Will Attenborough is a British stage and screen actor best known to our audience in his role as Oliver Hurst in BBC's Our Girl.

Part of the incredibly talented Attenborough family, that includes his father, the famous theatre director, Michael Attenborough, his mother actress Karen Lewis, his grandfather actor-director Richard Attenborough and his equally famous great uncle, Sir David Attenborough. What an incredibly talented family that has entertained Britain for decades!

Born in London, Will read English at Cambridge University before graduating in 2013, a year after his first professional credit in The Hollow Crown, part of the BBC's Shakespearean season. He then proceeded to blaze through with high profile roles alongside established stars and creatives, such as leading Jeremy Herrin's Another Country in its transfer to the West End, starring opposite Nicole Kidman in Photography 51, appearing in Channel 4's Utopia and in 2017 appearing in the Oscar-winning Dunkirk - 60 years after his grandfather appeared in the first movie about the infamous evacuation

Will is also known for his activism, such as representing Fossil Free UK to encourage the City of London and Equity, the performer's union, to move its fossil fuel investments into clean energy.
