Your new movie Morris - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Morris is about an urban myth that writer/director Jason Brown [Jason M.J Brown interview - click here] grew up with. ĎStay away from the train lines or Morris will get youí - it was used to scare them and keep them away and safe. Jason then decided to pull it into a movie with a story behind it. As children, they all used to hang around to train lines and play a game called Ďchickení. One day Ďchickení went wrong and a train hit Morris. Ever since that day Morrisís sprit blames the rest of the gang for his death and the spirit isnít just going to leave things there!

 

My Character ĎMarcusí is an absolute gem I think. Heís got an all round personality and I hope thatís evident throughout the film.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Adam Probets can we find in Marcus?

 

A great question, when I read the role of Marcus, I saw lots of me in him. I also saw it as an opportunity to really bring something different to the character so I got in touch with the director who thankfully allowed that freedom. (Canít say what though because it could be a spoiler!!)

 

How did you get involved with the movie in the first place?

 

Back in 2012 I did I feature film called Five Pillars, and Jason was fortunate enough to have seen that film. He got in touch with me and of course when us actors take a lengthy period of time out on low paid projects, we have to be certain that the risk is worth it and that itís going to be a good production. I knew from the minute I read the script that this was going to be special, and so it has proved.

 

To what extent could you identify with Morris's horror theme?

 

I definitely see the 80s film Stand by Me in this film. Lots of touches of others too. To be honest, Iím not a massive horror film buff (I hide behind the cushions), haha! But being in a horror is completely different and an experience I never wanted to end. Such special moments with a fabulous cast & crew!

 

What can you tell us about Morris's director Jason M.J Brown [Jason M.J Brown interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Jason is a breath of fresh air, I know how much work he has put into this, and he deserves all the plaudits thatíll come his way. Lovely guy with such a creative desire, and I canít wait to hopefully work with him in the future on many more things.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!

 

The set was amazing, skeleton so to speak but nevertheless everyone was great. We filmed one scene where it was absolutely lashing down with rain. The things we did for this movie!! Haha!

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Iíve got a few things lined up: Iím the lead in a web series called Chicken Lane and Iíve got two (maybe three) more feature films to come in the next year or so. I have also just signed with a new agent, heís great so Iím expecting some great things in the near future!

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

Quite bizarre to be honest! When I were at secondary school and we had the choices on the subjects we wanted to drop and take - I was letís say a bit of a Ďrebelí at that age and all I wanted to do was to do subjects that didnít involve much writing, so I took drama as one of those. I figured I could just mess about in class etc. Kids will be kids I guess!! However, I actually started to enjoy the subject and then ended up qualifying in my GCSEís with an A*, so I figured I should continue - and see where it took me!

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Morris?

 

Prior to Morris I have done various bits and bats. My biggest success to date though has to be Last Tango In Halifax starring alongside Derek Jacobi. I still feel so lucky to this very day!

 

How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?

 

I get asked this question a few times to be honest, and itís very easy for me. I am a humble to proud person. Iím proud of myself, the things Iíve done, but I will never get carried away nor forget those that helped me. Itís important to remain grounded and continue to work hard. Be proactive and donít just wait for the phone to ring. It isnít going to! Iím an actor because I love it not because I want fame.

Love Liam Neeson. I love how natural he is, he just keeps things simple but so effective.
