Personal Quote:

I was watching The X Factor the other day and I was thinking: you have no idea of rejection. This is the first thing you've done. You've wanted it all your life? Yeah, all your 16 years. Be an actor. Be an actor for about two years and see how that goes, because it's constant. The number of jobs that you get as a ratio to the number of times you are rejected is incredible. See more »

Trivia:

Has two children - a son, Joe, and a daughter, Grace - with longtime partner Martin Freeman. See more »
