Christopher Eccleston, Major Henry West
20th Century Fox/BBC
Then: The British star of ‘Shallow Grave’ and ‘Gone in Sixty Seconds’ lent his talents to ’28 Days Later’ as Major Henry West, commander of the not-so-friendly military unit that takes our protagonists hostage. Along with co-star Cillian Murphy and screenwriter Alex Garland, Eccleston co-wrote the scene in which he lays out his plans for Hannah and Selena.
Now: In 2005, Eccleston filled the legendary shoes of ‘Doctor Who‘ for the first season of the re-vamped BBC series. He also starred in ‘Heroes’ and ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,’ and you can catch him next as the evil Malekith in ‘Thor: The Dark World.’
