Item Description

Lunch in London with Brendan Coyle at Claridges Hotel. 

Find out more about the man behind Downton Abbey's Mr. Bates over a leisurely lunch in London. Brendan Coyle is ready to meet you and a friend during your next trip to England. 

Born to a Scottish mother and Irish father, David Coyle (Brendan is his stage name) lived in Dublin and London during his youth. With no thought of an acting career, Coyle worked in his dad's butcher shop after leaving school. It wasn't until his father died that he sought a change. Inspired by a Shakespeare production that he'd seen in school, Coyle contacted an Irish aunt who he knew ran a theater company and was soon enrolled in drama school in Dublin. Now a veteran of the British stage, Coyle has appeared in many television dramas including North and SouthLark Rise to Candleford and on Masterpiece in Prime Suspect 7: The Final Act and Jericho.
