I wasn't, you know, Mr. Popular. I was somewhere in the middle ground. I was quite alternative, the things I liked to do. Skateboarding, at the time. Playing in a band as opposed to playing in the rugby team. You know, that kind of thing.
I'm always drawn towards the darker stuff, because I think it's just a lot more interesting. But it's also good fun doing the comedy, and I think that's why 'Misfits' has been great in that way, as you get a really good balance. I think it's best to try and do everything as an actor, really.
I'm still secretly a bit of a punk. Love The Clash and a bit of the Pistols. I guess as I've got older I've chilled out a bit. But, my teenage angst is still stirring somewhere!
I have no ambitions to be a pop star.
I listen to a lot of reggae.
When I was a teenager, I wanted to be a rock star, not an actor. It means I can do what I want on my own terms.
I don't want to put any pressure on the music; it's my hobby and my release - a thing that I love.
I just want my music to be put out there, not shoved in people's faces. I want to keep it relaxed.
I started off from a very early age listening to music - all the usual cheesy stuff that little kids like.
I was a huge Radiohead fan growing up.
The first CD I had was 'Definitely Maybe' by Oasis, and I had a tape of' 'Parklife' by Blur when I was nine.
There was so much great music around in the '60s, stuff like The Small Faces, but I also love The Jam.
When you write a song, there's no point keeping it to yourself.
Playing live is closer to theatre, although when you're up there on your own, it's quite scary and revealing because you're playing your own songs. It's like a one man show that you've written yourself.
