Tim attended Strand School, and when he was younger he aspired to become a sculptor. After matriculating, he attended the Camberwell College of Art. Things would eventually change as he soon found opportunities for acting, although unlike most actors he never had any formal training.
His acting debut came when he was 21 years old, in the television film entitled “Made in Britain”. He continued his work with projects such as “King of the Ghetto” and “Meantime”. Roth started to become recognized after he starred as the apprentice hitman in the film entitled “The Hit”, which earned him an Evening Standard Award. This opened up opportunities for him in more films such as “Vincent & Theo”, and “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”. His net worth was now well established.
Tim became part of a group known as the Brit Pack, consisting of British actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis, Gary Oldman and Colin Firth. In the 1990s, Tim took roles in films such as “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction”, and continued making Tarantino films in “Four Rooms”, with his performance earning him a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination. He then became a part of the musical comedy “Everyone Says I Love You”, before trying his hand at directing with the film “The War Zone”, which would become critically acclaimed and earn numerous awards at various film festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival and the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival. His net worth improved further.
Tim was the original choice for the character of Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” films, but turned it down because of his involvement in “Planet of the Apes”. He then portrayed the villain Emil Blonsky/The Abomination in the Marvel film “The Incredible Hulk”. In 2009, he was cast to be part of the series “Lie To Me” in which he portrayed Dr. Cal Lightman who is an expert on facial expressions and body language. The character was based on Dr. Paul Ekman, who is a well-known expert on body language. One of his latest projects was playing FIFA President Sepp Blatter in “United Passions”, a film which is considered one of the worst of all time, and which Roth came to regret because of later allegations of corruption against Blatter. Regardless, Roth has become well known for being the type of actor who jumps through various genres, showcasing his versatility and acting prowess.
For his personal life, it is known that Tim and Lori Baker had a son Jack in 1984, who also became an actor. In 1993, Tim married Nikki Butler, and they have two sons.
