Former Gladiator and bodybuilding champion Mark Rhino Smith was born in London but has a hugely colourful heritage - Jamaican, Cherokee Indian, Ghanaian, White and Chinese. This mix along with his green eyes has given him a very a distinctive look.
He first catapulted onto British screens as Rhino in the massive hit TV series, Gladiators where he reigned for five years. However, nowadays he’s a fully fledged Hollywood movie star with an infectious work hard, dream big philosophy.
In recent years Mark has starred on dozens of TV shows including THE LAST SHIP created by Michele Bay, and also NCIS LA, CRIMINAL MINDS and CRIMINAL starring alongside Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Ryan Reynolds. He can also be seen acting alongside Sylvester Stallone in the movie CREED, and more recently is the voice of officer Officer McHorn (the Rhino!) in Walt Disney’s latest Blockbuster and Oscar winner ZOOTOPIA.
