Mark Strong's Quotes

  • On Stardust (2007) director Matthew Vaughn ... From "Good Omens: The Making of Stardust" on Stardust DVD: What I love about Matthew is his taste. He won't look at the monitor and let something pass unless he thinks it's right and, as an actor, that's what you want from a director. You want them to be your mate behind the camera.
  • On his character Prince Septimus in Stardust (2007) ... From "Good Omens: The Making of Stardust" on Stardust DVD ... (Contains spoiler for movie): I was able to do pretty much most of my fighting scenes in this movie. The difficulty obviously is, it's one thing being able to do fighting, but it's another thing doing it with your eyes closed while you're slumped over and you can't see your opponent.(when he was used as a Zombie by the Witch Lamia): In a film, the more effort you put in, the more fantastic it looks.
  • [on Green Lantern (2011)]: I had to imbue in Sinestro an evil feeling, so the audience could take that journey into what might be in store for them. That's why Sinestro had to have a presence and a potential to be a badass.
  • I'm not convinced that this business runs on talent, otherwise why would there be so much crap on the box?
  • (On his character in Our Friends in the North (1996)) There's a kind of simpleness about him but that doesn't mean he's stupid," Strong says fondly, "and a kind of hardness but that doesn't mean he's not vulnerable. He's just someone who's working his bollocks off to do something and get somewhere despite all the limitations holding him in."

The Actor and Producer Mark Strong

Have you ever caught yourself in the middle of a movie and asked, โ€œWho is that incredible actor?โ€ Chances are, if youโ€™ve been to the cinema in the last 20 years, you may have found yourself asking that very question about Mark Strong. He is a British actor and producer who has graced our screens with more than one hundred acting credits to his name. From his compelling performances to his deep, warm baritone voice, Mark has become a household name as he continues to excel in his industry, and all with a net worth of $9 million. Read on to discover more about Markโ€™s early life, career, and accomplishments.

Early Life

Mark was born Marco Giuseppe Salussolia on August 5, 1963, in London, England. He comes from a mixed heritage, with his mother Waltraud being Austrian, and his father Giuseppe being Italian. His parentsโ€™ union did not last long, so Waltraud raised Mark by herself throughout most of his childhood while juggling her job as an au pair to make ends meet.

Mark grew up observing and adapting to a changing world around him. As a child, he struggled to fit in with his classmates because of his surname, which others found hard to pronounce. His mother legally changed his name to help him fit in better.

Mark attended Wymondham College in Norfolk, where he found an escape in punk music and soon became part of the punk bands Private Party and The Electric Hoax โ€“ which lit a spark for performance. After graduation, he went to Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich intending to study German law. However, he realized that he wanted to pursue a different path in life. This self-discovery led him to study drama and English at the Royal Holloway, University of London, before he would eventually land a role in Hollywood.


Mark began his acting career in 1989 as a guest star on shows such as โ€˜EastEnders,โ€™ โ€˜After Henry,โ€™ and โ€˜Home James!,โ€™ followed by his first television movie, โ€˜One Against the Wind.โ€™ He quickly found himself immersed in the industry, grabbing every chance to perform. In 1993, he portrayed Inspector Larry Hall in two episodes of โ€˜Prime Supect 3,โ€™ a role he would come back to in Prime Suspect 6: The Last Witness, which aired in 2003. He then lent his talented skills to films like Sunshine, Elephant Juice, and Emma.

Time and experience proved to be excellent teachers for Mark. The late 90s brought with it consecutive breakthrough roles as Terry โ€˜Toskerโ€™ Cox on the BBC2 series โ€˜Our Friends in the Northโ€™ and Stiva Oblonsky in the 200 mini-series โ€˜Anna Karenina.โ€™ Furthermore, he appeared in many notable films like โ€˜Superstition,โ€™ โ€˜To End All Wars,โ€™ and โ€˜Hotel.โ€™

Over the years, Mark continued to excel as an actor and grow his (already shiny) reputation. He starred in โ€˜Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Dayโ€™ and was then chosen to debut with the uplifting spoof film adaptation of โ€˜Flashbacks of a Fool.โ€™ In 2007, he took the stage as Prince Septimus for โ€˜Stardustโ€™ and has shown no signs of slowing down since then starring in movies like โ€˜The Imitation Gameโ€™ (2014), โ€˜Shazam!โ€™ (2019), and most recently โ€˜Cruellaโ€™ (2021).

Markโ€™s charisma also lent itself well to playing villainous roles, most notably in the 2009 superhero movie โ€˜Kick-Ass,โ€™ where he portrayed the crime boss Frank Dโ€™Amico, and in the same year, he starred alongside Robert Downey Jr. in โ€˜Sherlock Holmes,โ€™ playing Lord Henry Blackwood.

Personal Life

Mark has been married to Liza Marshall, a television producer, since 200. The couple met when Mark was appearing in the 1996 BBC Two series โ€˜Our Friends in the North,โ€™ where Liza happened to be working. Liza was an established television executive who at one time worked for Jon Sanders and Stephen Poliakoff, among others. Together they have two children and have been regarded as one of Hollywoodโ€™s most private couples.

Markโ€™s contribution to the industry had not gone unnoticed. He has been nominated for several awards throughout his career, receiving endearing positivities along with those nominations.

Mark received his most notable recognition when he won the Theatre World Award for Exceptional Performance in 2016 and later won the Olivier Award for Best Actor for a London production the same year. The production was of the play โ€˜A View from the Bridgeโ€™ in which he portrayed Eddie. Another remarkable nomination came in 2011, where he bagged a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Cast from the cast of โ€˜The Kingโ€™s Speech.โ€™
