 Philip Glenister Biography

Philip Glenister is an English actor. In the early 1990s, Glenister appeared in various TV series including "Minder," "The Ruth Rendell Mysteries," "Heartbeat," "The Chief," "Dressing for Breakfast" and "Silent Witness." In 1997, he guest starred in "Sharpe's Justice" as Richard Sharpe's half-brother Matt Truman. He played William Dobbin in the 1998 mini-series "Vanity Fair."

From 1998 to 1999, Glenister co-starred as a mini-cab driver who aspires to be a rock star in the series "Roger Roger." He also played factory boss Mack Mackintosh in the first three series of "Clocking Off" from 2000–02. In 2001, he appeared in two of the "Hornblower" TV films as Horatio's antagonist Gunner Hobbs.

Glenister played the photographer who took nude photos for a Women's Institute fundraising calendar in the 2003 feature film "Calendar Girls." Also in 2003, he appeared in the mini-series "State of Play." Glenister played the German commandant, Baron Heinrich Von Rheingarten, in the 2004 mini-series "Island at War" about the Occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. Glenister played social reformer and estate manager Mr. Carter in the 2007 BBC costume drama Cranford, as part of a cast including Judi Dench and Francesca Annis.

Glenister is probably best known for his role as DCI Gene Hunt in "Life on Mars" (2006–07), co-starring with John Simm as Sam Tyler, and its sequel "Ashes to Ashes" with Keeley Hawes as Alex Drake. Glenister also worked with Simm on "State of Play" and "Clocking Off" and the 2008 crime film "Tuesday." Upon announcement of the film, Glenister joked that he and Simm were contractually obliged to work with each other once a year.

Glenister starred as demon hunter Rupert Galvin in the 2009 ITV drama "Demons." He used an American accent for the role, which received some criticism from reviewers. After the series was cancelled, he said he had problems with the role and felt that he may have been miscast.

In 2011, Glenister reunited with John Simm once more in the Sky TV mini-series "Mad Dogs" about a group of old friends whose holiday in Majorca takes an unexpected turn. After a successful reception, Glenister returned for a second run of the series in 2012.

He starred in the 2011 conspiracy thriller "Hidden" on BBC One, and he played Captain Smollett in Sky1's adaptation of "Treasure Island," broadcast at Christmas 2011.

In 2013, Glenister played the role of Mr Trevor Gunn, a lothario PE teacher in David Walliams' BBC One comedy series "Big School." Glenister also had a leading role in the current Kudos-produced BBC drama, "From There to Here" (2014) which focused on the aftermath of the IRA bombing of Manchester in 1996.

In early 2014, Glenister presented the Channel 4 series "For The Love Of Cars" with fellow classic car enthusiast Ant Andstead. The two friends were set the challenge of restoring classic cars including a Mini Cooper, Land Rover, DeLorean DMC-12, MG T-type, Ford Escort and a Triumph Stag. The first series ended after 6 episodes, in which all 6 classic cars were sold at a London auction, with series 2 being aired in 2015. In 2016, he was cast as Reverend Anderson in the new series, "Outcasts."
