After a stint as a childrens TV presenter with CITV and following training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), Darvill started his theatre career. His professional stage debut was in Edmund White’s Terre Haute, which earned him a Best Newcomer nomination at the 2007 Evening Standard Theatre Awards. Other theatre credits include ‘Stacy’ and ‘Swimming With Sharks’. His television debut came in 2008 in the ITV crime drama ‘He Kills Coppers’. The same year, he played Edward “Tip” Dorrit in the BBC serial ‘Little Dorrit’.

In June 2009, the musical Been So Long, based on Ché Walker’s 1998 play, opened at the Young Vic.

The musical was also performed at the Latitude Festival in July and had a run at the Traverse Theatre in August. Arthur received a Judge’s Discretionary Award from MTM for his music.
