Personal Quote:

[on his role as Arthur Clennam in the BBC's Little Dorrit (2008)] Arthur would never imagine that Little Dorrit would fall for him. She falls in love with him and he doesn't see it, and that's the love story that goes through the whole piece. It's a wonderful Dickens potboiler, apart from anything else. See more »

Trivia:

He is of Scottish (father) and Welsh (mother) descent. See more »
