Daniel Mays is a familiar face thanks to roles in TV series such as Ashes To Ashes and the Bafta-nominated British movie Made In Dagenham with Andrea Riseborough, Bob Hoskins and Geraldine James.

He also has a role in Steven Spielberg's upcoming The Adventures of Tintin, released in October.

Away from showbusiness, he supports Leyton Orient Fc and has a young son called Mylo.

We will next see him on screen as Alex, the father of George, a frightened little boy at the centre of Doctor Who episode Night Terrors, which airs on Saturday, September 3 at 7pm. Here's what he had to say...(warning: there are some spoilers about the episode in Daniel's answers)

Brian Kirk In Talks To Direct Thor 2

4 August 2011 8:48 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Marvel is looking to TV for a director on Thor 2.Variety reports that Brian Kirk is currently in talks to direct the sequel to this summer's hit movie, Marvel no doubt drawn in by his work on both Boardwalk Empire and Game Of Thrones. And given that Kirk's three episodes of Game Of Thrones include two of my favorites - those being Lord Snow and Cripples, Bastards And Broken Things - I have no issue with that at all. Looking back farther in his filmography and seeing episodes of Dexter, Idris Elba starring UK hit Luther, The Tudors, The Riches and about half of League Of Gentlemen alumni project Funland certainly doesn't hurt, either.This strikes me as an uncommonly savvy move by Marvel.
