I was the only actor in my family. I wasn’t given a lot of advice; I had to work it out.
It’s brilliant having loads of girls running after you. It’s also a shock when you realise just how much attention you’re getting. Eventually, you start to think, ‘I’d rather settle down and be normal.’
I really, really loved ‘Preacher.’ I can’t wait to go back. It’s one of the best times I’ve had filming.
I remember being with my mum eating marmalade on toast watching ‘Inspector Gadget,’ ‘Sharky and George,’ ‘The Pink Panther,’ and ‘Thundercats,’ stuff like that. Those were the days – no idea how brutal the world is.
It’s a very working-class thing, to get where you want and then not feel worthy.
My family were really poor.
On ‘This Is England,’ everyone is mates. The nice thing is that when you watch us, you’re watching a gang. They’re young, and they’re adventurous. There’s a real closeness there.
I remember going to the audition for ‘Corrie.’ I wasn’t an actor – what they’re often looking for in these rooms is a character, not what’s on the page. They want to see what you are going to bring. So somehow, I got the job on ‘Corrie.’ For the first time in a while, someone really believed in me.
I might live in the woods, but I am a lazy actor.

It’s a relentless regime with ‘Misfits.’ I’m actually a little bit nervous of it, because I know it’s going to be so tough to film, but we have a good crack at it.
‘This Is England 2015.’ That would be ace. We could have prosthetics to make us look really old.
I know how it feels to be the newbie.
I don’t want to be a sexy vampire.
I’m an extraordinarily anxious person. I’m a typical actor: narcissistic and paranoid and all them things.
I have no intention of making vampires cool. Absolutely not. They’re not cool.

I love New York: it reminds me a bit of London.
I was never a comic-book fan, but I loved cartoons. I don’t enjoy reading: for me, it’s hard work.

I don’t do social media.
I’ve been on the telly for a long while. I’ve never saved any money or anything. I’m not one of those people.
I’ve got an awful memory, and I can’t read or write, but you can read me a script once or twice, and I’ve got it.
