Mark Ryan stars in "Black Sails" on Starz as Gates, Captain Flint's Quartermaster and most senior member of his crew.

Born in Yorkshire, England, actor Mark Ryan was expelled from school at the age of 15 for making two shilling pieces in the metal workroom. Having no trade, he shunned a career in mining and began working as a cabaret singer, headlining at such venues as Batley Variety Club, the Two Bees in Scarborough and the Macumbi Room, Kitwe, Zambia. Soon thereafter, he landed the role of Magaldi in Hal Prince's premiere of the musical "Evita," before going on to nab the role of Che.

Mark was then cast as Edmund the Archer in the cult TV show "Robin of Sherwood" but was told on the first day of filming that the character had been renamed Nasir the Saracen, and he was to be killed off in the second episode. An unfortunate kidnapping, however, proved decisive, and he was hired for three consecutive years. He still proudly holds the UK record for killing the most people in one hour of children's daytime television.

Mark then returned to the stage in "Elmer Gantry," "Guys & Dolls" and "The Mystery of Edwin Drood." He also recorded a duet with Tom Jones for the album "Matador."

Guest-starring roles on U.S. and U.K. television series include "Community," "Alias," "JAG," "Frasier," "The Bill," "Casualty," "Harry, "Peak Practice" and "Crossbow." Feature film credits include "The Prestige," starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, "Perfect Opposite," alongside Martin Henderson and Piper Perabo, "Charlie's Angels," starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, "First Knight," opposite Sean Connery and Richard Gere, and "The Phantom of the Opera" with Robert Englund.

Mark also toured the US with Eric Idle in "Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python" and performed at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl.
