Your upcoming movie Brian the Blessed - in a few words, what's it going to be about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

It's going to be a horror film with a twisted love story at the heart of it. My character is very interesting. He is at first glance quite childlike but there are things going on under the surface.

 

What will you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of yourself will we be able to find in Brian? And speaking of, would you consider yourself at all a religious person?

 

It's always important to find as much of yourself in the character as possible. At the end of the day you have to first convince yourself that you are the character and then convince the audience! An actor who I will be taking a lot of inspiration from is Brad Dourif. The character feels very similar to a lot of the roles he used to play in the 70s/80s.

 

What attracted you to the project in the first place, and to what extent can you identify with Brian the Blessed's dark theme?

 

The script and Raine McCormack's passion for the project attracted me to it [Raine McCormack interview - click here]. I love the dark theme. Most of my favourite films are very very dark. 

 

What can you tell us about your director Raine McCormack, and what's your collaboration like? And how did you two first hook up?

 

We met online through the producer. I think we are on the same wavelength for sure. Raine is one of those guys who gets things done. His enthusiasm definitely rubs off on the people round him, which is very important when you are making a low budget feature!

 

As far as I know, Brian the Blessed is still in its fundraising stages. Care to talk about the fundraiser for a bit?

 

There is an IndieGoGo campaign which is going pretty well and I think Raine has other interested parties too. Best ask him about that!

Any future projects beyond Brian the Blessed?

 

I have 4 films that I've been involved in all coming out in either 2014 or 2015. And I am about to start filming a sitcom in Malaysia. Should be interesting!

 

What got you into acting in the first place?

 

I can't even remember now! I was in every school play from aged 8 onwards. It was just something I loved doing.

 

Can you still remember your first time in front of a film or TV camera, and what was that experience like?

 

I was lucky as I was part of a live comedy sketch show and we decided to add some filmed elements to be projected on to a screen on stage so we kind of got to spend a fair bit of time learning as we did it. It was a big help.

 

Though I'm sure you've long gotten tired of talking about it by now ... if I don't at least ask, I'm sure to get tarred and feathered by my readers - so could you talk about The Office for a bit?

 


Well it was a great opportunity and a lot of fun to be involved with. I am constantly amazed by how popular it still is.

 

Any other past movies and TV-shows of yours you'd like to talk about?

 

I prefer to look to the future!

 

How would you describe yourself as an actor?

 

I guess I kind of have a naturalistic style.

 

Actors (or indeed actresses) who inspire you?

 

So so many! Since I mentioned Brad Dourif earlier I will name some great character actors - Robert Duvall, Bruce Campbell, Elias Koteas, Jefrey Combs, Sissy Spacek, Michael Rooker, Steve Buscemi, Catherine Keener.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Requiem For a Dream, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Kill List, Reservoir Dogs, Jesus of Montreal and loads more.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

I have a real issue with all these 'found footage' films. I think 95% of them are utter garbage and I think it's lazy filmmaking. I totally lay the blame for it at the feet of The Blair Witch Project, which I thought was terrible. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!

Anything else you are dying to mention and I've merely forgotten to ask?

 

No you have been very thorough. Well done!

 

Thanks for the interview!
