Our work, particularly in film and television, has become more and more last minute, so technology is vital. It has made us much more flexible. I’ve reduced my paper output massively by reading scripts on iPad.
Researching roles, especially historical ones, is a lot easier online. I’ve just done Lucan on ITV, so spent a lot of time surfing the web, reading up on my character, painter Dominick Elwes. Auditioning over Skype is becoming a lot more common too. My latest job was Rogue, an American cop drama with T’handie Newton’, and I had to do a Skype meeting with the showrunner for that.
On his favorite computer game: I got addicted to Tiger Woods Golf. I’d be up till 3am every night and it ruined my life, so I had to go cold turkey and give them up. But I do have a chess app and I play against two or three friends. I get obsessed with that too. My girlfriend goes mental if she hears the noise of me moving a piece. I put my phone on silent so she doesn’t know what I’m up to. It’s my dirty secret.
