      A veteran of the stage and former member of the esteemed Bancroft Players Youth Theatre, British actor Ben Whishaw quickly gained a reputation as one of England's most talented young performers. Whishaw garnered considerable attention for his stage work with London's Royal National Theatre and the Old Vic, prior to appearing in such U.K.-produced films as Matthew Vaughn's "Layer Cake" (2004) and the Brian Jones rock-n-roll biopic "Stoned" (2005). Soon after, he made his belated entry into Hollywood as the star of the critically lauded period thriller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" (2007). Considered one of the U.K.'s most promising new stars, Whishaw continued to win acclaim for leading roles in feature productions like "Brideshead Revisited" (2008) and "Bright Star" (2009). Although he remained a presence on such British TV projects as "The Hour" (BBC, 2011-12), the young actor was soon taking part in major feature blockbusters, including "Cloud Atlas" (2012) and the James Bond films "Skyfall" (2012) and "Spectre" (2015), in which he played tech wizard Q opposite his "Layer Cake" co-star, Daniel Craig, as well as prestigious films such as historical drama "Suffragette" (2015). Still at the dawn of his already impressive career, options for the immensely talented and astute Whishaw appeared limitless.
