JULIAN FELLOWES, writer, film director and actor, was educated at Ampleforth, Magdalene College, Cambridge and the Webber Douglas Acadamy of Dramatic Art. On television he is probably best known for his portrayal of the incorrigible Lord Kilwillie in the BBC series, 'Monarch of the Glen'. For television, he wrote the scripts of 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (winner of an International EMMY, 1995) and 'The Prince and the Pauper' (nominated for a BAFTA, 1997) which he also produced. His first script for the cinema was 'Gosford Park', directed by Robert Altman, which won him several prizes, including the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
He wrote the book of the stage musical of 'Mary Poppins' for Cameron Mackintosh and Walt Disney. His debut as a film director, 'Separate Lives', which he adapted himself from Nigel Balchin's novel, gained critical acclaim and an award from the National Board of Review in New York. His novel, 'Snobs', first published in 2004, was an international bestseller. In 2008 he is directing a second feature, 'From Time to Time', adapted by him from the novel by L.M.Boston. He has written the screenplay for 'The Young Victoria', which will be released shortly.
He is married to Emma, nee Kitchener, and they have one son, Peregrine, a dachshund called Humbug and a collie called Meg.
