Edward Ashley is a British actor with a string of impressive TV and film credits to his name.  In 2024 he has a leading role as Lt. Col. John B. Kidd in the highly rated Apple TV+ wartime epic ‘Masters of the Air’.  He can also be seen in 'The Worst Man in London', a new film about master forger and blackmailer Charles Howell.  He will star as Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Rossetti.

In 2019 he appeared in Netflix’s award winning biographical drama ‘The King’ about the young King Henry V, playing Cambridge, one of the young King’s noble advisors.  

He is also known for playing Arthur Manley in the critically acclaimed 2016 film ‘The Lost City of Z’ which won a number of awards on the independent film festival circuit and told the story of a British explorer who disappeared whilst searching for a hidden city in the Amazon in the 1920.  The film also starred Tom Holland, Robert Pattison and Sienna Miller.  Prior to that he appeared in the Ron Howard directed ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ which recounted the true story of a New England whaling ship's sinking by a giant whale in 1820 that inspired the novel Moby Dick. 

Other major TV credits include playing William Gibson in the supernatural, semi historical, horror anthology series ‘The Terror’ on AMC as well as playing series regular William in the first two series of BBC One’s BAFTA award winning 'Last Tango in Halifax'.
