Jonathan Firth was born on 6 April 1967 in Essex, England, UK. With older brother Colin Firth, and sister Kate Firth (a voice coach), he was obviously destined to become an actor.

He attended the Central School of Speech and Drama, London, graduating in 1989. Not long after he landed the role of "Linton Heathcliff" in the 1992 film version of 'Wuthering Heights', followed by "Richard Grey" in 'Covington Cross' that same year and "Romeo" in the television version of 'Romeo & Juliet' in 1994.

He almost immediately landed the role of "Fred Vincy" in the celebrated British mini-series 'Middlemarch', which brought him attention beyond being Colin Firth's younger brother. Jonathan went on to play "Sergeant Troy" in the 1998 remake of 'Far from the Madding Crowd', before taking the role of "Prince Albert" in A & E's production of 'Victoria & Albert' in 2001, opposite Sir Nigel Hawthorne.

He has since played roles in 'The Inspector Lynley Mysteries' and 'Bait' in 2002, and recently completed the film 'Luther' in 2003.
