Ian McShane was born in Blackburn, Lancashire to Irene and Harry McShane, a professional footballer with Manchester United. He grew up in Urmston.
In the United Kingdom his best known role is that of roguish but dashing antiques dealer Lovejoy in the BBC drama series of the same name. He also enjoyed fame in the United States as bounding English cad Don Lockwood in the soap opera Dallas.
Even before Lovejoy, McShane was a pin-up as a result of appearances in television series such as Wuthering Heights (1967, as Heathcliff), Jesus of Nazareth (1977, as Judas Iscariot), and Disraeli (1979) -- as well as films like Sky West and Crooked (1966) and Battle of Britain (1969).
His recent work includes roles in movies Sexy Beast and Agent Cody Banks, and playing the role of historical figure Al Swearengen in the HBO series Deadwood. For his charismatic and alluring performance in this role he won the 2005 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Drama. In 2000 he appeared as Darryl Van Horne in Cameron Mackintosh's musical The Witches of Eastwick - his first London stage appearance since he starred with Dame Judi Dench in The Promise in the late 1960s.
Ian has also appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher as a guest.
He is married to Gwen Humble.
