Using soft pastel and pastel pencils

This is my second attempt at a figure in pastel, not sure how much he looks like the person!
This person is a famous english actor in both uk and  USA.

I wonder if anyone knows who he is?

Hi Val,
Yes, patrick ?, he is a trained Shakespearian actor , use to be very classical, then took the part in star trek, the x men and one or two other silly scifi films, where he gained fame.

Live in newyork and the cotwolds in uk
Take care
