The talented and handsome British actor, picked up the coveted award at a ceremony which took place at the Royal Opera House in London on Tuesday night.
Dan, left the period drama last season, to pursue other ventures, not without controversy, as his character was cruelly killed in a car crash at the end of the Christmas Special, which ruined millions of viewers holidays in England.
He got a lot of backlash for departing in such a way and the show’s distributors in the US weren’t immune to fan anger, since the details of his departure were leaked on social media.
Now, Dan Stevens has moved on with his life, with a stint in Broadway, right after the airing of Season 3 of Downton Abbey. He played alongside Jessica Chastain in The Heiress and had a very successful run with it.
Undergoing a dramatic physical transformation after leaving the period drama, which included significant weight loss (not to say he was fat before, not at all), dying his hair a jet black color, and growing facial hair, Dan seems to have found a more, in-the-middle look.

At the GQ awards he was seen sporting a blondish look, similar to that he wore for Downton, and appeared to have put back some of the weight he lost in preparation for one of his new roles.
He was wearing an elegant Hugo Boss tux, some facial hair, and a little wave in his hair.
Commenting on the award, the ever modest Dan, joked,
“My wife thinks this is hilarious. She reminded me when we first met I wore jeans that we could both fit into.”
