!!Tropes associated with his work:

* ActorInspiredElement:[[invoked]] It was his idea to [[spoiler: have Talisa killed off]] in the Red Wedding (her book counterpart isn't present at the event and simply disappears from the narrative).
* CastingGag:[[invoked]] In both ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and ''{{Film/Cinderella 2015}}'' he plays the next in line to the throne who turns down the good political match to MarryForLove with an ImpoverishedPatrician (the only difference being that Talisa was willingly impoverished).
* CreatorBreakdown:[[invoked]] Admits he sobbed on the plane home after filming the Red Wedding.
* FakeAmerican:[[invoked]] In ''Bastille Day''. He's joked that it was easier for his co-stars to understand him in that accent than his own.
* FakeBrit:[[invoked]] He's Scottish and for some of his most famous roles, he has affected an English accent. Ranging from OopNorth (''Series/GameOfThrones'') to RP (''{{Film/Cinderella 2015}}'').
* PlayingAgainstType:[[invoked]]
** ''Series/BodyguardUK2018'' by his word was something he was attracted to because it was a difference from playing straightforward heroes in fantasy pieces. It also marked the first major role he got to use his natural accent.
** And then there's his turn as a sleazy manipulator in ''{{Film/Rocketman 2019}}''.
* WeightWoe: In 2019 he came out and admitted he struggled with body image issues and anxiety about whenever a role required a ShirtlessScene. He was also FormerlyFat in his teen years until he got a role in a play that required nudity.
