Lucius Vorenus - Kevin McKidd

Rome - this autumn on BBC TWO

Lucius Vorenus - Kevin McKidd

The hard essence of a professional Roman soldier. Honourable and severe, he is unforgiving and pitiless when crossed. A dour and pragmatic man, with a tendency towards self-laceration. Loyal to his wife Niobe.


Kevin McKidd began his acting career on the stage, starring in The Silver Darlings, for which he won the Gulliver Award.


He made his film debut in 1996 with Trainspotting and Small Faces.


His other film credits include Kingdom of Heaven, De-Lovely, The Purifiers, Sixteen Years of Alcohol - for which he was nominated for Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards - One Last Chance, Nicholas Nickleby, Dog Soldiers, Topsy-Turvy, Hideous Kinky, Regeneration, Dad Savage, Max, Bedrooms and Hallways and The Acid House.


His television credits include Gunpowder, Treason and Plot, North Square, The Key, Anna Karenina, Richard II and Looking After Jo Jo.


McKidd's theatre credits include Richard III, Britannicus - for which he won an Ian Charleston Award - 'Tis Pity She's a Whore and Far Away.


He has just completed filming The Virgin Queen, a four-part historical drama for the BBC, and is currently in Tunisia, shooting The Last Legion for Dino de Laurentis.
