Can you recognise this Hollywood star from his BBC debut on Our Friends in the North 26 years ago? | The Sun

A HOLLYWOOD star looks completely unrecognisable in a throwback picture from his early career in the 90s.

The image of the star, who made his debut on the big screen on the BBC, looks worlds away from him now.

It shows actor Mark Strong, who is also pictured with his co-stars from the series Our Friends in the North.

The snap shows a very young Mark, Daniel Craig, Gina McKee and Christopher Eccleston together.

Our Friends in the North originally ran for nine episodes between January and March 1996.

The show followed four friends from Newcastle upon Tyne over a period of 31 years of their lives.

Since the series aired, Mark, 59, has gone on to star in a number of movies and TV shows.

And has stated he has "no desire to live anywhere else."

As well as his native English, Mark speaks German fluently as well as conversational Italian.

He even dubbed Daniel Craig's voice in German for the 1997 film Obsession.
