Tom Hopper stars in "Black Sails" on Starz as Billy Bones.

British actor Tom Hopper is carving a place for himself as a television and film actor. He is best known for playing the recurring role of Sir Percival in Syfy's fantasy series "Merlin." On UK television, Hopper has also appeared in such popular shows as "Doctor Who," "Casualty," "Kingdom" and "Doctors."

On the big screen, he most recently played Marcus in the teen horror film "Tormented," which follows a student who commits suicide after being bullied at school — only to return to haunt his persecutors.

Hopper first got into acting at school where encouragement from his drama teachers resulted in a couple of stints at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He says, "I think I found that when I was doing a show on a regular basis and just acting constantly that was when I was at my happiest."

He went on to study acting at Rose Bruford College, where his stage credits included "The Tempest," "The Way of the World," "Colliers Friday Night" and "Festen."

Hopper currently lives in London, England.
