About Henry McGrath

Henry recently appeared in the title role of Egon Schiele in BBC2's critically acclaimed Dangerous Desires. He trained at RADA, and was a leading actor in the internationally celebrated Polish repertory company, Song of the Goat theatre. He has been described as 'an exceptionally promising actor with a unique combination of physical dexterity, vocal power and potent presence'.

"He has enormous potential as a screen actor with a quality not dissimilar to Mark Rylance: a quiet intensity that is completely persuasive." Teresa Griffiths, award-winning BBC director

"Henry McGrath plays Schiele with tortured intensity, stripping down and twisting his torso in replication of the artist’s outlandish poses."
