. . . And more formal occasions.
Dan Stevens is perhaps best known for playing Downton Abbey's lovable (but not exactly sexy) leading man Matthew Crawley but has changed quite a bit ever since he left the show in 2012. Since then, Matthew has started to focus on his Hollywood film career — landing roles in The Fifth Estate, The Guest, and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb — and he had a very noticeable transformation, shedding his softer, more posh Downton look to become a scruffy, messy-haired hottie. No wonder he's just signed up to play the Beast in the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Keep reading to see how Dan has transformed over the years, and if you are missing seeing him in period costumes, be sure to check out these other hot guys in historical garb!
