Mark Strong (born Marco Giuseppe Salussolia; 5 August 1963) is a British film and television actor. He is known for his role in the television series Our Friends in the North and films such as RocknRolla, Body of Lies, Syriana, The Young Victoria, Sherlock Holmes, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Kick-Ass, Green Lantern, Zero Dark Thirty, Robin Hood, John Carter, The Imitation Game, Mindscape and Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Biography

He lives in London with his wife, Liza Marshall, and their two sons, Gabriel & Roman. In an interview he said he is content living a relatively normal life in London: “I’ve got no desire to live anywhere else. I was born here, my wife was born here, my kids were born here and this is where we’re going to stay,” he says. “I feel like I have a lovely balance. I’m able to keep my head below the parapet. I get on with my work, I have a family and I get on the tube. It just so happens that I’m doing this job.

He is a longtime friend of actor Daniel Craig, a co-star in Our Friends in the North, who is the godfather of Strong's elder son. He dubbed Craig into German, as German with an English accent was required for Obsession (1997).

In an interview he said that his style icon is David Bowie, and when he was a child he wanted to be the French actor Alain Delon: "I remember watching him in films and though I couldn't understand a word he was saying I remember thinking he looked great. Failing that, an astronaut, after watching the moon landing on a tiny, portable, black-and-white TV at my gran's house". Strong was named one of GQ's 50 best dressed British men in 2015.

Strong's greatest inspiration is Nelson Mandela: "I made a film this summer about the end of apartheid in South Africa – his suffering, coupled with his ability to remain tolerant, is staggering".

Just like his character in Fever Pitch, Mark Strong supports Arsenal F.
