Since his RADA graduation, he signed with notable actors agency Hamilton Hodell, and has played major parts in Declan Donnellan's company Cheek by Jowl's productions The Changeling (in which he played Alsemero and for which he received an Ian Charleson Award 2006 Commendation), and Cymbeline (Posthumus Leonatus & Cloten), for which he won the Laurence Olivier Award.

His screen credits include Randolph Churchill, son of Winston Churchill the wartime Prime Minister, in the film The Gathering Storm. He also appeared in a leading role in Joanna Hogg's film Unrelated (2007).

His Donmar Warehouse credits include Cassio in Michael Grandage's production of Shakespeare's Othello alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor to much critical acclaim[1][2][3][4] and Lvov in their West End revival of Chekhov's Ivanov.

His TV credits include Detective Martinsson in the BBC drama Wallander , Bill Hazledine in Suburban Shootout and William Buxton in the Christmas edition of BBC costume drama Cranford.

He will portray Loki, Thor's nemesis in the 2011 Marvel Studios feature film Thor directed by Kenneth Branagh, whom he has worked with before on Ivanov and Wallander.[5] He also auditioned and screen-tested for the role of Thor, but Branagh thought he was more suitable for the Loki role.[6]
