After two seasons, at the age of 19, he became a student of the London academy of Music and Dramatic art, which he left early to pursue his path as a working actor.

He made a successful career in television, earning numerous credits in popular TV series such as Footballers' Wives and Holby City among many other TV productions. On the big screen David Schofield is best known as Senator Falco in Gladiator, as Mc Queen in From Hell, and as Mr. Mercer in Pirates of the Caribbean. For the BBC he played DCS John Salway in the award-winning Our Friends in the North. He played anti-Hitler conspirator Erwin von Witzleben in the film Valkyrie. In 2008, he starred as Kirill, in the web series of the same name.
