Here’s what the 48-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On what to expect in the upcoming season of his show Mr Selfridge: “The backdrop is the First World War and some have to go off to war and we get to see this ripple effect throughout. I think the writers and everyone did a beautiful job of showing that this season. There are new characters and they all intertwine beautifully and seamlessly. I feel like with the amount of characters that we have, I wish we had more episodes because it’s an embarrassment of riches in terms of what they bring. Any one of them at this point could be our main story and it would be fascinating. I think the only problem we have on our show is trying to figure out a way to cut it.”
On his acting idols: “The first person to come to mind would be Javier Bardem. He never lets you down. He’s a complete and utter inspiration. I like Tom Hardy’s balls. I mean not literally, I’ve never seen Tom Hardy’s balls, just for the record. We worked together in Black Hawk Down and he’s a gamer, he’s always up for it, he’s fearless and he’s really fun to watch as well. Mark Rylance – I was lucky enough to see him on stage in Twelfth Night and I hope to see him in Richard III in New York. He’s completely improvisational, totally alive on stage doing Shakespeare.”
On who he would like to work with in the future: “Getting back to Shakespeare, I’d love to mix it up with Idris Elba. I’d love to work with Idris really in anything.”
