David Yates

30 Nov 1963

Director, Producer

David Yates (born 30 November 1963) is an English director of film
and television, best known for directing the final four films in the
Harry Potter franchise. His first two Potter films (Order of the
Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince) became the highest-grossing entries in
the series after the first instalment, which was later surpassed by
Yates' Deathly Hallows, making him the most commercially successful
British director in recent years. He is the only director in the
series to be honoured with a Best Director accolade for his work on
Harry Potter. He achieved international attention for his award-winning short
films early in his career, which led to him becoming a prolific
television director with credits including the BBC costume drama The
Way We Live Now, the acclaimed political thriller State of Play and
the BAFTA-lauded two-part drama Sex Traffic. Due to the success of
these dramas and subsequent projects, Yates is considered as one of
Britain's most celebrated directors of film and television.
Throughout his works, Yates uses hand-held cameras to visually
provoke the subject matter; the technique is noted as one of his
directorial trademarks. Yates is married to Yvonne Walcott, who is the aunt of Arsenal
football player Theo Walcott. Description above from the Wikipedia article David Yates, licensed
