Personal Quote:

[on his version of Hannibal Lecter] He loves fine art. He is a three-piece suit man. He loves classical music. He hates everything that is banal. And he loves the beauty of everything that's refined. He's trying to make friends with people, so I can't play that one card of being evil. It has to be hidden. See more »

Trivia:

Is very good friends with his Hannibal (2013) co-star Hugh Dancy since the pair starred together in the film King Arthur (2004). See more »

Trademark:

Often plays a character with a defective left eye: Ivan in Adam's Apples (2005), Le Chiffre in Casino Royale (2006), One Eye in Valhalla Rising (2009), Rochefort in The Three Musketeers (2011) and Duncan Vizla in Polar (2019) See more »
