Luke Evans will now add modelling work to his busy acting schedule.

Luke Evans has signed with IMG Models.

The handsome Welsh actor was catapulted to international fame when he landed the role of Bard in The Hobbit movies, and has gone on to become box office draw.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news the 37-year-old will now also dip his toes into the world of modelling, and has followed in singer Ciara’s footsteps by becoming the next star represented by William Morris Endeavor to sign up to the talent agency’s sister company IMG.

IMG posted the signing to its Twitter page, with fans quick to share their excitement.

As well as his handsome face, Luke has an equally impressive body and admits to loving the gym. However he has calmed down his workout routines over the last few years, after becoming a bit too obsessed at one stage.

"My attitude to working out has changed since I've grown older," he previously admitted to Men's Health magazine. “I got a little bit fanatical a few years ago. I was the most cut I've ever been but I was so into it that I'd look into the mirror and think, 'I'm not quite there.' I had to have a stern word with myself.

"When I did Dracula, as much as I worked my a**e off, I'd never beat myself up if one day my abs weren't quite as defined or whatever. If you train too much, it can rule your life and I don't think that's healthy - for men or women."

Later this year (16) Luke can be seen in hotly anticipated thriller Girl on the Train, based on the bestselling novel of the same name, before transforming into hunky Gaston in the live action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
