One of Hollywood's rising stars of the 21st century, Hugh Dancy certainly has firmly placed himself among the likes of Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, Chiwetel Ejiofor, also Rhona Mitra in representing the presence and strength of young British thespians in the world of cinema. Coming from an academic family of a philosophy professor and a publisher, Hugh was born on June 19, 1975 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, UK to Jonathan and Sarah Dancy as the eldest of their three children. He spent his younger years studying at the all-male Winchester College where he gradually developed an interest in acting after being involved in a couple of the school's stage productions. Even so, he wisely chose to finish his education first and thus enrolled in the prestigious Oxford University upon his high school graduation, taking major in English Language and Literature.
