Austere yet handsome, Mark Strong's chameleon-like talents made him a hugely sought-after villain in both big-budget action and independent films after a lengthy career in his native England. He gave good bad guy in Guy Ritchie's "Revolver" (2005), the dramatic thriller "Syriana" (2005), and Matthew Vaughn's fantasy "Stardust" (2007). Strong played the heavy in the comedy "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" (2008) before reuniting twice with Ritchie to anchor "RocknRolla" (2008) and essay the satanic Lord Blackwood in the Robert Downey, Jr./Jude Law hit adventure, "Sherlock Holmes" (2009). Continuing to work with a laundry list of great film directors, Strong worked twice under the direction of Ridley Scott as the Jordanian Head of Intelligence in "Body of Lies" (2008), and then wreaked further havoc as Godfrey opposite Russell Crowe in "Robin Hood" (2010). Also that year, Strong scared a younger audience as the mob boss in the kids-turned-superheroes hit "Kick-Ass" (2010). With an admitted penchant for playing his deliciously evil roles to the hilt, Strong counted greats such as Sir Ian McKellen among his many fans. Going bad only ended up being a good thing for this talented actor, with work ranging from espionage dramas "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" (2011), "The Imitation Game" (2014) and "The Catcher Was A Spy" (2018) to more light-hearted heavies in action drama "Kingsman: The Secret Service" (2014) and DC superhero introduction "Shazam!" (2019).
