Graham Norton is an Irish television and radio presenter, comedian, actor, author, and commentator based in the United Kingdom. For Disney, he voiced the character Moonwind in the 2020 Disney/Pixar film, Soul, a mystic who helps lost souls in The Great Before get over their obsessions.
Norton was born in Clondalkin, a suburb of Dublin and grew up in Bandon, County Cork. His family are members of the Church of Ireland. His father's family were from County Wicklow, while his mother is from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Norton took part in the TV program Who Do You Think You Are? to trace his ancestry. His father's direct ancestors originated in Yorkshire.
Norton was educated at Bandon Grammar School, in West Cork, and then University College, Cork, where he spent two years studying English and French in the 1980s but did not complete his studies after having a breakdown during which he refused to leave his room. In June 2013, he received an honorary doctorate from University College Cork. Norton moved to London and attended the Central School of Speech and Drama. He also worked as a waiter during that time. Upon joining the actors' union Equity, he chose Norton (his great-grandmother's maiden name) as his stage name, as there was already an actor called Graham Walker.
