Most recently Callis appeared in the film "Re-Uniting the Rubins" co-starring Rhona Mitra and Timothy Spall, played Merlin in the telefilm "Merlin and the Book of Beasts," guest starred on CBS's "Numb3rs" and ABC's "Flash Forward."

He graduated from LAMDA in 1996 and has since appeared in various West End stage productions, as well as in film and on TV and radio.

Callis made his West End debut in "Old Wicked Songs" alongside Bob Hoskins in 1996, earning the London Critics Circle's Jack Tinker Award for Most Promising Newcomer. He appeared at the Almeida Theatre in George Bernard Shaw's "The Doctor's Dilemma" in 1998, and at the Soho Theatre in London last year in Peter Ackerman's "Things You Shouldn't Say Past Midnight." He broke into television in 1996 with a guest role on the British series "Murder Most Horrid" and with a recurring role in the ensemble of the long-running U.K. drama "Soldier Soldier."

Callis went on to a number of telefilms and miniseries, including "The Scarlet Pimpernel" (1999) and "Jason and the Argonauts" (2000). He played Bridget's pal Tom in the hit movie "Bridget Jones's Diary" (2001) and its sequel "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" (2004).
