Who is Craig Ferguson?

Craig was born in Glasgow, Scotland, on 17 May 1962 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds both British and American nationality. He’s an actor, comedian, writer, and TV show host, who has had roles in close to 100 movies and TV series, while he’s perhaps known best for having voiced Gobber in the 2014 animated action adventure movie “How to Train Your Dragon 2”. It was written and directed by Dean DeBlois, starred Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett and Gerard Butler, and follows Hiccup and his dragon Toothless who have just discovered a hidden ice cave filled with new types of dragons; the movie won 15 of the 77 awards for which it was nominated, including an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year.

Early life and education

Craig spent the first six months of his life in Glasgow, as the family then moved to nearby Cumbernauld, where he was raised alongside his siblings Lynn, Janice and Scott, by their father Robert and mother Janet Ferguson. Not a lot is known about Craig’s family, as he respects their privacy, but it’s known that they are somewhat wealthy.

Craig studied at Muirfield Primary School before moving on to Cumbernauld High School, and was bullied somewhat during his teenage years because he was overweight. He quit school aged 16, and started learning the trade from an electronics technician who worked at Burroughs Corporation.

Craig moved to New York City USA in 1983, aged 21, and found a job in construction; he then worked as a nightclub bouncer, but soon returned to Scotland.

Roles in TV series

Craig made his debut TV series appearance in a 1987 episode of the comedy “Saturday Live”, and the following years saw him appear in an episode of various comedies, such as “Red Dwarf”, “Chelmsford 123” and “The Les Dennis Laughter Show”.

In 1995 and 1996, Craig starred as Logan McDonough in the comedy “Maybe This Time”, created by Michael Jacobs and Susan Estelle Jansen, and which also starred Marie Osmond, Betty White and Ashley Johnson. It follows divorced woman Julia Wallace who’s focused on running her coffee shop, while her mother Shirley wants her to start dating again; the series was nominated for three awards. Some of Craig’s other notable performances in the ‘90s were in the comedy “Almost Perfect”, and voice roles in the animated short action “Freakazoid!” and the animated action adventure “Hercules”.

Between 1996 and 2004, Craig starred as Nigel Wick in 185 episodes of the comedy “The Drew Carey Show”, which follows Drew’s both personal and professional life; the series won 11 of the 35 awards for which it was nominated, including seven Primetime Emmy nominations. Craig then made a guest appearance in the 2005 episode “Papa Wheelie” of the romantic comedy drama “Life as We Know It”, and voiced himself in the 2009 episode “Truth or Square” of the animated family comedy “SpongeBob SquarePants” (voice role).

Some of Craig’s most recent roles in TV series have been in 2020 in the episode “Orson Welles In Norwich” of the biographical adventure comedy “Urban Myths”, the game-show “The Hustler”, and the 2022 episode “Cookie’s Day Off/Picture Furfect” of the animated short adventure “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery” (voice role).

Roles in movies

Craig made his debut film appearance in the 1989 drama “Dream Baby”, while a couple of his following roles were in the 1989 drama “High”, the 1992 comedy “The Bogie Man”, and the 1998 romantic horror comedy “Modern Vampires”.

He gained recognition with his portrayal of the main character Matthew in the 2000 crime comedy “Saving Grace”, directed by Nigel Cole, and which also starred Brenda Blethyn and Martin Clunes. The movie follows the life of a British widow whose husband has recently committed suicide, and it won four of the 14 awards for which it was nominated, including a BAFTA nomination.

Some of Craig’s other notable performances in the 2000s were in the 2003 romantic comedy “I’ll Be There”, the 2005 drama “Niagara Motel”, and the 2009 romantic comedy “The Ugly Truth”.

What marked the 2010s for him was perhaps his voicing of Lord Macintosh in the critically acclaimed 2012 animated adventure comedy “Brave”, written and directed by Mark Andrews, and which starred Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson. It follows Princess Merida who has brought chaos to her kingdom with her behavior, and who has now accidentally turned her mother into a bear; the movie won 21 awards, including an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, while it was nominated for 48 other awards.

Three of Craig’s most recent movie roles have been in the 2019 animated action adventure “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” (voice role), the 2019 animated short action “How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming” (voice role) and the 2020 romantic comedy “Then Came You”.

Craig married his second wife Sascha Corwin on 18 July 1998, and she’s perhaps known best for being the founder of Los Angeles’ Spy School.

Sascha gave birth to their son in 2001, but she and Craig divorced in 2004, although remaining equally involved in raising their boy.

On 21 December 2008, he married his third wife, the American art dealer Megan Wallace-Cunningham, and she gave birth to their son in 2011.
