I've seen him as the villain in 2 movies, and I think he just kills it as such. Do I want him to be typecast for it? No of course not, not that they won't be a great performance, but then it would dilute his acting and My (if not our) love for him as one.


You can keep track of Luke's Filmography here

Son of the Dragon Armor

Dracula Untold

Dracula Untold

The movie was originally titled Dracula Year Zero and had Sam Worthington attached to star.

In this version of Dracula, Luke plays the loving husband and father Vlad Tepes. Unlike what we know of Dracula as a blood thirsty vampire and that Vlad the Impaler supposedly drank the blood of his enemies, he is a beloved figure in his Romania.

When the Turkish Sultan's men come to pick up tribute (on Easter no less) they request 1000 boys plus Vlad's son as well to be brought up as Vlad did by the sultan's side. When it comes time his brave son is supposed to go, Vlad tells him to run and takes out the Sultan's men.

With a legend of a Vampire 'living' in Broken Tooth mountain, Vlad hightails it there and climbs in hopes the Vampire can turn him and give him the powers to beat the Turkish army. He must do so within three days, when his powers run out as long as he doesn't drink human blood.

When I originally saw the movie, I thought I was going to be let down by how Dracula was portrayed, but I surprisingly was not. I was quite happy with the movie and Luke Evans' portrayal and the "son of the Dragon' armor he wore.... I wish I could own it! I LOVED the armor they came up with.

I also liked the legend of the vampire in the movie as well. You can read my full review here

The Hobbit

The Hobbit trilogy

Plays Bard the Bowman who once failed to kill Smaug the dragon but left a vulnerable spot where a scale is missing. He has a son and a daughter (or was it 2). He should be the leader of his fellow men but instead there's in incompetent asinine idiot and his minion instead.


and Luke has described him as "a bit of a rouge; a robin hood type"

      Hi Bev... Thanks but Some of what I wrote where he was from was a quote from a magazine.

      I do fact check but being as I am always interrupted by family when I am writing, don't always remember where I left off or what I was checking on.

      Pontypool is in S. Wales!??!?! thought it was just a movie

      Thank you for the heads up. One I am able to get to updating the page I will do the corrections

      Sorry, I have to put you right on a couple of things. It's Pontypool, and South Wales... and Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, it certainly isn't a village or a mining town. Always a good idea to fact-check :)
