Welsh actor and singer who began his career on the stage, performing in many of London's West End productions such as "Rent," "Miss Saigon," and "Piaf" before getting his breakthrough role in Hollywood starring in the "Clash of the Titans" 2010 remake, playing Apollo.
Following his debut, Evans was cast in such action and thriller films as "Immortals" (2011), "The Raven" (2012), and the re-imagined "The Three Musketeers" (2011), in which he played Aramis.
In 2013, Evans starred as the main antagonist Owen Shaw in the blockbuster "Fast & Furious 6," and also played Bard the Bowman in Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit." Evans also portrayed the vampire Dracula in the character's film origin story, "Dracula Untold." In 2017, Evans starred as Gaston in Disney's live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and portrayed American psychologist William Moulton Marston, creator of fictional character Wonder Woman, in the biographical drama Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.
Evans is openly gay. In a 2002 interview, he said, "Everybody knew me as a gay man, and in my life in London I never tried to hide it," and that by being open he would not have "that skeleton in the closet they can rattle out". In 2004, he said that his being out had not caused his acting career to suffer. In 2014, Evans acknowledged the importance of marketability, and that, although he does not hide his sexual orientation, he is reluctant to discuss it with the media. He dated Spanish model Jon Kortajarena.
