British actor Mark Strong is especially known for his villainous performances such as Prince Septimus in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' or Lord Blackwood in GuyRitchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' though he has been playing the KnightInShiningArmor, a morally gray hitman, and pretty much everything in between as well. See (incomplete) list below.

If GuyRitchie is working on a new project, it is safe to say that he at least considers his friend for a part in it.

!!Tropes associated with him / his work provides examples of:

* [[AmbiguouslyBrown Ambiguously Tanned]]: This Austro-Italian Englishman has portrayed Jordanian and Lebanese men.
* BadAssBaritone: All he needs is an echo-y place to sound (even more) intimidating.
* BaldOfAwesome: Mark Strong in real life. He even said in a few interviews that losing his hair helped transition him from one-note lovers into the juicier villainous roles.
* BerserkButton: You really don't want to find out how [[Film/{{Stardust}} Septimus]] reacts to treason ... or being mocked. You wouldn't want to try it on [[{{Rocknrolla}} Archy]], either. And don't lie to [[BodyOfLies Hani]] - might cost you a finger. Or two.
* BilingualBonus: Mark Strong speaks fluently German due to his Austrian mother. You can hear an example [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0eCUeXykxE here]] at 2:07.
** Evidently some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE4cvkL35us Italian]] too
* CuteKitten: In Low Winter Sun (2006), when Frank Agnew goes into Geddes apartment, a cat is randomly there for no other reason than to get a shot of Mark Strong holding a cat.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: He plays many villains, but he's super nice and humble in real life.
* SharpDressedMan: Mark Strong at pretty much any film premiere he attends.
* SmokingIsCool: A few of his characters fall under here, but particular notice goes to Dr. Neil Barnard from Endgame (2009), who snaps the filters off his cigarettes before lighting up.
* StarMakingRole: Septimus in ''{{Stardust}}'', the role that kick-started his career as a villain actor.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* WhatBeautifulEyes: There are many, ''many'' shots in Low Winter Sun (2006) of Frank just staring intently at something. They are especially noticeable [[http://pics.livejournal.com/serpentsign/pic/000xchpa here]], [[http://pics.livejournal.com/serpentsign/pic/000sybkb here]], and [[http://pics.livejournal.com/serpentsign/pic/000xeyff here]].
