Biography

British television star Rupert Evans is best known for his roles in such sweeping costume dramas as the TV movie adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's heralded novel "Sons and Lovers" and the romance-driven BBC mini-series "North & South." Yet his career began in 2001 with a one-off role on the contemporary comedy "My Family." After training at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, Evans simultaneously pursued work in television and theater, landing his first noteworthy part in 2002, when he snagged a series regular role in the brother-centered BBC drama "Paradise Heights." The show was re-structured as "The Eustace Bros." the following year without Evans, but by then he had moved on to another TV drama, the Scotland-set rescue series "Rockface." In 2004, he won his first major movie role in Guillermo del Toro's offbeat superhero adventure "Hellboy," playing compassionate FBI agent John Myers opposite American character actor Ron Perlman. This was followed by "North & South" and another period drama "Fingersmith." Since then, Evans has become a familiar face on British television, often appearing in mini-series adaptations of classic works of literature like the BBC's 2009 version of Jane Austen's "Emma" and the "A Midsummer Night's Dream" episode of "ShakespeaRe-Told." When he's not donning wigs and watch fobs for television, he can often be found performing Shakespeare on the stages of London's prestigious West End theater district.

.

"I’ve actually done quite a few independent movies that people have never seen. But I love doing them because it’s always more interesting and exciting – there’s a real sense of freedom because there’s no studio hanging over you. It’s almost like shooting movies in a guerrilla-esque fashion. It’s long hours and you’re working intensely but invariably you’re collaborating with the director and everyone has a real passion for the project." - from www.indielondon.co.uk, 2012
