Arthur Darvill (born Thomas Arthur Darvill in Birmingham on 17 June 1982[1][2]) played Rory Williams between series 5 and 7 of Doctor Who. He also played the Auton duplicate of the same character in the Doctor Who two-parter The Pandorica Opens / The Big Bang.

Arthur Darvill was educated at Bromsgrove School, Worcestershire and trained at Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. His first television appearance was in ITV drama He Kills Coppers and he met Matt Smith in Swimming With Sharks. Just prior to joining the cast of Doctor Who, he starred alongside Freema Agyeman when playing the role of Edward "Tip" Dorrit in Little Dorrit. He also wrote the 2009 musical Been So Long.

In February 2012, Darvill became the second companion actor of the revived series (after Noel Clarke) to appear in a Big Finish Productions audio drama when he guest starred in the audio story Paradise Frost, an episode of the Bernice Summerfield box set, Road Trip as Jared Jones. [3]

On 30 March 2015, Darvill was cast as Rip Hunter in a lead role for Legends of Tomorrow. Ironically, in the DC comics, Rip Hunter is a leader of a group of time-travellers. Darvill is also the fifth actor from Doctor Who to have a role within the series' universe.[4]
