Personal Quote:

Heroes (2006), Desperate Housewives (2004), The Sopranos (1999) - they're all very stylized. The Wire (2002) is much more rooted in realism and honesty. In American television, I can't think of anything I'd rather have been in because it has got something to say and that is the kind of thing I want to do. See more »

Trivia:

Appears in Agatha Christie: Poirot (1989) as the husband of Rachael Stirling. He stars in Game of Thrones (2011) where he plays an ally to Diana Rigg, the mother of Rachael Stirling. See more »
