In 2006, Sloane made his West End debut in Willy Russell's Blood Brothers. In December 2007, he began playing serial killer Niall Rafferty in Channel 4's Hollyoaks, which earned him three award nominations. In 2010 he appeared in the ITV crime series DCI Banks and later that year he also played Kieran Callaghan in the 9/11 serial medical drama Holby City.

Early life[edit]

In the summer of 2009, Sloane appeared as Troy Whitworth in Jez Butterworth's critically acclaimed play Jerusalem at London's Royal Court Theatre. The play was given a West End transfer in January 2010; after a record-breaking sellout run it was announced that the play would transfer once again, this time to Broadway. He made his Broadway debut in Jerusalem at the Music Box Theatre in New York City on 4 February 2011.

Sloane starred in Joseph Ruben's 2013 thriller film Penthouse North alongside Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan.

On 28 February 2012, it was reported that Sloane had landed the male lead in the ABC/20th drama pilot Gotham, playing Boyo.[2]

On 10 July 2012, Sloane joined the cast of the ABC drama series Revenge as Aiden Mathis, a mysterious man with ties to Emily Thorne's past.[3] It was announced on 23 October 2012 that he had been promoted to series regular.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Sloane married Katy O'Grady, the fourth-place runner-up of the third series of the Sky One programme Project Catwalk. The couple did not accept gifts at the wedding, but instead asked guests to give charitable donations. They had a daughter, Gracie Bluebell Sloane, in 2010.
