Early life

Evans' family is from Northern Ireland. Evans was born and raised in Liverpool, where his father worked as a taxi driver and his mother was employed as a hospital health care worker. He has a brother who is eleven months older than he. Evans gained a scholarship to St. Edward's College, which he attended from 1991 to 1998, and where he began acting in school productions.

He completed a course with the National Youth Theatre before moving to London at the age of 17-18 to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Career

His first major role was that of gay French teacher John Paul Keating in the Channel 4 comedy-drama Teachers during its second series in 2002.

Additional screen credits include Being Julia, The Situation, Cashback, Gone, Boy A, Telstar: The Joe Meek Story, Princess Kaiulani and Clive Barker's horror, Dread.

On television, Evans was featured in the 2002 docudrama The Project and was seen as the Earl of Southampton in the miniseries The Virgin Queen, which premiered in November 2005 on Masterpiece Theatre on PBS in the US before airing on the BBC in January 2006. His stage work includes a UK tour of the award-winning play Blue/Orange by Joe Penhall. Recent television appearances include Murder City, BBC's Ashes to Ashes, Gentley's Last Stand and four-part drama The Take from the novel by Martina Cole on Sky1. Evans also starred in Sparkle alongside Bob Hoskins and Stockard Channing (2007). He also portrayed Kurt Cobain in the Roy Smiles play Kurt and Sid, at the Trafalgar Studios, opposite Danny Dyer as Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious.
