Kevin McNally (born 27 April 1956) is an English actor who has worked in theatre and radio extensively as well as in film and television.
Early life and education
Born in Bristol, McNally spent his early years in Birmingham, attending Redhill Junior School on Redhill Road in Hay Mills and Mapledene Junior School (now Mapledene Primary School) on Mapledene Road in Sheldon. He went to Central Grammar School for Boys on Gressel Lane in Tile Cross.
His first professional job, at the age of 16, was at the Birmingham Rep. In 1973 he was awarded a scholarship to attend the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art where, in 1975, he won the Best Actor Bancroft Gold Medal.
In 2012 McNally performed as a voice actor for the best-selling video game Assassin's Creed III, providing the likeness and voice of the character of Robert Faulkner (who is notably similar to Joshamee Gibbs from Pirates of the Caribbean).
Notably, along with fellow British actors Ian McNeice and Kenneth Branagh, McNally appeared in two World War II films, Valkyrie and Conspiracy that depict behind-the-scenes activities of high-ranking officials in Nazi Germany.
