Raza Jaffrey

Raza Jaffrey may be a fresh face to movie audiences abroad, but he’s already well known in the UK. This summer he will be co-starring in Sex and the City 2 as Carrie’s butler, Guarau, who helps here put her life in perspective. He’s been earning excellent reviews for his performance, and we’re pretty sure that his smouldering good looks won’t hurt his chances of making it big in Hollywood either!

Raza was born in 1975 to an Indian sea captain and an English mother. He studied English and Drama at Manchester University and later studied acting at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He had small parts in television shows like EastEnders and Casualty, but he soon became involved in London’s theatre scene. Raza preformed in a variety of productions including East is East, Romeo and Juliet and Cyrano de Bergerac. In 2002, Raza debuted on the West End as Skye in Mamma Mia!. He also had a starring role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Bollywood inspired musical Bombay Dreams.

In 2006, Raza created a dance-show called “RED,” which brings together dance movements such as hip-hop, ballet, flamenco and salsa and explores how Indian culture has influenced all of these forms of dance. He has recently crossed over from theatre into television.

From 2004 to 2007 he played Zafar Younis, a reckless young spy on Spooks and in 2008, he played Hari on Mistresses.  Raza has been married since 2007 to actress Miranda Raison, however in 2009 the couple announced that they had separated and were seeking a divorce. Catch Raza’s film debut when Sex and the City 2 opens on 28th May.
