Luke Evans, set to star in Dracula Untold (October 10), grew up in the south of Wales, winning a scholarship at 17-years-old to study acting at the London Studio Centre. Some of us may know Evans from action flicks like The Hobbit and Clash of the Titans, but others, who have been following his early days, know him from his performance in Boy George‘s 2002 stage musical Taboo and the 2007 West End revival of Rent. Back in 2010 Anglophenia named Evans as a breakout star to look out for. Were we right? Let’s a take a peek at Evans making his rounds:
