He was brilliant in that role and that show changed my career - I wouldn't have had Doctor Who (2005) without it. We auditioned every male actor under 30 in Britain for that and Aidan Gillen stole it. See more »

He wanted to be a Comic book artist in his teens but was advised against it due to being color blind. See more »
