Life and career
Mark Lewis Jones was born in Rhosllannerchrugog, Wrexham, Wales. He began acting as a teenager with the Clwyd Youth Theatre and trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. He has acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London.
Lewis Jones has made notable appearances in a number of television productions including This Life, Holby City, Spooks, Murphy's Law, Waking the Dead and Torchwood. Perhaps his most significant role for BBC television, however, has been as Detective Inspector Russell Bing in the police drama 55 Degrees North in which he played an outspoken, opinionated and at times humorous police officer, in a complex and intricately crafted series.
He also played Detective Sergeant Ray Lloyd in police drama Murder Prevention. His two most renowned appearances in Hollywood blockbusters were as Hogg the Whaler in Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, and Tecton, a soldier in Troy.
In 2001 he also portrayed Igraine's second husband Uther Pendragon in the American TV miniseries The Mists of Avalon. He played Irfon in S4C's Con Passionate, Josi in Sian James' Calon Gaeth, and Bryan Jones in Y Pris.
In 2009 he was a special guest in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, broadcast on 11 June on BBC Two (Wales only).
On 28 July 2009 he was the workshop leader at the Actors' Cut in Cardiff.
