Mamma Mia!'s Dominic Cooper
Dominic Cooper was born June 2nd, 1978 in London to a talented family. His grandfather was actually the founder of The Kinematograph Weekly, a newspaper for folks in the film industry!
He trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art for acting and film editing and almost immediately after graduating in 2001 he began landing roles. He performed alongside good friend and eventual roommate Late Night Host James Corden in the stage version and film adaptation The History Boys and in many smaller television and stage roles.
Eventually, he appeared as "Sophie's" fiancé "Sky" in the smash-hit film adaptation of the musical Mamma Mia! After that, he continued scoring starring roles in countless stage, film, and television productions like The Duchess, My Week With Marylin, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond, and the World of Warcraft film adaptation!
