Patrick George "Paddy" Considine (born 5 September 1973) is an English actor, film director, screenwriter, and musician. He has played a number of dark, troubled, and morally or mentally ambiguous characters. Considine frequently collaborates with Shane Meadows. He has starred in films such as In America, Dead Man's Shoes, The Cry of the Owl, Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee, The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End.

Considine came to prominence in the early 2000s with a string of performances in independent films that prompted The Observer to describe him as "the best-kept secret in British movies". In addition to leading and supporting roles in Hollywood films, he has acted in independent British films and television shows. He wrote and directed Tyrannosaur, a 2011 film based on his directorial debut, the 2007 short film Dog Altogether. He has also acted in and written several music videos, most notably Coldplay's video for "God Put a Smile upon Your Face" and the Arctic Monkeys video for "Leave Before the Lights Come On".

Considine has received an Evening Standard British Film Award, Empire Award, and Thessaloniki Film Festival Awards, as well as eight other award nominations for his acting. He has also won a BAFTA Award, British Independent Film Award, Silver Lion at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, and the Seattle International Film Festival Short Film Jury Award (Narrative Special Jury Prize) for his short film Dog Altogether. He won a second BAFTA Award, British Independent Film Award, and a World Cinema Directing Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival for Tyrannosaur.

Biography

Considine remains private in his personal life and once stated that if he ever became a celebrity, he'd "disappear and go and make shoes like Daniel Day-Lewis" (a reference to Day-Lewis' sabbatical working as a cobbler in Italy). Considine lives in Burton upon Trent with his family. Considine's late father was Irish.


Health
In April 2011, Considine revealed that he had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. Although initially reassured by the diagnosis, he continued to struggle in social situations until he was diagnosed in 2013 with Irlen syndrome, a condition in which the brain cannot adequately process visual stimuli. His condition has improved significantly since he began wearing purple Irlen filters.

During Stalin's rule of the Soviet Union in the early 1950s, Ministry of State Security (MGB) Agent and war hero Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy) uncovers a strange and brutal series of child murders. MGB leadership refuses to acknowledge the deaths as murders, however, because Soviet doctrine states that only capitalism creates serial killers. The son of Leo's partner is murdered by the serial killer, and during Leo's investigation, his wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), is accused of being disloyal to the state. Leo suspects that his amoral and ambitious enemy in the MGB, Vasili Nikitin, is behind the charges. Leo refuses to support the accusation, and he is forced to take a demeaning militia position in the town of Volsk. Raisa accompanies him and must work as a janitor.

Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. The National Union of Mineworkers was reluctant to accept the group's support due to the union's public relations' worries about being openly associated with a gay group, so the activists instead decided to take their donations directly to Onllwyn, a small mining village in Wales, resulting in an alliance between the two communities. The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.
