Iddo Goldberg (Hebrew: עדו גולדברג‎; born 5 August 1975) is an Israeli-English actor.

Early and personal life[edit]

Goldberg was born in Haifa, Israel, and moved at age ten to London with his family.[1] His father came from Riga, Latvia but had to emigrate to northern Rhodesia during the 1930s, managing to get a degree in architecture from a university in the UK. Goldberg's mother's family is based in Jerusalem.[2]

He married his girlfriend and fellow actor Ashley Madekwe in June 2012.

Career[edit]

Goldberg has had several notable roles, including Brandon in the two series of Attachments and Ben on Secret Diary of a Call Girl, where his then girlfriend Ashley Madekwe also had a regular role. He appeared as semi-regular 15Peter20 in Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker's short-lived comedy Nathan Barley. He also appeared in the 2008 war film Defiance starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber.[3]

In 2013, Goldberg starred as Freddie Thorne in the BBC Two serial drama Peaky Blinders. He co-starred in the 2012 film And While We Were Here with Kate Bosworth.[2][4]

In addition to a Tumblr account that features his photographs, Goldberg makes short films that are posted there.[5] He directed the short Supper (2012) with Joey Slotnick and Lauren Katz and music videos by James Rousseau, Anyone (Acoustic/Live) (2012) and Hair of the Dog (2012). Goldberg also made a film about his maternal grandmother called Luba (2010).
