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.
