Julian Alexander Kitchener-Fellowes DLLondonGazette |issue=58757 |date=2008-07-07 |linkeddate=2008-07-07 |startpage=10149 |notarchive=y ] (born 17 August 1949 in Cairo, Egypt), known as Julian Fellowes, was an actor for over twenty years before winning the Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay in 2001 for "Gosford Park".

Fellowes is the youngest son of Peregrine Fellowes (a diplomat and Arabist who campaigned to have Haile Selassie restored to his throne during World War II) and his first wife, Olwen. Fellowes purchased the Lord of the Manor of Tattershall from the previous "Lord of the Manor", making Julian the 4th person to hold it. [ [http://www.tattershallwiththorpe.co.uk/peole/fellowes.htm Profile of the Lord and Lady of the Manor at Tattershall and Tattershall Thorpe.com] ] Fellowes was educated at Ampleforth College, Magdalene College, Cambridge and the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.

He played the part of Kilwillie in the television series "Monarch of the Glen". Other notable acting roles included the part of Claud Seabrook in the acclaimed 1996 BBC drama serial "Our Friends in the North". He has twice notably portrayed George IV as the Prince Regent in the 1982 television version of "The Scarlet Pimpernel" and the 1996 adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's novel "Sharpe's Regiment".

His novel "Snobs" was published in 2004. It focused on the social nuances of the upper class and concerned the marriage of an upper-middle class girl, Edith Lavery - the daughter of an accountant and socially aspiring mother - to Charles, Earl Broughton - the son of the Marquess of Uckfield. Fellowes himself claims to come from the "bottom end of the gentry", and thus says he drew on his inside knowledge of the aristocracy to paint an intricate portrayal of the behaviour and snobbery of the upper class. In the 1970s he also wrote romantic novels, using the name Rebecca Greville.

He launched a new series on BBC One in 2005, "Julian Fellowes Investigates: A Most Mysterious Murder", which he writes and also introduces on screen. He also penned the script to the current West End musical "Mary Poppins", produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Disney, which opened on Broadway in December 2006. In late 2005 Fellowes made his directorial debut with the film "Separate Lies". He is the presenter of "Never Mind the Full Stops", a panel-based gameshow transmitted on BBC Four from mid-2006.

Other screenwriting credits include "Vanity Fair".

He regularly writes speeches for members of the Conservative Party.

On 28 April 1990, he married Emma Joy Kitchener (who was at that time a Lady-in-Waiting to Princess Michael of Kent, and great-great-niece of the 1st Earl Kitchener) and assumed the name Kitchener-Fellowes by deed enrolled with the College of Arms in 1998. They have a son, Peregrine.
