British actor Shaun Parkes always had a natural attraction to the world of entertainment. After leaving school at the age of 16, he enrolled at Seltec College to study drama. Two year later, he was accepted into The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA), one of the UK's leading drama schools.

Since graduating from RADA, Shaun has appeared in numerous films and television series. It was his role in the British film "Human Traffic" that launched him as a star of the big screen. Directed by Justin Kerrigan and starring John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington and Danny Dyer, the film follows five friends as they spend a lost weekend in a mix of music, love and club culture. The film has become a major cult classic, influencing an entire generation of club-goers and setting a new standard for youth orientated comedy dramas.

Shaun continued to work with leading talent. In 2001 Parkes broke into the mainstream American film industry with his role in the action-packed and suspenseful "The Mummy Returns." His range of work runs from the dramatic, in the original UK version of "Identity" and "Notes on a Scandal," to the comedic, in the film "Things to Do Before You're 30." In 2008 he starred in the UK crime drama "Clubbed," which was nominated for the Raindance Award at the 2008 British Independent Film Awards.

Beyond his television and film career, Parkes has also had success in theatrical roles. He starred alongside David Threlfall and Neil Stuke in Joe Penhall's London Critics' Circle Theatre Award-winning play, "Blue/Orange," directed by Roger Michell. Parkes also performed in "Elmina's Kitchen," and played Booth in the UK version of 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning "Topdog/Underdog." He reprised his theatrical roles in "Elmina's Kitchen" and "Blue/Orange" for the TV adaptations made for the BBC. His relationship with Joe Penhall continued when he starred as the eponymous hero in Penhall's BBC series, "Moses Jones." Parkes more recently starred as DS Anthony Wareing on the British drama series "Identity."
