"I blame Ridley Scott really, because he was the person who went "I love Star Trek and I'd love it if you were in my movie" and people like Oliver Stone went "I hated Star Trek and I don't want you in Alexander (2004)!" I was really lucky there". See more »


Was one of the fan-favourites to play Prince Doran in Game of Thrones (2011). Although he joined the Game of Thrones cast only in 2014, fans have been suggesting his name from as early as 2012, for the role of Doran. See more »
