When did he start acting?
Parker played the role of Cole in BBC show Taboo after striking up a frendship with Hollywood A-lsister Tom Hardy.
The Pair met at a corporate shooting event in 2014.
Parker told Rugby League World of the meeting: “We were in a valley in the middle of nowhere, with no phone signal or anything.
“There was just me and him around and we were sharing stories, telling jokes, just being normal blokes.
“I was telling him a few rude things that had happened in rugby changing rooms and he just asked me if I’d ever done any acting before.
“So I told him, in not such a polite way, to go away.
“But he just turned round and told me that he could get me in a new series that was coming up and that he thought I’d be really good.”
