Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on often appearing as emotionally repressed characters] I think there's an immense drama in things being held back and hidden and unspoken. I'm the go- to guy when you're doing something in that convention. But also, communication is never perfect. What you're hearing isn't necessarily what I'm imagining you're hearing. That interests me more than repression. See more »


Both of his Oscar nominated roles came from playing a character named George. George Falconer in A Single Man (2009) and King George VI in The King's Speech (2010) for which he won the award. See more »
