Interesting Facts

1 He'd been considered for the role of "Montgomery" in The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996) then, as filming was due to start, he was cast as "Edward Douglas", replacing Rob Morrow, who'd dropped out.
2 He was in a relationship with actress Anna Friel from 2001 - 2010. They have a daughter, Gracie Ellen Mary Thewlis, born on July 9, 2005.
3 Because he had such a bad experience working on The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996), he vowed never to see the final product. He skipped the opening premiere.
4 During the filming of The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996), he fell off a horse and broke his leg.
5 Turned down the role of Simon Gruber in Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995), which was later given to Jeremy Irons.
6 Graduated from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, England in 1984.
7 Was originally considered for the role of Professor Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001). He later got the role of Professor Lupin in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004).
8 He and his ex-girlfriend, Anna Friel, became The Faces Of Mulberry in Spring 2002.
9 Banned from entering China because of his role in Seven Years in Tibet (1997).

1 I'd only read a bit of the first book. And I just knew about all the media furor over it. But I'd not read books 2 or 3. I'd just read a bit of it. And I'd seen the films.
2 The making of 'Naked' was an absolutely phenomenal, mind-bending experience. That film was life-changing and put my career onto a whole different level.
3 I'd been a stepparent for about two years with a woman who had a child, and I came to realize I adored children and was good with them. So I was very happy when Anna got pregnant.
4 Yeah, well that's the best thing about it, I think, is knowing kids and kids getting mental when they know you're in it. Any kid you meet and anyone I know tells the kid you're in it and they get short of breath.
5 Restoration I did because I really loved e novel and I like Michael Hoffman, who directed it, but it wasn't a really challenging part for me. I'm not critical of the film: I just don't think I gave a very interesting performance.
6 On relationship with now ex-girlfriend Anna Friel: It's certainly not easy having to spend a lot of time apart, and having a five-year-old child who's got to be at school. So we need to learn how to organize our time really well because for months we will be in two different countries.
7 On Anna Friel: Before Anna, I'd had a few relationships and I'm glad I've been around a bit. I know where it's gone wrong or know who are the wrong people for me and who I might be wrong for.
8 I met the Coens here a few years ago and they said they liked my work.
9 I don't think Alfonso was a big expert on Potter either. He was feeling his way through it more than I was.
10 It wasn't the greatest script in the world, but not many people can say they've played a wicked king in a swashbuckling Arthurian special-effects monster movie.
11 It wasn't a good idea to work on 'Naked' in the first months of a marriage. I was living apart from my wife in a flat overflowing with books I was reading for the part.
12 And it was only released in London last week, so when I go back to England Monday or whatever, I am expecting heaps of adulation. I'm hoping there is. If that doesn't happen I will be disappointed.
13 Well I am afraid that I am going to die, because I have just put a down payment on a house.
14 I was still listening to the Beatles until I came here, you know.
15 When you do something well, this is the best job in the world.
16 The very best thing about doing it is seeing the reaction on kid's faces when you tell them you've done it.
17 I had such a nice time making it, and I can't wait to make the fifth one. The whole crew were just really, really lovely. All the costume people, the make-up girls, the kids - even my driver.
18 I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. I just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. It keeps the job interesting.
19 I don't worry. I'm more stoical. Of course I have insecurities. I fear getting older. I fear death and illness. I'm not prone to depression, but I get depressed because everybody gets depressed. Suddenly I'm away from my family or doing a job I'm not enjoying.
20 The lifestyle I have now, and the opportunities I have had, are all down to Mike [Leigh] getting me on board in Naked. After Cannes, my agent told me to get the next flight to LA. He was right. I had a part in Prime Suspect 3 by the end of the week.
