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

 

It's based off an old urban legend from the film's director Jason Brown's [Jason M.J Brown interview - click here] childhood, warning children to stay away from the train lines or else 'Morris'll get you'. Jay's adapted it to tell the story of a group of lifelong friends whom tragedy struck in their youths, and the revenge of an old friend (Morris) who blames them for his death - essentially the origin of the legend. My character's (Nathan) son went missing some years beforehand while on a school trip, but he hasn't to this day given up hope of finding him.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Darren Randall can we find in Nathan?

 

I drew a lot of inspiration from a character I once played on stage, The Landlord from Jim Cartwright's Two, a character whose son was lost tragically in a car accident years before. Unable to face the pain he retreated away from it, never dealing with the hurt and becoming somewhat cold, which I thought would be an interesting element to bring to Nathan.

 

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

 

I'd worked with Jay on his last feature, Dark Vale, so when he approached me with the character of Nathan and the story for Morris, it was an easy decision to make to be a part of his new movie.

 

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

 

Jay's approach to directing and writing Morris, one which relies on suspenseful horror rather than gore and constant jump scares, really spoke to me. It's that kind if horror that really gets me, the type that more gets under your skin and lulls you into a false sense of security.

 

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?

 

Jay's a good friend of mine, and collaborating with him on both Dark Vale and Morris were some of the highlights of both shoots. He knows how to get the shots he wants by trusting his actors to bring the performance, while guiding the scene to meet his vision for the piece.

 

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

 

I have some truly brilliant and fond memories of working with the cast and Jay, always very fun but professional as well! One in particular where myself, Adam [Adam Probets interview - click here] and Katie [Katie Richmond-Ward interview - click here] were out in light clothes in the middle of a rain storm! Took a while to dry out from that one!

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I believe Jay's already got his next project in the works, so watch out for more info on that one as it comes. Also I have my own YouTube channel which I'm working on as regularly as I can.
