Most widely recognized for his role as World War I veteran Frank Gadney on the well-received BBC period drama "Lilies," he got his start on a two-episode run of the police procedural "Stanton Blues" during its third season.

He found an opportunity to work with revered director Richard Linklater in 2008's "Me and Orson Welles," starring Zac Efron and Claire Danes.
