Personal Quotes (1)

[on The Suspicions of Mr Whicher: The Murder in Angel Lane (2013)] I had already agreed to do this before I'd even read the script, because Paddy [Paddy Considine] was in it. It was weird acting with him because, on Tyrannosaur (2011), he was the best director in the world. On this, when the director gave me notes, I'd keep checking Paddy's eyes to see if everything was all right, and he'd have to tell me, "I'm not the director!"
