#Quote
1I wanted to know exactly what was going on with the British army at that time, the occupation as it were, the problems that were happening in the colonies and parliaments. It's a fascinating time in history because of the conflict in loyalties. It was friend against friend and neighbor against neighbor. I was drawn to finding out about the structure of the British army and the rules of war. It helped give me a sense of the time and justify some of Hewlett's rather harsh actions.
2On his knowledge of the history of the American Revolution in TURN: Washington's Spies (2014): Well in the U.K., obviously we're not taught much at all about the history of what happened. It's like it's swept under the carpet. I am particularly interested in the formation of the nation, so I was always reading books about the Constitution and who was involved, and the idealism. I've always loved that part of history.
3On his character Major Hewlett: He serves the crown, and in the historical context of that, he's a man that has very rigid rules and regulation running his life. However, I think he's a man that wants to do the right thing. He genuinely wants a resolution and to understand the struggle that's going on in terms of the occupation - it is war. So he's a commander in war, but he's also a man that recognizes the frailty of the human condition. He's not a bad guy; he's somebody who's caught in between two sides.
4I was brought up on Dickens. I remember reading 'Bleak House' but, coming back to it, I didn't remember much about it apart from a few characters.
5It was the exquisite script that we were presented with by Craig [Silverstein] and the team - and the ambition of the script. That doesn't come along that often. The character of Hewlett was incredibly interesting. He's a complex character with a flawed vision, and that's what drew me to him.
6I think it makes a difference when the actors are enjoying it more than anything because we have a real blast on Torchwood (2006).
7I love going on BBC6 and BBC7 and listening to documentaries.
8I'm a film buff and I was keen to find out about the response to Daniel Craig's 007. 'Empire' and 'Hot Dog' had great reviews, and finally he's been accepted as the new Bond. So many millions go into that franchise that if you make a mistake, it's awful.
9I know in Britain with Doctor Who (1963) all the classic actors, and the people who you'd really want to, work on the show. I like that the fact that Torchwood (2006) has actors that want to be involved from the stage. It has raised our game, and I'm just happy for good actors who want to be in sci-fi shows who love the genre.
10I had a great time doing Torchwood (2006) I really did.
11I think there comes a time in every persons life where they just need to go to the darkest, most dismal place.
12I think of myself as a character actor, compared to a straight actor. I know a character actor in England is pretty much the same as in the States; you're actually hired to put on terrible teeth and stuff like that.
13The cliches are all true! My son Max has just turned two, and he's literally turned into this driven young man overnight! The terrible twos are not a myth, but he's such a laugh to be around.
14I always look up to people like Michael Gambon and Tommy Lee Jones, and I hope that as I mature I will become as craggy as them.
15I'm afraid the Doctor Who (2005) door is probably closed because of me being in Torchwood (2006).
16[on his reaction to his character Owen in Torchwood] I've always wanted to be the Weevil King!
17(On why he is an actor): I've learnt something new everyday. When you get to the point that you're not learning, you need to stop. I think and either take a break, or give up and become a plumber or something because it's important to remain motivated and driven.
