He’s been active in the entertainment industry since 1997, and has appeared in both UK projects as well as international productions.

Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

While Lee was born in Burnley, he grew up in nearby Brierfield and attended Edge End High School. The secondary school was operational until sometime in 2006, when it merged with Mansfield High School. During his time there, he was inspired to pursue a career in acting by a drama teacher, who encouraged him to try his hand at professional theatre.

After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Accrington and Rossendale College, then furthered his studies by enrolling at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Located in Hammersmith, it is the oldest drama school in the UK, with many of its graduates going on to find careers in the UK or in Hollywood, the Royal National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company, BBC, and Broadway. After he completed his education, he was mainly put in small roles, until he was cast in his first major role in BBC’s “Nature Boy” in 2000.

In 2001, Ingleby appeared in the television movie version of “The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby”, before trying his hand at screenwriting for the short “Cracks in the Ceiling” which he also appeared in. In 2002, he appeared in a small role in the theatrical release of “Borstal Boy” before having a string of television guest appearances, including in “Hustle”, “Cadfael”, and “The Bill”. He then gained a supporting role in “Ever After”, appearing alongside Drew Barrymore, and “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” in 2003.

In 2004, he had a small role in ‘Haven” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and then made a guest appearance in the ong-running BBC TV series “Doctor Who”. Two years later, he was cast in “The Street” playing an abusive husband, was also a part of the television adaptation of “The Wind in the Willows”, and appeared in the modernized version of “Rapunzel” on BBC which was a part of the “Fairy Tales” series.

Recent Projects

In 2007, he gained one of his most prominent roles in “Inspector George Gently”, on which he worked for a decade. Concurrently, in 2008, Lee worked on the three part television project “Place of Execution”, playing the role of DI George Bennett.

He also performed regularly on stage with credits such as “Midsummer Night’s Dream”, “The Pillowman”, and “Our Class”. In 2011he appeared in “Being Human” as a vampire elder, and in “Luther” in which he portrayed serial killer Cameron Pell. In 2013, he voiced the Sheriff of Nottingham in an audio production of “Robin Hood”, a role which he would reprise in a follow up called “HOOD – The Scribe of Sherwood”. This began a string of audio projects under Spiteful Puppet.

The following year he worked on the Irish-British co-production series entitled “Quirke”, in which he played Leslie. He then played the titular character in the new computer generated version of the show “Bob the Builder”, and around the same time, worked on the spoken narration version of the album “Please Come Home”, which was released under the name “Lonely Robot”. In 2016, he had the role of a father of an autistic child in the BBC show “The A Word”, a role he continues to play. A few of his latest projects include “Warship”, “Line of Duty”, and “Criminal: UK”.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Ingleby’s romantic relationships. He has not been public about this aspect of his life, preferring to keep it away from media attention. His online account states that he is a husband, indicating that he is married though no details have been shared about his partner. It is also not known if he has any children. He prefers to keep a separation between his personal and professional life. He enjoys acting and loves playing sleuth characters and the all-around good guy.

Similar to numerous actors, he is active online through accounts on social media. He has an account on Twitter on which he has over 17,000 followers, using the platform to promote some of his recent and upcoming projects. However, he doesn’t post there often, at times taking months in between his posts. He’s also become an advocate of spreading awareness of autism, due to his most recent role portraying the father of an autism sufferer. There is also a Facebook page named after him, though it is likely a fan page and not anything he manages as it mainly posts about projects he’s recently worked on, without anything to connect the account to him personally.
