“I had an opportunity to do a big American thing recently,” he grins. “I don’t want to say what because that wouldn’t be nice for the person now playing the part. It’s really interesting actually. Because I ended up finishing with my management over it. I can totally understand why they wanted me to do it. But to commit six years of your life to one thing? We’re not here all that long. I didn’t respond strongly enough to the material. It had appeal in that it was higher profile and more money. But really. I’d rather spend my time on material I love. I’m not going to do some schlock TV show for money and profile.”
I love him all the more for this brilliant attitude to his work.
