If you weren’t an actor what other profession would you have chosen?
“If I wasn’t an actor and could pick a profession I would be a professional football player – left wing for Manchester United but realistically I think I would have gone to Uni and then travelled and I think I would have delayed ‘real work’ for a while and tried to be a scuba diving instructor in Thailand or Bali, Fiji wherever!!”
What techniques/methods do you use to memorise your lines?
“Due to the long hours we are working on this movie, 13 or 15 hours sometimes!!, there is more than enough time to learn lines.
If there is a particularly long section of dialogue or a lot of lines I tend to read it only twice or three times. I have always found that I have done my best work when I don’t quite know my lines. So sometimes I unlearn my lines by throwing in words that are not there and then taking them out in the take.”
