did you get hooked up with the project in the first place?
contacted my agent and offered me the role. I read the script and liked it
so I took the part.
What can you tell us
about your collaboration with Andrew Barclay [Andrew
Barclay interview - click here] and the rest of the Eromeda
Entertainment crew so far?
I’ve not really
collaborated with them but we’ve worked on the character and I've enjoyed
having input into it all.
How much of yourself do
you see in Terry, the teenage gangleader, and what will you draw upon to
bring your character to life?
I grew up and live in
so those type of people I've seen all my life - so it wasn’t too hard to
put that into a character like ‘Terry’.

I’ve had a couple of
film offers and other stuff happening but can’t really say much more at
got you into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training
on the subject?
I didn’t go to acting school and never
took acting lessons before I was cast in Shameless - they
visited my school and I went for it. I didn’t think I'd get it so I
wasn’t really nervous. After that I did do drama at Laine Acting
Agency and the classes were toward a showcase I took part in.
You of course have to talk about your
involvement in Shameless for a bit, and how did you get involved in
that series in the first place?
As I mentioned they
came to audition at my school and that’s how I got to be in Shameless.
Any other film and TV
(and stage?) work of yours you'd like to talk about?
A New York
Story and Shameless I can’t really go into what’s coming up but im
looking forward to it all.
How would you describe yourself as an actor, and
some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?
I'm still learning and
still growing as an actor and I'd like to try all kinds of different roles.
I don’t think I have a ‘technique’ yet.
(and indeed actresses) who inspire you?
I really like Tom
Hardy and Jason Statham.
like Scarface with Al Pacino and I also love the Rush Hour films. I really
also like Rise Of The Foot Soldier too.
Feeling lucky ?
