He won a scholarship to Oxford, going up to New College in 1979. There he was involved in student drama, and considered a career as an art historian. After Oxford, he turned down a scholarship to do postgraduate studies in Art History at the Courtauld Institute in London, and focused on his acting career.

Hugh Grant and Alan Cox in Eine sachliche Romanze (1995)

He had small supporting roles in two of Trevor Howard's last films, White Mischief (1987) and The Dawning (1988), with the latter released only after Howard had died in 1988. Grant was much criticized for telling an interviewer after Howard's death that the actor had been drunk throughout the filming of both films, and, on the latter, had been so advanced into alcoholism that he had been unable to stand up and even had had to be carried to the set.

He played a version of the Doctor in the Doctor Who (1963) spoof Comic Relief: Doctor Who - The Curse of Fatal Death (1999). He was subsequently strongly tipped to play the role in the revival Doctor Who (2005), but although he was flattered, he apparently felt it wouldn't take off. Christopher Eccleston was cast instead.
