Hot, British and One to Watch: Luke Evans
The 32 year-old actor always seems to be on the verge of breaking out. He was Aramis in The Three Musketeers, Zeus in The Immortals, and Detective Fields in The Raven. He will next be seen in Peter Jackson’s, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Here and Back Again as Bard the Boman.
Here’s a description of the character, Bard the Boman from Empire Online.
Bard is the son and heir of Girion, the last king of old Dale. A haunted type, he carries the emotional baggage of his father’s slaughter by the dragon Smaug and became known as “the grim” because of his sour disposition. But, as his name suggests, he’s also a skilled archer, a talent that comes in useful when Bard has his own confrontation with the scaly, treasure-hoarding beast.
Luke Evans was in a small movie that is worth watching. He played Andy Cobb, the faithful handyman pining for the title character in Stephen Frears adaption of Posy Simmond’s graphic novel Tamara Drewe.
It was recently announced that he’s attached to the new Fast and Furious 6 moive.
