McShane grew up in Urmston, England , his father being a professional footballer with Manchester United. In Britain his most well-known role is that of roguish but dashing antiques dealer Lovejoy in the BBC drama series of the same name. He also enjoyed fame in the United States as a bounding British cad in the soap opera Dallas.
Even before Lovejoy, McShane was a pin-up as a result of appearances in television series such as Wuthering Heights (1967, as Heathcliff), Jesus of Nazareth (1977, as Judas Iscariot), and Disraeli (1979) -- as well as films like Sky West and Crooked (1966) and Battle of Britain (1969).
