Paul Anderson (born 19 November 1978) is an English actor. He came to prominence for portraying Arthur Shelby Jr. in Peaky Blinders, Anderson in The Revenant, and Sebastian Moran in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
Anderson decided to pursue acting in the mid 2000s, after working for many years as a ticket scalper and aspiring musician and enrolled at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. He began his acting career by appearing in plays written by friend Gregory Burke, and made his screen debut with the critically acclaimed 2014 film '71, written by Burke. He had his first leading role in the British movie of 2009, The Firm.
Anderson's break came when, in 2013, he was cast as a main character in the BBC Two show Peaky Blinders as Arthur Shelby, a gangster in post First World War Birmingham. Since then, Anderson has appeared in many major films, including Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea and The Revenant, as well as Brimstone, which was released in 2016.
Anderson is from South London.
