In reality, for me every role is completely different.


Besides, most of the books I like involve people I could never play in a million years.


But no, I don’t think I’m particularly drawn to the period roles or the medieval roles.


I think I can lead a pretty anonymous life, yeah.


Because I don’t really think of myself as a hunk, to be honest.


As always, there’s a couple of things in the pipeline – but that pipeline is a strange and ambiguous place.


So to answer your question, I’m not entirely sure how I ended up where I am today, in the sense that nobody in my family is an actor. It just happened by mistake.


If you have a wolf jumping off of a six-foot platform and basically onto your head, that takes a bit of getting used to.


In my experience it’s not essential to get on with the person that you’re acting opposite.


Well, fluffy shirts are, by definition, very comfortable.


I knew I wanted to be an actor when I was growing up, really. So when I decided to go to university instead of drama school, it was with the intention of becoming an actor afterwards.


I think for anybody reading the book they’re going to get an idea in their heads of all those characters, and I think that once that gets fixed, it’s quite hard to shake.
