Personal Quote:

I've never considered myself a great actor. I'm a fluke. I work hard and I see through the bastards and to this day I have massive energy; I think it keeps a youthfulness in me. I never slow down because I love to work. I did four films last year. My agent says, 'Would you like to read the phone book next week for them [directors]?' And I say, 'Yeah OK.' See more »

Trivia:

Has twice played a character who loses a hand by having it severed with a meat cleaver: in Titus (1999) and Hannibal (2001). See more »

Trademark:

Often plays very proper and restrained British characters, as in The Remains of the Day (1993) and Shadowlands (1993). See more »

Nickname:

Tony

Star Sign:

Capricorn
