Roger Michell

Director

Born - 5 June 1956, Pretoria, South Africa

Stocky, balding, latterly bearded, small-featured South African-born director of atmospheric mainstream films. After making his name in the early 1990s with such TV series as The Buddha of Suburbia, he broke into films and was immediately successful: My Night With Reg (1997), Titanic Town (1998), Notting Hill (1990), Changing Lanes (2002), The Mother (2003), Enduring Love (2004), Venus (2006), Morning Glory (2010), Hyde Park on Hudson (2012), Le Week-end (2013), Birthday (2015), My Cousin Rachel (2017), Blackbird (2019) and The Duke (2021), his last, and yet to be shown. His two marriages, to actresses Kate Buffery and Anna Maxwell Martin, both ended in divorce. He died from a heart attack.
