Beginnings of Careers on Stage
After graduating from London Studio Centre, Evans performed in a variety of West End theater plays, including “La Cava,” “Miss Saigon,” “Rent,” “Avenue Q,” and “Taboo.” In 2008, when he earned the character of Vincent in Peter Gill’s “Small Change,” he made a breakthrough. This performance caught the attention of American casting directors and won Evans a nomination for the Outstanding Newcomer category of the Evening Standard Award. In 2008, he also portrayed Yves Montand in the television series “Piaf.”
In 2010, Evans debuted on the big screen, starring in four feature films. First to be released was the biographical “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll,” in which he portrayed Clive Richards in a supporting role. Next, he portrayed the Greek deity Apollo in the action-adventure movie “Clash of the Titans.” Evans’ other two 2010 projects were the romantic comedy “Tamara Drewe” directed by Stephen Frears and the action blockbuster “Robin Hood” directed by Ridley Scott, in which he portrayed the Sheriff of Nottingham’s thug. Evans participated in four additional films in 2011: “Blitz,” “The Three Musketeers,” “Flutter,” and “Immortals,” in which he portrayed Zeus.

Evans debuted in two roles in 2013: Owen Shaw in “Fast & Furious 6” and Bard the Bowman in the second installment of Peter Jackson’s Tolkien adaption, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” He would repeat each of these roles in the respective sequels to these flicks. In the 2014 fantasy action film “Dracula Untold,” Evans portrayed both Vlad Drăculea and his alter ego Dracula. Subsequently, he appeared in the films “High-Rise,” “Message from the King,” and “The Girl on the Train.” In 2017, Evans portrayed Gaston in Disney’s live-action adaptation of its own “Beauty and the Beast,” and he also portrayed Wonder Woman inventor William Moulton Marston in “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.” “State Like Sleep,” “1010,” “Ma,” “Murder Mystery,” “Anna,” “Angel of Mine,” “Midway,” and “Crisis” are among his other significant works.

In 2018, he was cast as New York Times artist John Moore in the TNT historical drama series “The Alienist,” which was based on Caleb Carr’s eponymous novel.
