David Harewood

A Little about David

In 1985, at only 18 years old David accepted a place at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. It is at RADA that he fell in love with Shakespeare and has continued to play countless Shakespearian characters on stage throughout his career. Some of David’s most notable TV and Film credits include Blood Diamond, Spooks, Robin Hood, Criminal Justice, Homeland, Madiba and now Supergirl.

In 2012 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appointed David a ‘Member of The Most Excellent Order’ of the British Empire for his services to acting, giving him the title David Harewood MBE.

The independent film ‘Free in Deed’ in which David plays Abe Wilkins’ moving true story has gone on to win Best Film at the Venice Film Festival and saw David nominated for Best Male Lead at the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards. David’s portrait will enter the permanent collections of London’s historical National Portrait Gallery alongside some of the most key black and British figures in the UK who took part in the acclaimed BBC documentary Black is the New Black. The exhibition will open in November 2018 and will sit in the galleries for the next 200 years.

DAVID HAREWOOD | J'ONN J'ONZZ

In 2015, David Harewood became part of the Warner Bros. and DC Comics family playing Hank Henshaw – Director of the DEO – in the new hit TV series Supergirl.

A week before filming began, it was revealed to David that his role would also evolve in to the Martian Manhunter aka J’onn J’onzz. This is the first time the much loved character has been seen in all his glory, making David an integral part of DC history.

When the reveal episode titled ‘Human for a Day’ was aired David told press, “I spent three weeks just reading Martian Manhunter comics. I couldn’t wait to play him. It’s been a real honour and a privilege.” The episode was noted as one of the darker, deeper and more emotional episodes of the series with fans worldwide reacting with only positivity and excitement for all that was and is to come.

David is currently in Vancouver filming Season 3, which airs on the CW every Monday at 8pm and on Sky One in the UK every Monday at 8pm.
