1[Speaking about his character on True Blood (2008)] I think Franklin is a bit of a troubled soul. I'm not sure that he's entirely well in the head but he also is up for the ride. He likes to go wherever the most dangerous energy is. Basically I'm a private detective which sounds ridiculous. Franklin Mott, Private Eye. Kind of like Magnum but without the mustache.
2When I got this job on season 3 and people say to me, "So what are you doing? What are you doing now?" I say I'm doing this show True Blood (2008) they go, "Oh my God! That is my favorite show!" Without exception. Everyone. Even my doctor. Absolute craziness. They don't say, "That's my second favorite show" or "I quite like that show" or "I've heard of that show".
1Has often been cast in roles in projects pertaining to the Tudor period of English history. He appeared in the 1998 film "Elizabeth" as Alvaro de Quadra and then played Thomas Cromwell in the Showtime series "The Tudors".

2His favorite actor is Daniel Day-Lewis.
