Born in Dylan Thomas’s home town of Swansea, Owen attributes his initial love of acting to the poet saying “my interest in being an actor started with the school production of Under Milk Wood”.

Now one of Wales’s best loved and known actors, Owen’s career has encompassed every medium, from his Tony award winning performance as Torvald Helmer in A Dolls House, Hotspur, Edmund and Mark Antony for the RSC, the title role in Ivanov for the National Theatre, his most recent appearance in the West End in Passion Play, through to a host of leading film and television appearances.

He has found new audiences and worldwide fame through his portrayal of Alliser Thorne in the cult TV series Game of Thrones.

We are delighted that Owen is taking time away from the Dylan Thomas in Fitzrovia event to join us for a very special reading of the great poets works with Griff Rhys Jones.
