Born in Liverpool, England, Kapoor is nonetheless well-schooled in his chosen craft, including three years at the East 15 Drama School in London and 10 years of professional work in England before he relocated to Los Angeles with his wife (actress Meera Simhan) four years ago.

Among Kapoor's television credits are the British miniseries Peacock Spring, Blood & Peaches and the critically acclaimed, 10-part Land of Plenty, which recently aired on BBC America.
