Q. Were you at all apprehensive about this role? Playing
the villain? What appealed to you in the script?
A: I really enjoyed the script, and saw that there was
another side to the character. He wasn’t a moustache twirling
villain, he had some humanity and some charm – as much as
I could get out of it anyway.
It was an attraction also working with Nic, who I’ve always
admired as an actor, and also with Jerry and Jon and Diane. It
was just a fun thing to do, an interesting proposition. I think
it’s turned out great, Jon has done a great job and put
it together really well from the page. It’s very entertaining.
Q. You're enjoying a successful
Hollywood career at the moment, but are there positives and negatives
about working away from home?
A: The fact that you don’t see your family to much,
you miss friends and family and your home. At the same time you’re
doing what you want to do, you’re doing the job you wanted
to do all your life, you enjoy it and you’re getting paid
for it and you’re meeting different people.
At first I was a bit lost in LA, I hadn’t done a great deal
of work when I went over there and it was a little bit like going
cap in hand and I found it quite demoralising.
But over the years I’ve worked with people and built up
a body of work and I really like it over there now. It’s
a really interesting place to be.
