Tommy Flanagan (born July 3, 1965) is a Scottish actor who has had roles in numerous movies.

Flanagan was born in Glasgow, Scotland, the middle of five children. When Flanagan was six years old, his father abandoned the family. He grew up in a very rough area and admits to getting into some trouble, but says also that his mother Betty always kept him in line. In his early years, Flanagan worked as a painter, decorator, and disc jockey. He received distinctive scars similar in shape to a Glasgow smile on his face after a mugging that almost left him dead. Once recovered, Flanagan saw no way of returning to his old life and, at the urging of his friends and wife, took up acting.

Flanagan worked in the Rain Dog theatre for three years before Mel Gibson gave him his first big break in "Braveheart" (1995). He has subsequently had roles in "Face/Off", "Gladiator", Aliens vs. Predator, "Sin City", "Smokin' Aces", "When a Stranger Calls" (2006), "All About the Benjamins", and the mini-series "Attila".

He now enjoys success as an actor in Sons of Anarchy where he plays an anarchist biker with an attitude.
