Spall received critical acclaim for his performance in Secrets & Lies (1996), for which he was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Subsequently, he starred in supporting roles including The Last Samurai (2003), Peter Pettigrew in the Harry Potter film series (2004-2010), played Albert Pierrepoint in Pierrepoint (2005), Beadle Bamford in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Peter Taylor in The Damned United (2009) and Winston Churchill in the The King's Speech (2010).

Biography

Spall is married to Shane and has three children: Pascale (born 1976), Rafe (born 1983), who is also an actor, and Mercedes (born 1985). He lives in Forest Hill, south-east London.

In 1996, Spall was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, but has since been in remission. He has said of his illness: "I didn't know what made me ill but stress had something to do with it and the point is now to head off stress at the pass. It made me aware of things and become more selective. I am less worried about employment. I really do my homework so I am not getting stressed on the set because I don't know what I'm doing."

He is the owner of a Dutch barge that he and his wife have been sailing around the British Isles as part of a BBC Four TV series Timothy Spall: Back at Sea.

Cela fait trois ans que Alice sillonne les mers en tant que capitaine du navire Wonder, le vaisseau de feu son père, le Lord Kingleigh. En 1875, après son retour d'un de ses voyages en Chine, Alice reçoit la visite d'un mystérieux papillon bleu. Elle devine tout de suite qu'il s’agit d'Absolem. Lui faisant confiance, elle le suit, et c'est grâce à lui qu'elle traverse un miroir. De l'autre côté, Absolem fait savoir à Alice que le Chapelier Fou, le grand ami de cette dernière, est en danger. Sans hésiter, Alice rejoint vite la demeure du Chapelier, qu'elle trouve mourant (souffrant de tristesse et d'anxiété en pensant que sa famille est encore vivante). D'après la Reine Blanche, Mirana, le seul moyen de le sauver est de remonter le temps. La mission d’Alice est donc de sauver le Chapelier en sauvant sa famille en essayant de ne pas se faire attraper par le Temps lui-même, qui a collaboré avec la perfide Reine Rouge, Iracebeth, la sœur de Mirana.

Deborah Lipstadt, historienne américaine et auteur reconnue, enseigne l'histoire et la mémoire de la Shoah. Elle se voit confrontée à un écrivain extrémiste, avocat de thèses controversées sur le régime nazi, le Britannique David Irving, qui la met au défi de prouver l'existence de la Shoah. Deborah Lipstadt ayant dénoncé dans un livre les manipulations et les préjugés idéologiques de David Irving, celui-ci l'assigne en justice pour diffamation, en Grande-Bretagne. Elle se retrouve dans la situation aberrante de devoir prouver que ce qu'elle a écrit sur Irving est vrai et fondé, notamment qu'il ment sciemment en niant l'existence des chambres à gaz. Comment, en restant dans les limites du droit, faire face à un négationniste prêt à toutes les bassesses pour obtenir gain de cause, et l'empêcher de profiter de cette tribune pour propager ses théories nauséabondes ?
