Iain Glen bolted out of the gates as one of British theater's top leading men in the 1990s and essaying an eclectic screen résumé packed with Hollywood genre fare, heartfelt indie dramas and two of the most buzzed-about critical smash television hits of the early 21st century. A native of Scotland, Glen made a television splash in the U.K. crime drama "The Fear" (ITV, 1988) and won his first Hollywood lead in the historical film "The Mountains of the Moon" (1990). He romanced critics in a flurry of big-ticket Shakespearean productions through the 1990s, as well as high-profiles leads in the stage spectacle "Martin Guerre" and the titillating contemporary theatrical two-hander "The Blue Room" on both the West End and Broadway. He played villain to Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001), beginning a conspicuous run in heel roles, highlighted by a running character in the "Resident Evil" film series. Glen would become a regular denizen of prestige Brit series such as "City of Vice" (Channel 4, 2008), "The Diary of Anne Frank" (BBC/PBS, 2009), "Spooks" (a.k.a. "MI-5") (BBC 2002-2011) and the soapy phenomenon "Downton Abbey" (ITV/PBS, 2009-2016) In 2011, he became a familiar face to American TV viewers as a melancholy knight in service of an exiled princess on the sword-and-sorcery hit "Game of Thrones" (HBO 2011- ). Straddling genres and media, Glenn struck a rare balance as a stage idol in his native country, a character actor in Hollywood and a television actor of scene-stealing gravitas.
