I've been watching The Mentalist since it started four (?) years ago and would have never guessed the actor playing Rigsby, Owain Yeoman, is not American. I would have gathered that from the name alone. But Hollywood has plenty of people with fancy names, so who would've thought?
He also speaks with a thick Welsh accent, the kind you hear when Sir Anthony Hopkins speaks.
Watch him in this interview with TV Guide:
I also learned that Owain Yeoman is the ex-husband of Lucy Davis, whose character on The Office UK is someone I also liked:
Lucy was, in fact, a guest on The Mentalist last season.
I'm bummed about the divorce news. But I was really so surprised to learn a lot more about Rigsby!
