The off-beat, yet oddly handsome, Christopher Eccleston first came to prominence as the mentally-challenged teenage accused murderer Derek Bentley in the based-on-fact "Let Him Have It" (1991) before going on to play an assortment of intense, deeply conflicted characters. He really achieved big screen prominence with his expert portrayals of the dour, almost psychotic accountant in the snarky thriller "Shallow Grave" (1994) and the titular stonemason in "Jude" (1996), directed by Michael Winterbottom, as well as the plotting Duke of Norfolk in the Oscar-nominated Best Picture "Elizabeth" (1998).

QUOTES FROM Christopher Eccleston CHARACTERS

Leo Zhukovsky says: I don't have assignations with death. I prefer to let the dead mind the dead.

Malekith says: Where is she?

Frigga says: I'll never tell.

Malekith says: I believe you.

Malekith says: You do not need to come from so far. Asgardian. Death will to come to you soon enough.

Thor says: Not by your hand!

David Stevens says: If you can't trust your friends, then what then? What then?

Maj. Henry West says: This is what I've seen in the four weeks since infection. People killing people. Which is much what I saw in the four weeks before infection, and the four weeks before that, and before that, and as far back as I care to remember. People killing people. Which to my mind, puts us in a state of normality right now.

Jude Fawley says: We are man and wife, if ever two people were on this earth.
