Born in Middlesbrough in 1979, Parker went on to attend the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where he graduated in 2002. By 2004, he was appearing in "History Boys" on the West End. He went on to play the role for the Broadway, Sydney, Wellington, Hong Kong, film, and radio versions of the play. Still more prestigious stage work would follow for Parker, including a turn as Hippolito in a West End revival of "The Revenger's Tragedy," as well as several productions at Shakespeare's Globe, such as "As You Like It" and "Henry VI Part 1" and "Henry VI Part 2," the latter of which gave Parker a chance to show off his musical skills, when he played the recorder in a tavern scene. He would find an even bigger audience for his musicianship in 2015, when he performed several of Frank Sinatra's songs for the "BBC Prom" (BBC, 2015-) staging "Prom 30: The John Wilson Orchestra Performs Frank Sinatra."
