Joseph May (born 16 June 1974, Southampton, United Kingdom) is a British-born actor who recently appeared in television and film on both sides of the Atlantic. Raised in Canada, he returned to the UK to study at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art before embarking upon a career that made him a familiar face in the British industry, particularly throughout the late nineties.
Most recognisable to British television viewers as gay nurse Sam Colloby's unemployed partner, Paul, in Casualty during its twelfth season, Joseph also starred in the final season of sci-fi series, Bugs as the naive and misguided Adam Mosby around the same time. He has also appeared in the TV series Stargate: Atlantis as Sgt. Markham of the United States Marine Corps, and Episodes as Andy Button, casting director for the fictional TV show that is the subject of the series.
Joseph's initiation into film was as a miner in the classic Stephen Fry venture, and renowned Oscar Wilde biopic, Wilde in 1997. Since, he has appeared in the critically acclaimed World War II mini series Band of Brothers as 2nd Lt. Edward Shames, 2001's Investigating Sex as Roger and Resident Evil as Dr. Blue.
Joseph recently played surgeon George Kerwan in Holby City in 2010.
