You might not know his name, but you’ve definitely seen his face.
He first caught my attention in The Stranger, a series adaptation of Harlan Cobin’s novel of the same name. This gripping thriller had me hooked, and on permanent lookout for more British psych dramas and thrillers (I'm obsessed).
The more I watched, the more I saw his face; and the more I saw his face, the more I began to choose shows based on the inclusion of his face (it was only when writing this article, that I finally learned his name).
Seems I’m not the only one.
Watch: Fool Me Once official trailer. Post continues after the video.
Armitage is currently starring in Netflix’s number one series and movie globally — Fool Me Once, and The Lodge (not currently on Netflix Australia).
But the British actor is no newcomer to the acting scene, having starred in a string of British and American television shows and movies (including as a serial killer in Hannibal), as well as a stack of theatrical performances — his most notable being The Crucible, for which he won an Olivier Award for best actor. He’s also lent his voice to a long list of audiobooks and narrating projects.
