Personal Quote:

I was gobsmacked by that. I was absolutely gobsmacked. All these things that are happening. I just sit back and . . . I can't believe it but I love it. I'm totally enjoying it. Because I'm a fan, a sci-fi fan, they have made a young boy's dreams come true. (after being told that his role in Torchwood (2006) had propelled him to "instantaneous National Treasure status") See more »

Trivia:

Spent some time in Los Angeles chasing movie and TV roles. Made final three in casting for the role of Will in Will & Grace (1998). When he didn't get the part, he demanded an explanation and found he had been rejected as "not gay enough.". See more »
