Northern Irish actor Conleth Hill first appeared onscreen in several small roles in a series of British TV productions, including hospital drama "Medics" (ITV 1990-95) and long-lived police procedural "The Bill" (ITV 1984-2010), before landing his first recurring role in short-lived sitcom "Blue Heaven" (Channel 4, 1994). Conleth also appeared in several major theater productions, most notably Marie Jones' comedy "Stones in His Pockets" which debuted in 1996; he stayed with the production as it moved to London (where Hill won a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in 2001) and eventually Broadway. He also moved from London to Broadway with Conor McPherson's "The Seafarer," which premiered at the National Theatre in 2006. Hill's first major U.S. role was in Woody Allen's "Whatever Works" (2009) alongside Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood. After returning to the National Theatre for productions of "All's Well That Ends Well" (2009) and "The Cherry Orchard" (2011), Hill was cast in the epic fantasy "Game of Thrones" (HBO 2011-) as Lord Varys, one of the many schemers endemic to King's Landing. Hill took time out from his busy "Game of Thrones" schedule to film the drama "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" (2011) starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, before taking on a recurring role in the American cable drama "Suits" (USA, 2011-).
