Philip Glenister stars in Syfy's miniseries "Treasure Island" (2012) as Captain Smollet.

Born in Harrow, Middlesex, England, Philip Glenister was brought up in Hatch End in the London Borough of Harrow, north-west London. He is the son of the television director John Glenister and the brother of actor Robert Glenister.

Philip went to Hatch End Comprehensive School (now Hatch End High School) and the Central School of Speech and Drama. His interest in acting came from seeing his brother in a production about the Sex Pistols called "Killing Time at the Soho Poly."

Philip worked for the entertainment entrepreneur Robert Stigwood, then worked as a films publicist until he was 23. His brother's now former wife, actress Amanda Redman, persuaded him to apply for the Central School of Speech and Drama, and coached him for his audition. At Central, he was a contemporary of Graham Norton and Rufus Sewell. He also shared a flat with the actor Jamie Glover. 

Philip Glenister has appeared extensively on British television, most recently playing Gene Hunt in BBC's "Ashes to Ashes," reprising his role from its predecessor series "Life on Mars." He also starred in ITV's miniseries "Demons," as Rupert Galvin, and appeared in BBC's miniseries "Cranford." Other credits include recurring roles in "Early Doors," "Roger, Roger," "Clocking Off" and "Vanity Fair." He was also seen in the miniseries "Island at War" and "State of Play."
