Conleth Hill was born in Ballycastle, County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
His siblings are also in the entertainment business. His older brother is a cameraman, his sister is a producer and his younger brother Ronan Hill has won two Emmy Awards for his sound mixing on Game of Thrones.
Hill graduated from the Acting program of Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1988.
He maintains a full head of hair when he is on hiatus from Game of Thrones, which he is required to shave during filming.
He has never been married.
Hill made his Broadway debut in Marie Jones' Stones in His Pockets.
Hill played German professor Max Staefel in a 2002 television adaptation of Goodbye, Mr Chips (2002). He played "Mum" to Peter Kay's character "Geraldine McQueen" in Peter Kay's Britain's Got the Pop Factor... and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice, a spoof on the talent show genre of programmes.
Since April 2011, he has appeared as Lord Varys in the television series Game of Thrones, based on the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. Martin hinted, in a February 2013 post on his website, that he thought Hill would be a good choice to play the title character in a TV show based on Martin's science fiction novel Tuf Voyaging.
