Early life

Dallas graduated in 1996 at the age of 17 from New Albany High School in New Albany, Indiana,[1] where he studied theater under David Longest. Aged 19 he gained the Sarah Exley Scholarship, that fully funded his degree level studies at the Mountview Conservatoire for the Performing Arts in London, England.

Career

On graduation, he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, and then took parts wth the Royal National Theatre, English National Opera, the New Shakespeare Company and The Young Vic.

Returning to the United States and based in Hollywood, he was cast in 2011 as Fandral in Thor after Irish actor Stuart Townsend withdrew from the role days before filming was to begin.[2] As he was a virtual unknown actor when cast, there was some speculation that Dallas was selected because there simply was not enough time to find a bigger name replacement.[3] To prepare for the role, Dallas viewed Errol Flynn as an inspiration (the character was also created based on Flynn), and watched many of his films. He commented, "I tried to bring out that little bit of Flynn-ness in it. Flynn had a lot of that boyish charm and Fandral's got all that in him."[4]

In 2011, he began starring on the American television series Once Upon a Time as Prince Charming on ABC.[5] Dallas will not be reprising his role in the sequel to Thor due to his commitments in Once Upon a Time. Zachary Levi is replacing him in the film.[6]

Personal life

Dallas met British actress Lara Pulver in 2003 when he came to the UK on a theater training scholarship. They married over Christmas 2007 in a 16th century barn in Devon.[7][8] The couple honeymooned in the Maldives.[9] Dallas confirmed the couple's separation in an interview on the Bob Rivers radio show on 2 December 2011.

Dallas revealed he has been dating Once Upon A Time co-star Ginnifer Goodwin in April 2012.[10]
