Dominic Cooper stars in "Captain America: The First Avenger," opposite Chris Evans and Tommy Lee Jones, as Howard Stark.

Dominic Cooper is steadily emerging as one of the most exciting talents in the industry. Equally successful on stage and screen, Cooper continues to demonstrate his creative versatility.

Cooper was most recently seen in the independent drama, "The Devil's Double," which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and was screened at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival. Directed by Lee Tamahori and written by Michael Thomas, "The Devil's Double" is a taut action tale about the life of Latif Yahia, who was forced against his will to work as the body double for Uday Hussein. Through his role, Yahia gained access to Hussein's inner sanctum and witnessed corruption, violence and debauchery. Dominic plays the challenging dual roles of Yahia and Hussein. The film is slated for an international release.

Some of Cooper's other upcoming projects include "My Week with Marilyn," directed by Simon Curtis and co-starring Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench, with Cooper assuming the role of Milton Greene, the celebrated photographer and business associate of Marilyn Monroe. Cooper also recently landed the coveted role of Henry Sturgess in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." Directed by Timur Bekmambetov and co-starring Benjamin Walker and Anthony Mackie, the film is an adaptation of the best-selling Seth Grahame-Smith novel of the same name.

Dominic recently starred as Ben Sargeant in Stephen Frears' "Tamara Drewe," co-starring Gemma Arterton. Based on the graphic novel by Posy Simmonds, "Tamara Drewe" is a modern reworking of Thomas Hardy's nineteenth century novel, "Far From the Madding Crowd." In addition, Cooper was also recently seen in the coming-of-age drama, "An Education." Directed by Lone Scherfig and written by Nick Hornby, "An Education" follows a 16-year-old girl's self-discovery in 1960s London as she begins a relationship with a 30-year-old playboy. The film, co-starring Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson, screened at the 2009 Sundance, Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals, and was nominated for Best Picture by both the Academy Awards and BAFTA Awards.

Cooper also starred in the box office sensation "Mamma Mia!," the feature film adaptation of the beloved stage musical. With an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters and Amanda Seyfried, "Mamma Mia!" set box office records worldwide and became one of the highest grossing films of all time in the UK. Moreover, Dominic also starred in "The Duchess," a film based on Amanda Foreman's biography of the scandalous 18th century English aristocrat, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Directed by Saul Dibb, the period drama co-stars Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes.

Dominic's additional film credits include "The Escapist," directed by Rupert Wyatt and co-starring Brian Cox and Joseph Fiennes; "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men," directed by John Krasinski; the Tom Hanks-produced "Starter for Ten," co-starring James McAvoy; "Boudica"; "I'll Be There"; Neil Jordan's "The Good Thief"; and the Hughes Brothers' "From Hell."

Dominic received his professional training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Upon completion, he landed a role in "Mother Clap's Molly House" at the prestigious National Theatre under resident director Nicholas Hytner. He then starred in the Royal Shakespeare Company's"A Midsummer Night's Dream," before rejoining Hytner at the National Theatre for "His Dark Materials" and "The History Boys," which went on to win three Olivier Awards, including Best New Play.

Written by Alan Bennett, "The History Boys" later landed on Broadway, where it was the recipient of six Tony Awards, including Best Play. Dominic garnered Drama Desk and Evening Standard Award nominations for his lauded stage performance as the confident and seductive Dakin. Cooper also reprised the role in the acclaimed film adaptation of the play, where he was subsequently nominated for the Best Newcomer Award by the British Independent Film Awards and the Best Supporting Actor Award by the London Film Critics Circle.

Furthermore, Dominic starred on stage as Hippolytus in the heralded National Theatre production of Jean Racine's "Phèdre," with Dame Helen Mirren in the titular role. The production, directed by Nicholas Hytner, was also presented at Epidaurus in Greece, and The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington D.C.

In addition to his stage and film work, Dominic has also produced a number of acclaimed performances for television. Most recently, Dominic starred as Dave, the corrupt, smooth-talking mortgage salesman in the BBC Two production of "Freefall," a timely drama focusing on the now imploding world of finance and its devastating impact on the people at each end of the scale. He also starred as the dashing and handsome Willoughby in the recent BBC production of "Sense & Sensibility." Based on the beloved Jane Austen novel of the same name, the two-part television miniseries was directed by John Alexander and adapted by Andrew Davies.

Dominic's additional television credits include the Holocaust drama, "God on Trial," BBC's "Down to Earth," "Sparkling Cyanide," BBC's "The Gentleman Thief," Hallmark's "Davison's Eyes" and Steven Spielberg's acclaimed "Band of Brothers."
