Early life

Born on 28 November 1968 in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, to Peter Waddington and Averill Stubbs, he is the second of two children.[1] Waddington attended Lawns Park Primary School and Intake High School, both in Leeds. He acted in school plays and appeared in several Yorkshire Television productions, among them Emmerdale Farm and Eighteen Desperate Hours, sometimes as an extra and sometimes with a few lines of dialogue. Shortly after his eighteenth birthday he won a place at East 15 Acting School in Loughton, Essex. He finished his training in the summer of 1989 and subsequently joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, first at Stratford and then at the Barbican and on tour in Newcastle. He was cast in his first film, Edward II, after being recommended to Derek Jarman by fellow actor, Nigel Terry, with whom he had worked previously in a production of Pericles at the RSC.[2]


His first film role was as the eponymous king in Derek Jarman's Edward II. Waddington starred as Prasutagus in the 2003 film Boudica as well the Duke of Buckingham (who, coincidentally, was directly related to Edward II) in the Showtime series The Tudors, released on 1 April 2007 in the United States. He also appeared in Tim Burton's 1999 film version of Sleepy Hollow as Mr Killian. He played a lead role as Jeff in Steve Coogan's The Parole Officer (2001).

He more recently appeared in the ITV drama Vital Signs along with Tamzin Outhwaite and starred as King Richard in the Series 2 finale of Robin Hood. Waddington also starred as Wilfred of Ivanhoe in the 1997 BBC/A&E production of Ivanhoe, based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott. Waddington reprised his role as Richard the Lionheart in the BBC/Discovery Channel drama documentary "Heroes and Villains: Richard the Lionheart" (2007).

From April to July 2010 he portrayed canteen head Adam Fleet in Waterloo Road.

He has also featured in two Swedish films. In 2008 he played the role of Arnold of Torroja in the film and mini-series Arn - The Knight Templar, and McCullen in Agent Hamilton: But Not If It Concerns Your Daughter in 2012.

In 2012 he appeared in the four-part ITV mini-series Titanic, playing Second Officer Charles Lightoller.
