Ioan Gruffudd - pronounced "Yo-an Griffith" (born 6 October 1973 in Llwydcoed, near Aberdare, South Wales) is a Welsh actor.
Having trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he started off in Welsh language film productions, then came to international attention as Fifth Officer Harold Lowe in the film Titanic (1997), and as Lt John Beales in Black Hawk Down (2001).
He is also known in the UK for playing the title role in Horatio Hornblower (1998–2003). In June 2012, he filmed Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box throughout the south-west of England, playing the role of "Charles Mundi"; the film was released in 2014.
Other film roles include Lancelot in King Arthur (2004), Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards) in Fantastic Four (2005) and the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), and British anti-slavery abolitionist William Wilberforce in Amazing Grace (2006). He played Tony Blair in W. (2008). On television he played Andrew Martin in Ringer.
Starting in 2014, he plays Dr. Henry Morgan in Forever.
Gruffudd lives with his wife, actress Alice Evans, in Los Angeles, California. The couple met during the production of 102 Dalmatians, and married on 14 September 2007 in Mexico. One of Gruffudd's best men and speechmakers at the wedding was fellow Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, his long-time friend and former flatmate of eight years.
Both are patrons of Trust PA, a UK spinal injuries charity. On 20 April 2009, Gruffudd and Alice announced they were expecting their first child together. The couple has two daughters.
Gruffudd enjoys being in Los Angeles because "it's the easiest place in the world to drive, and it's a real pleasure to do that in my black Jag XK8. I've gone all out."
