Actor Bio:
"With a decade of television and a failed marriage already behind him, Max Brown is currently cavorting about in a codpiece opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the HBO drama The Tudors. He plays the dastardly Edward Seymour, the power hungry elder brother of Henry VIII's third wife Jane. His break came ten years ago on Children's BBC; first he was heart-throb Danny Hartson in the 25th series of Grange Hill, then he graduated to playing ladies' man Kristian Hargreaves in Hollyoaks, and angelic waiter Mark Russell in Crossroads. He also appeared in episodes of Casualty and Doctors. He carved himself a niche as a soap pin-up with a catalogue of topless scenes to prove it." <a class="external" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Excerpted from ES Magazine - Sept '09">Excerpted from ES Magazine - Sept '09</a>

Max Brown


  • 'I don't think I've played typical leading men. I've played guys with emotional problems; I like going to the extremes of people's emotions. With Seymour, he's this power-crazed individual, but he knows how to play everybody at court and is just waiting to walk all over them.'

  • On living in Nottinghill, London : 'I love the fact that Soho is only £10 away in a black cab. It makes a world of difference when you're pissed at three in the morning.'

  • About his film Act of God, a revenge story in which Max has a vendetta against David Suchet's malevolent surgeon, he hopes to wash away his soap-stud reputation for good: 'I think in the last few years I've come to know what I could do in the future. I think that comes from working with more experienced actors like David. Watching him was a masterclass in acting. He could tell if you were uncomfortable and would say, "I need to go again," and give you a wink.'
