Personal Quote:

[About how his This Life (1996) character, "Miles Stewart", was received by the public] A lot of drunken women came up to me in pubs telling me I was a bastard. To begin with, I tried to explain that the show wasn't real, but then I found a better tactic was to look them in the eye and say "Yeah, you know what? I am". See more »

Trivia:

He was considered for the role of Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) but the idea didn't prosper as the producers decided he was too good-looking for the role. See more »
