He is perhaps best known for starring as Mick in the BAFTA-winning cult television series ‘This Is England ‘86’.  He received BAFTA and Royal Television Society Award nominations for his performance with the final episode recently named ‘The Greatest TV Episode of All Time’ by The Independent Newspaper. He also starred in subsequent series ‘This is England ‘88’ and ‘This is England ‘90’. 

In 2024 he stars as Secret Police Chief Osip Glebnikov in ‘A Gentleman in Moscow’ with Ewan McGregor, a new 8 part series for Showtime & Paramount UK based on the best-selling novel of the same name.  He has also been confirmed for a major role in Prime Video's much anticipated sci-fi series 'Blade Runner 2099'. 

Recent roles have included playing imprisoned killer Charles Stone in psychological thriller series ‘Without Sin’ (ITV) starring opposite Vicky McClure; and playing Novichok poison victim Charlie Rowley in ‘The Salisbury Poisonings’ (BBC).  And in 2023 he played the iconic role of Magwitch in the BBC/FOX/Disney TV adaptation of Great Expectations, alongside Olivia Colman. The show was exec-produced by Tom Hardy and Sir Ridley Scott.

Johnny first burst onto our screens in 2006 in the highly acclaimed, award-winning British film ‘London to Brighton’. The film was voted into Time Out Magazine’s ‘100 Greatest British Films of All Time’.  Celebrated British director Shane Meadows described Harris’s performance as "an incredibly bold and massively powerful performance, the best I’ve seen on celluloid for a long time.”

He has starred in many more film and TV hits such as the 2019 BBC TV series adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’, in which he played Scrooge’s abusive father, Franklin Scrooge, also exec-produced by Tom Hardy and Sir Ridley Scott; the epic BBC drama series ‘Troy: Fall of A City’ in which he played the powerful Greek King Agamemnon; BBC crime drama series ‘From Darkness’ and Sky’s ‘Fortitude’.

In 2017, Johnny made his debut as a screenwriter with the highly acclaimed feature film, ‘Jawbone’ which he also starred in and co-produced. He received a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Outstanding Debut, two BIFA Film Award nominations for his performance in the leading role, and a Writers Guild Award nomination for his screenplay.  He has recently stepped behind the camera to direct two music videos for the hit singles ‘Gravity’ and ‘I Woke Up’ by songwriting legend Paul Weller after the two first collaborated on 'Jawbone'.

Other major credits include feature films ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘Welcome to the Punch’ and ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ as well as TV shows ‘Medici’(Netflix) and Jack Thorne’s BAFTA-winning apocalyptic BBC series ‘The Fades’.
