Tobias Menzies is a stage, television and film actor. He is best known for his role as Brutus in HBO's Rome, Edmure Tully in HBO's Game of Thrones, and the dual roles of Frank and Jonathan "Black Jack" Randall in STARZ's Outlander, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination.
Actor James Purefoy is a remarkable stage and screen presence. From jousting Heath Ledger in 2001’s pulpy A Knight’s Tale to manipulating a cult of serial killers in Fox’s The Following, James has appeared in a wider range of film, television and theatre productions than the lion’s share of his contemporaries.
I was delighted to teach a Portrait Masterclass at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The third time the gallery has invited me to work with them, and it is a real treat to use the Collection as inspiration. I had the pleasure of working with 12 delegates. No stranger to the gallery I’m always popping my head through the door, to gorge upon the feast of art and intrigue. Over the years seven of my portraits have been acquired by the Gallery.
