Born in London, Strong first pursued a law degree in Germany before returning home to study English and drama at Royal Holloway, University of London. He then attended the Bristol Old Vic, which led to an eight-year apprenticeship on the English stage.

Dividing his early years between the theater and television, he had his first big break when he won the role of Tosker Cox in the 1994 BBC2 multi-award-winning miniseries Our Friends in the North.

Strong has since become a familiar face on British television, earning a BAFTA TV Award nomination for Best Actor and winning a Broadcast Press Guild Award for his role in the 2004 BBC2 production The Long Firm. In 1993, he appeared as then-Inspector Larry Hall in ITV's Prime Suspect 3 and, 10 years later, reprised the role of Detective Chief Superintendent Larry Hall in Prime Suspect 6: The Last Witness. His many additional television credits include Sharpe's Mission; ITV's presentation of Jane Austen's "Emma”; the BBC films Trust and Fields of Gold; Channel 4's Falling Apart; the PBS miniseries Anna Karenina; Low Winter Sun; and the Pete Travis directed projects The Jury and Henry VIII.

An accomplished stage actor, Strong has appeared in London's West End in such plays as Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman; Patrick Marber's Closer; Kevin Spacey's production of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh; David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow; and the Sam Mendes-directed productions of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, for which he earned an Olivier Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. His stage work also includes The Treatment and The Thickness of Skin at the Royal Court Theatre; the Royal National Theatre productions of Richard III, King Lear, Napoli milionaria, Fuente Ovejuna, Murmuring Judges and Johnny on the Spot; and numerous repertory theater productions.
