Sir Thomas More (Jeremy Northam)

Sir Thomas More is a lawyer, author, and statesman and Lord Chancellor to King Henry VII.

More is a humanist and devout Christian who is opposed to war. He does, however, believe that Lutheranism is a threat to the Catholic church and should be stamped out and he's not above burning heretics.

Despite their differing dispositions, More and Henry have been friends for years and Henry relies on More for advice although he does not always agree with it or heed it. More attended Oxford University and was a successful lawyer becoming Henry's personal secretary. As such he is a true intellectual as well as a very pious man. More is married with four children.
