  1. Just a heads up that the crest on his chest in the Robin Hood image has been altered, presumably someone fancasting him as Stannis Baratheon in ASOIAF.

  2. Miss Pettigrew is one of my favorite comfort watches, for both the cast (Mark Strong, Lee Pace, Ciaran Hinds, Amy Adams, hello) and the costumes. But I also just discovered his miniseries Our Friends in the North which I’m struggling through because while the plot is good, the various wigs the costume department slapped on all the male leads to indicate the progression of time are truly terrible.

  3. OMIGOSH, YES! With or without hair. Add a burnoose and one of THOSE beards…Mamma Mia! There is an Italian connection. Real name Marco?

    1. Good looking men are especially delicious in a burnoose and neatly trimmed beard. Makes you understand why The Sheikh was a hit back in the day and women fantasized about being carried off by a desert raider. Of course fantasy doesn’t mean you want it to really happen!

  4. Oh, God, I didn’t realize just how many movies of his I’d seen until I scanned this list. Mark Strong is just…dreamy!!!! And, he’s a good actor, too! ;) It’s so hard to pick a fave role: I LOVED him as Nick in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, and I wished he had more screen time. He was just so delicious in that Scarpia-esque role. He is giving me SERIOUS Andy Garcia vibes from Godfather III in the pic from The Long Firm.

  5. Stardust for me— partially because I haven’t partaken as much of his frock flicks, and partially because Stardust is just a movie that I really, really love.

  6. The Best Mr Knightley in the Best Emma! (although Jeremy Northam was rather good too). And Mark Strong is wonderful in the Long Firm – worth a look on Youtube.

  7. Don’t judge me, but I found excruciatingly hot as Sir John Conroy in Young Victoria. Like, how I totally get how the Duchess let him run rampant over her life.

    1. The real Conroy apparently had a lot of sex appeal and used it unscrupulously.

      1. But did he really look and sound like Mark Strong!??! I mean, when he growls it melts my soul!

        (the Victoria PBS series’ version of Ser John was not nearly as volcanically sexy)

  8. Plus, he was Merlin in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle!

  9. Stop me if you’re heard this one before – Mr Mark Strong as Gaius Julius Caesar? (He’s definitely got the face and charisma for a “Stupid Sexy Caesar” sort of villain…).
