I don't see a lot of films. I'm quite choosy, but there's certain films that stick out.
I love my accent, I thought it was useful in Gone In 60 Seconds because the standard villain is upper class or Cockney. My Northern accent would be an odd clash opposite Nic Cage.

We all need a firm sense of identity.
I care more about telly because it made me an actor and there's a much more immediate response to TV. You can address the political or cultural fabric of your country.
I only ever worked on interiors, and an interior is an interior. I don't know what they did about exteriors.
