2003: 'Star Trek: Nemesis'
2003 was a busy year for Hardy as he made his first feature film debut in Ridley Scott's war thriller 'Black Hawk Down'. In the same year, Hardy appeared in the films 'Dot the I' and 'Simon: An English Legionnaire'. Yet it was his role in 'Star Trek Nemesis' as Reman Praetor Shinzon, a clone of USS Enterprise Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), that confirmed his status as a rising actor. After the film's completion, Hardy sought help for his addictions, even admitting that it had been the cause of his five-year marriage ending.
