Johnny Harris

Johnny Harris first burst onto our screens in 2006 in the highly acclaimed British film London to Brighton.

The film was voted into Time Out Magazine’s ‘100 Greatest British Films of All Time’ and celebrated British director Shane Meadows said of Harris’ performance in the film: “It’s an incredibly bold and massively powerful performance, the best I’ve seen on celluloid for a long time.”

He went on to star in Shane Meadows cult television series This Is England ’86 receiving BAFTA and Royal Television Society Award nominations for his performance.

He has since starred in film and TV hits including A Christmas Carol, Jawbone, The Salisbury Poisonings, Snow White and the Huntsman, Fortitude, Troy Fall of a City, Medici, This is England ‘88-’90, Monsters: Dark Continent, From Darkness, Welcome to the Punch, and Jack Thorne’s BAFTA Award-winning TV show The Fades.

In 2017 Johnny made his debut as a screenwriter with the highly acclaimed feature film Jawbone. Harris also starred in and co-produced the movie. He received a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Outstanding Debut, two BIFA Film Award nominations for his performance in the leading role, and a Writers Guild Award nomination for his screenplay.

Song-writing icon Paul Weller composed and recorded the soundtrack for Jawbone (his first) and in October 2018, Johnny made his debut behind the camera, directing the video for Paul’s hit single Gravity.

Johnny’s most recent work includes playing Franklin Scrooge in the BBC/FOX TV adaptation of A Christmas Carol alongside Guy Pearce and Andy Serkis. Exec-produced by Ridley Scott and Tom Hardy. He also played Charlie Rowley in the highly acclaimed BBC Drama The Salisbury Poisonings, based on the tragic real-life events of 2018.
