Fans are really important for me. And if they take pains to write me, it's the minimum that I answer myself.
I think, as an actor, and particularly if you are playing the lead in something, you have to view yourself as the head of department for the cast. All of the other departments are accountable and have somebody at the helm who is leading them all the time, and I don't think that the actors should be any different.
I don't know why that is, but English politics is just so overly white. It's very much about the class structure.
I'm 5-foot-5, and I'll wear a big parka and put the hood up, and nobody gives me a second glance.
