Personal Quote:

[on his professional quandary, as a six-foot-two actor, in playing Thorin, the Dwarf King] I think the biggest challenge for me is that when I walk into a room they think the wrong guy has come to the audition.

Trivia:

To get into character as Lee, his role in Cold Feet (1997), he took up aqua aerobics. See more »
