Personal Quote:

[on Babylon (2014)] It felt like we were almost making a documentary. There's a lot of ultra realistic camera-work. I think the tone is underscored by comic elements - some of the characters are very funny - but it's true to life because as dramatic as the situations are, comedy seeps out thanks to the relationships between all the officers. But we all played it for real, not for laughs. See more »

Trivia:

In March 2010, the University of Ulster appointed James Nesbitt as its first ever Northern Ireland-born Chancellor. He succeeded former London Lord Mayor Sir Richard Nichols in the role. See more »
