antagonist or protagonist - he s always so convincing.

vaudvetMay 12, 2014

His claim to fame was actually Dragonheart.

Earn MoneyApr 29, 2013

Is he some vegetarian or something?

GizzardApr 4, 2013

Not only he is in his 50's, he is still a wonderful actor on the run without any single harm!

MossMar 21, 2013

You turned 50 years old yesterday, so have a nice day!

Clutter CowFeb 26, 2013

He is mine, mine, mine, you clowns! So shut up and give us a break!

Miss TexasDec 22, 2012

No, Bob; he is so mine. Mine, mine, mine!

bobMar 22, 2011

IdaAug 25, 2009

He`s the best actor EVER! So damn HOT and very sweet :))) I love you so much David <3

Helen YatesAug 22, 2009

And it is known, even mentioned by both David and Anna that they have been togetehr since 2001 and their little girl Gracie was born in 2005 so who ever said that David was with Kate Hardie until 2006 is wrong.

Helen YatesAug 22, 2009

David Thewlis and Anna Friel are NOT married and recently, Anna has said that David went off the idea of marriage after he divorced Sara Sugarman. In reports until today, they has been no evidence that he was ever married to Kate Hardie. In recent interviews, he has only ever mentioned his disastorous marriage to Sara Sugarman. Surely, if he had married again, this would have been mentioned so I think this is a rumour.

He is So Cool and Awesome!I just Luv him!!!!!!!!!!
