Personal Quote:

I was a big Bowie fan when I was younger and I still am. I even dyed my hair red and had the same hairstyle. He was very big in Sheffield, people don't realize how important he was - so were Marc Bolan, Lou Reed, Roxy Music... it was a very luxurious time. See more »

Trivia:

Like fellow countryman Gary Oldman, he started out his career playing villainous characters, only to later distance himself from that on screen image by taking more likable roles like the ones he played in Troy (2004) and North Country (2005). See more »

Trademark:

Often plays men who start off as heroes and, sometime during the course of the film, take a dark turn and become villainous (Agent 006 in GoldenEye (1995), Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), Ian Howe in National Treasure (2004)). See more »
