Why did you get in­volved? I got the au­di­tion when I was in Amer­ica and read the scripts and it just blew my mind. Yes it is a para­nor­mal show but one that has kind of some­thing in it for ab­so­lute­ly­olutely ev­ery­one. I couldn’t putt th the scripts down and I’ve never had that hap­pen with any­thing I’ve done.

How do you deal with liv­ing in LA? Me and my part­ner go camp­ing all the time and it’s so beau­ti­ful, Cal­i­for­nia it­self. As long as I can keep that in there, I kind of feel like I can cope there. Oth­er­wise it’s a pretty full-on city. It’s amaz­ing, but I need the na­ture al­ways, any­where I am.

How did you find work­ing on such a huge block­buster as Gods of Egypt? Mega bud­get, yes. I’ve done films for 50-60 mil­lion but this was the first 150 mil­lion one I’ve ever done. It was pretty big and a big ad­ven­ture for me. Un­for­tu­nately I’m not al­lowed to say any­thing about it. I can tell you it was awe­some and it was mas­sive and ev­ery­thing was very green. Apart from us char­ac­ters, most of it was green screen so it was re­ally in­ter­est­ing. I kind of felt like I was do­ing theatre.

Did you get to work with Ger­ard But­ler? Yes. I hung out with Ger­ard heaps. He’s a funny guy. He’s hi­lar­i­ous. And Niko­laj Coster-Wal­dau was just beau­ti­ful, Ge­of­frey Rush …. there’s some great peo­ple work­ing on there and it was just re­ally good to see other peo­ple’s ap­proach to their craft, such re­ally tal­ented peo­ple. So that was cool. Will you re­turn for sea­son two of Glitch, if there is one? Oh ab­so­lutely. It is so in­trigu­ing what hap­pens a at the end that I’ll d def­i­nitely have to come ba back. I love this char­ac­ter. I wan want to know what hap­pens ac­tu­ally ac­tu­ally!
