Description - Martin Freeman by Nick Johnstone

The story behind the actor who has brought to life such beloved, drily funny roles as Tim from "The Office" to Dr. John WatsonBritish actor Martin Freeman has been appearing on our screens, from "The Office" to "Sherlock," for the past 15 years. In this time he has managed to garner critical acclaim for his roles as well as remaining hugely popular at all times with his audience. On account of his recurring star turn as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy, he has found himself an international star. Despite his abundant talent, it's an unlikely scenario for a home-loving, unassuming individual. One of five children, he decided to become an actor at the age of 17. He developed his acting talent working his way through theater and small TV parts, before landing his breakout role as Tim Canterbury in the acclaimed BBC comedy, "The Office." With the success of the show came further breaks including roles in "Love Actually," " Shaun of The Dead," "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," and "Sherlock." This fascinating biography tracks the career of the beloved actor, taking readers behind the scenes of the life and work of a supremely talented, albeit unlikely, movie star.
