Acting was the last thing on Tommy Flanagan's mind after being slashed across the face while working as a DJ. The attack left Flanagan with a large permanent facial scar. He found a new sense of purpose after joining Robert Carlyle's Raindog Theatre Company in his native Glasgow, Scotland. It gave Flanagan direction and after appearing on several UK TV productions including "Screen One" (BBC, 1989-1993), and "Taggart" (ITV, 1983-2010), he scored his first big break in Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" (1995). Due to his distinctive appearance, Flanagan was often cast in as villains, criminals or hard men, but directors soon learned he could bring depth and nuance to any character, in particular garnering praise for his portrayal of Da in Lynne Ramsey's "Ratcatcher" (1999). Mixing UK TV with huge blockbusters, he added roles in "Gladiator" (2000), "AVP: Alien vs Predator" (2004), "Sin City" (2005) and "When a Stranger Calls" (2006) to his resume. However it was his role as Scottish biker Filip 'Chibs' Telford (a 'chib' is Scottish slang for a blade or knife) across seven seasons of "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008-2014) where Flanagan really made an impact on American television. This lead to guest appearances on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010), "Detroit 1-8-7" (ABC, 2010), and "Revenge" (ABC, 2011-15) among others.
