His feature film debut was in the fantasy war epic 300 (2007) as a Spartan warrior; his earlier roles included various stage productions, as well as starring roles on television such as in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama Hex (2004–05).
The last still is from Eden Lake. He is thinner than usual because this film followed Hunger (by Steve McQueen), when he lost a lot of weight, to embody Bobby Sands, member of IRA who died on hunger strike. -- Clic 2X to see Bobby Sands article.
