episode was a high profile and highly regarded episode.
He is currently appearing alongside John Simm, Lucy Cohu and Kerry Fox in the Duke of York's Theatre production of Andrew Bovell's play Speaking In Tongues. After the performance on 23 November, Hart went into the audience and remonstrated with a man whom he had earlier told to "shut up" from the stage. Eye witnesses say that Hart assaulted the audience member.
