November 2022 | Jack O'Connell


JACK O'CONNELL is well-known for his early role as James Cook in the British teen drama SKINS, with his career soaring exponentially since winning the EE Rising Star Award at the 2015 BAFTAs.

Earlier this year, he starred alongside Colin Farrell in Andrew Haigh’s miniseries THE NORTH WATER, and can currently be seen in BBC One’s SAS Rogue Heroes as Paddy Mayne, with fellow Bespoke voice Corin Silva.  


Other films include LITTLE FISH, JUNGLELAND, SEBERG, MONEY MONSTER with George Clooney, and UNBROKEN, directed by Angelina Jolie. In 2018, Jack starred in Benedict Andrew's radical production of CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF with Sienna Miller.


Jack recently wrapped filming LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER for Blueprint Pictures and Netflix.


Born in Derbyshire, Jack has a natural Northern accent. He can exaggerate this to great affect, but also pare it back to a subtle Northern hint. Jack's down-to-earth nature and endearing, honest voice brings a unique element to all projects. Listen to his voice reels here.




In this classic story from D.H. Lawrence, Jack plays grounds-keeper Oliver Mellors, who begins an affair with Lady Chatterley (Emma Corrin). The film will be released in select cinemas this Friday, 25th November, before streaming on Netflix from Friday 2nd December.Famously controversial,  D.H. Lawrence's romantic novel faced censorship due to its 'explicit' descriptions of physical and emotional intimacy between a wealthy" woman and a working-class man. This latest adaption promises to be an "invigorating spin on D.H. Lawrence’s pioneering novel".




From the same creators as Peaky Blinders, SAS Rogue Heroes follows a group of the toughest and brightest (and most reckless) soldiers during World War II, who form a small undercover unit to cause mayhem behind enemy lines.In the six-part drama, Jack plays Paddy Mayne, a rash but heroic founding member of the SAS who struggled to reintegrate into society after the war.


“As you’d expect from the man who brought us Peaky Blinders, the programme was uproarious, a punchy, bucking colt of a true Second World War story that grabbed the viewer (well, this one, anyway) by the lapels from the outset.”


Carol Midgley, The Times


“As a romantic hymn to raw courage the whole bang-shoot is a riot. Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight brings with him from gangland Birmingham a rambunctious taste for boys’ own machismo and cruel comic-strip violence, underscored by lashings of heavy metal, punk and, er, George Formby.”
