I don’t think actors need to go on pedestals. I don’t buy it.
Light, trivial comedy does not appeal – it is not something I go to see.
I’d like to act in a film without special effects.
There’s a very strong force in Tolkien’s characters.
Give me a character that has an heroic quality, and I’ll go there.
I have a bit of pride, which is always my downfall.
I am just not a water baby. I can swim, but I just don’t.
I’m probably not very good at rom-com, being funny on demand; I’ll leave that to the comedians.
I kind of got lost down a road of TV and film, so it’s great to come back to theatre.
