Colin is an Irish actor who originally trained to be a dancer and even auditioned to become a member of Boyzone. Luckily for him, the dancing thing didn't work out, and he took to the silver screen instead. Since then, he has appeared in several Hollywood blockbusters, including Daredevil, Miami Vice, Minority Report, Phone Booth, The Recruit and In Bruges. However, his career has not avoided scandal - the actor's problems with recreational drugs and painkillers were heavily reported in 2005 before he entered rehab later the same year. The star has two children - James Farrell, from his former marriage to actress Amelia Warner (July 2001 - November 2001), and Henry Farrell, from his relationship with co-star Alicja Bachleda-Curu (Sept 2009 - Oct 2010). He had apparently grown close to Elizabeth Taylor prior to her death in 2011, and recited two poems at her funeral.
