Early life

The future Coupling star's first roles came as a member of the supporting cast in shows such as Is It Legal?, The Bill and Peak Practice. In 2000, his role as Patrick Maitland in the aforementioned Coupling rocketed him to being a household name, and his part in The Forsyte Saga from 2002 to 2003 only helped this.

His performance was nominated for a Tony Award after the play was brought to New York a year later.
