Who is Ioan Gruffudd? Wiki Bio

Ioan Gruffudd was born in Llwydcoed, Aberdare, Wales on 6 October 1973 – his zodiac sign is Libra and he holds British nationality. He is an actor who gained recognition after portraying Harold Lowe in the romantic film “Titanic” in 1997. Ioan was partly raised in Llwydcoed with a younger brother and a younger sister by their father Peter and mother Gillian who are both retired teachers. The family moved to Cardiff when he was six, where he studied at Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Aberdar and two other Welsh schools. He was interested in playing the oboe during his teen years, and was a member of the South Glamorgan Youth Orchestra for over five years, but eventually chose acting over music.

He launched his acting career when he was 13, when he appeared in the film “Austin”, before making his debut TV series appearance in “Pobol y Cwm” in 1987. He joined the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art after turning 18, but was given only insignificant roles which led to him wanting to leave many times – he decided to stay and eventually played the lead role in the play “Hedda Gabler” in 1995. After being praised for his performance, he was invited to star in the TV series “Poldark”.

Ioan was then invited to appear in the film “Titanic”, which made him somewhat famous and was then cast as the lead character in the historical war series of films “Hornblower”.

He starred alongside Alice in “102 Dalmatians” in 2002, and then appeared in critically acclaimed movies such as “Black Hawk Down” in 2001 and “King Arthur” in 2004. More lead roles followed in “Amazing Grace” in 2007, “Fantastic Four” in 2005, and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” in 2007. He has been portraying the lead character Dr Andrew Earlham in the medical miniseries “Liar” since September 2017, while he has also been portraying Dr. Daniel Harrow in “Harrow” since 2018.

Ioan can be seen in two video games – “Fantastic Four” in 2005 as Reed Richards or Mister Fantastic, and in “Diablo III” in 2012 as The Necromancer.
