Ioan Gruffudd (say: Yo-wahn Griffith) is a British actor who rose to fame through two very different roles: As the emponymous character in ''Series/HoratioHornblower'', the [[FilmOfTheBook 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. Has recently landed a role on the CW's new FilmNoir-style show {{Ringer}}.

Oh, and his first language is [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Welsh]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeSLOmEeDgw Just listen.]]

Some of his works include:
* ''{{Titanic}}'' as Officer Harold Lowe, the man captaining the lifeboat who rescues Rose
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' as, well, Horatio Hornblower
* ''Film/KingArthur'' as Lancelot
* ''[[Film/FantasticFour Fantastic Four & Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer]]'' as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic
* ''AmazingGrace'' as William Wilberforce
* ''CenturyCity''
* ''{{Film/Sanctum}}''
* ''{{Ringer}}'' as Andrew Martin
* ''Film/HorribleBosses'' as [[TheCameo 'the Wetwork Man']]

-----
!!Tropes associated with Ioan:
* 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 go, it beats "Horatio Hornblower".
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown hair, brown eyes.
* HotDad
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: For a while, it seemed he would forever be getting [[TypeCasting typecast]] as this.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Has said he's determined never to lose his Welsh name, and has succeeded so far.
