Born March 1, 1973, in Suffolk, England, Davenport studied literature and film in college before making his feature film debut in John Cleese's Fierce Creatures (1998). During this same period, he would become a star in his native land with his portrayal of the very uncharming Miles in the BBC series "This Life."
Since then, Davenport has made numerous appearances in film and TV on both sides of the Atlantic, with roles in "Coupling," The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Wedding Date (opposite Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney) and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
1937 Spain: lines are being drawn, sides are being chosen… and the world will never be the same. As the citizens of the village of Guernica live with the day-to-day realities of the Civil War, an American journalist secretly joins forces with a local press-office censor to work against the stringent restrictions that are becoming more common. But everything changes when German forces attack the town, and the freedom of the press becomes a vital weapon. Based on the historical events of the bombing that set the stage for World War II.
