Dev Patel stars in "The Newsroom" on HBO as Neal.

On the big screen, Patel stars in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," opposite Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith, as Sonny Kapoor. Patel also recently wrapped shooting a starring role opposite James Franco and Ashley Hinshaw in the independent film "Cherry."

Dev Patel delighted audiences as the underdog leading man, Jamal, in the runaway hit "Slumdog Millionaire," which won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. He received rave reviews for his performance and garnered a number of award wins including the National Board of Review Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, The British Independent Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer, The Broadcast Film Critics Choice Award for Best Young Actor, and The Chicago & Washington Film Critics' Awards for Most Promising Performer.

"Slumdog Millionaire" was only Patel's second acting role — British audiences know him from the Channel 4 cult series "Skins," where he was selected from an open casting call of hundreds to play the role of Anwar.

Patel was last seen in theaters starring in M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" as Prince Zuko.

In addition to his acting talents, Dev is a Black Belt in Taekwondo, and was bronze medalist in the 2004 World Championships.

Dev makes his home in London, England.
