Thomas Brooke (born 1978) is an English actor. He is best known for playing the roles of Thick Kevin in The Boat That Rocked (2009), Bill Wiggins and Andy Apsted in the BBC One television series Sherlock and Bodyguard respectively, and Fiore in the AMC television series Preacher.

Early life[edit]

He is the son of actor Paul Brooke. Brooke attended Alleyn's School in Dulwich, London, and Hull University. He trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.


Brooke played Bill Wiggins in series 3 of BBC's Sherlock, "Lame" Lothar Frey in season 3 of HBO's Game of Thrones,[2] and Fiore in AMC's Preacher.[3][4]

In 2011 Brooke played the dimwitted Lee in Jez Butterworth's much-garlanded play Jerusalem at The Royal Court theatre to great acclaim. The following year, he reprised the role in the play's first West End run at The Apollo and was soon after cast in the lead role of the National Theatre's revival of Arnold Wesker's The Kitchen to critical plaudits.
