Luke Evans stars as Zeus in Tarsem Singh's epic mythological fantasy "Immortals," opposite Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, Kellan Lutz, Isabel Lucas and John Hurt.

Evans will also be seen as Bard the Bowman in Peter Jackson's highly anticipated films "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again."

Luke Evans is a Welsh actor primed to turn heads among U.S. moviegoers with his upcoming starring roles. Evans was recently seen in Paul W.S. Anderson's star-studded 3-D spectacle "The Three Musketeers." Evans stars as Aramis, one of the disgraced musketeers taking on Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz) and The Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) in the hope of restoring their reputation as a force to be reckoned with. The film also stars Logan Lerman and Milla Jovovich.

Evans will start the year 2012 as Detective Emmett Fields, who partners with Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) to help find his missing fiancée in James McTeigue's "The Raven." He recently completed his second turn with director Mat Whitecross in the contemporary film noir "Ashes," alongside Ray Winstone, Jim Sturgess, Lesley Manville and Jodie Whittaker.

The actor is currently in production on "No One Lives," directed by Ryûhei Kitamura, which tells the story of a ruthless gang of killers who are surprised by their victims' resistance.

Evans is slated to play music maestro Antonio Vivaldi opposite Jessica Biel in the period romance "Vivaldi," directed by Patricia Riggen. He has also signed on to play an American in Paris framed for a murder in filmmaker Ross Katz's "The Amateur American."

Prior to his film career, Evans was an established star on London's West End, carving out an enviable stage career starring in West End plays and musicals such as "La Cava," Boy George's "Taboo," "Avenue Q," "Dickens Unplugged," "A Girl Called Dusty" and, at the acclaimed Donmar Warehouse, "Small Change" and "Piaf." His powerful, trained voice and engaging stage presence made him the perfect choice for leading roles such as Chris in "Miss Saigon" and Roger in "Rent."

Evans made his feature film debut in "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," Mat Whitecross' BAFTA-nominated biopic about Ian Dury, a founder of the London punk scene. It was the American blockbuster "Clash of the Titans," however, that put Evans on the map when he portrayed charismatic god Apollo. He was next seen in Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood," playing the Sheriff's top henchman opposite Russell Crowe.

In 2010, Evans returned to Britain where he played a lead role in acclaimed director Stephen Frears' "Tamara Drewe," based on the hugely successful "Guardian" newspaper comic strip and graphic novel of the same name.

Evans currently lives in London.
