Stanley Townsend was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. After grammar school, he studied at Trinity College in Maths and Civil Engineering.

Recent theater appearances at the Royal Court include "The Alice Trilogy," directed by Ian Rickson, and "The Shining City," directed by Conor McPherson, for which Townsend was nominated for Best Actor at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards in 2004.

Townsend's television work began on a number of shows for RTE in Dublin. Since moving to London, television appearances have included acclaimed shows such as "Spooks," "The Commander," "Hustle," "Waking the Dead" and "Omagh Bombing." He was also seen as a series lead in the drama series "Rough Diamond" for the BBC.

Film credits include Mike Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky," Mike Newell's "Into the West," James Sheridan's "In the Name of the Father" with Daniel Day-Lewis, "The Van" directed by Stephen Frears, Peter Greenaway's "Tulse Luper," "The Libertine" with Johnny Depp, Paul Morrison's "Wondrous Oblivion" with Delroy Lindo, John Boorman's "The Tiger's Tale" and Michael Radford's "Flawless," opposite Demi Moore and Michael Caine.
