Ioan Gruffudd (say: Yo-wahn Griffith) is a British actor who rose to fame through two very different roles: As the hero of ''Series/HoratioHornblower'', the [[TheFilmOfTheBook Series of the Books]] by C. S. Forester, and as Mr. Fantastic in the two ''Film/FantasticFour'' movies. Born in Cardiff in 1973, he started out as an actor in his native Britain but moved to the US a couple of years ago and has since appeared in a number of guest appearances on TV shows as well as in movies. He landed a starring role on the CW's FilmNoir-style show ''Series/{{Ringer}}'' which was unfortunately cancelled after one season. Next, he played the main character in ''{{Series/Forever}}'', which was also, unfortunately, cancelled after one season.

->''"Actors, to a certain extent, never grow up, you see. It's an extension of being out in the back yard with a stick, only you're being paid to do it. It's borderline madness."''

* PlayingAgainstType:[[invoked]] For someone who was so frequently typecast in films and TV shows as [[TheHero an idealized or pure-hearted hero]], Ioan's role in ''Diablo III'' stands out. Not only is it a role in a video game, but he portrays the male Necromancer class, an AntiHero who uses [[DarkIsNotEvil necromancy to battle the forces of Hell]].

* AwesomeDearBoy: During one promotional interview for ''Fantastic Four,'' he mentioned rather enjoying playing a character nicknamed "Mr. Fantastic", and added that, frankly, as far as nicknames he might get stuck with go, it beats "Horatio Hornblower".



* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: When he got famous as Hornblower in the late Nineties and early Naughties, he really seemed to be enjoying interaction with fans on-line, and he was even paying a considerable sum of money to run a web-page where fans could send him greetings and kudos and he would often reply. Fans were also collecting and preserving rare stuff like videos from his child actor days or various interviews. When he got engaged, supposedly many a FanDumb fan-girl forgot that CelebrityCrush should be just for fun. They started sending hateful messages directed at his fiancée. No wonder Mr Gruffudd refused to pay for that.
