The oldest of three brothers and three sisters, Paul Warren was born in Hillingdon, Middlesex, England in 1974.
Growing up with a keen passion for drama, music and monster movies, he formed the post-rock band 'Monkey Boy' with his brother, Mark, in 1995. A minimalist trio from London, consisting of two bass players and Paul the singing, front-man drummer, they generated a massive buzz on the underground punk rock scene.
Lockjaw Records signed the band in 1998 and immediately sent them out touring Europe, where they built a formidable following and critical acclaim from the likes of John Peel, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rocksound and Melody Maker.
In 2005 the band went on an indefinite hiatus and Paul set about pursuing work in the film industry. After attending an open audition for Alfonso Cuarón's 'Children of Men', he was offered work on the movie due to his thin frame and physical attributes.
His next job working with the legendary Stan Winston Studios on 'The Deaths of Ian Stone', would be a door opening into the world of performing in prosthetics, ultimately leading to a film career playing various creatures and roles in silicone/foam latex, working with, and being recommended by, some of the movie industries leading visual and make up effects supervisors, such as Shane Mahan (Terminator, Aliens), Conor O'Sullivan (The Dark Knight), Christopher Townsend (Industrial Light & Magic), Mark Coulier (Harry Potter), Kristyan Mallett (Dark Shadows) and David White (Thor: The Dark World).
Although known mostly now for his performances under heavy prosthetic makeup, he has also worked as a body double on Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix (doubling Daniel Radcliffe), X-Men: First Class, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and was one of the visual effects doubles for skinny Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America: The First Avenger.
Recent work includes World War Z, Jack the Giant Slayer, Last Days on Mars and Thor: The Dark World.
