Personal Quote:

(On his character in Our Friends in the North (1996)) There's a kind of simpleness about him but that doesn't mean he's stupid," Strong says fondly, "and a kind of hardness but that doesn't mean he's not vulnerable. He's just someone who's working his bollocks off to do something and get somewhere despite all the limitations holding him in." See more »

Trivia:

His theatre break was in 'Napoli Milionaria' at the National Theatre and his television break in 'Our Friends in the North'. See more »
