In his teens he also went to the Scottisch Youth Theatre. He finished his law study and became a trainee at a law firm in Edinburgh. Unfortunately his partying lifestyle caused him to miss work and ultimately got him fired when he was 25.
His new goal was to become famous and he headed to London to realise his dream. He did several jobs to pay his bills and met up with someone he knew from the Scottish Youth Theate. He was selected for a role in the play of Coriolanus. His next role would be in a theater version of Trainspotting. He moved to Los Angeles at age 30 and started getting cast in bigger movies, mostly in small roles. The role which put him in the spotlight was that of King Leonidas in the movie 300. He since appeared in both action movies like Gamer and Law Abiding Citizen and romantic comedies like P.S. I Love you and The Ugly Truth.
