The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

TURN­ING to The Men­tal­ist star Simon Baker (pic­tured), Cas­tle’s Nathan Fil­lion and El­e­men­tary lead Jonny Lee Miller for ad­vice on be­ing a US TV lead, Gruf­fudd said he’s had to learn to have his own back.

With his wife, ac­tor Alice Evans, and their two young daugh­ters living back in Los An­ge­les while he works 16-hour days in New York, the Welsh star said it was Baker who told him to find bal­ance.

“He said, ‘Just re­mem­ber that you are the lead and with­out you there is no show, so pro­tect your­self as much as you can and look af­ter your­self’, es­sen­tially.

“What’s lovely is this is all hap­pen­ing to me as a 40-year-old who has had ex­pe­ri­ence and suc­cess so that’s not weigh­ing heav­ily on me.

“I’m en­joy­ing the fact that I’m work­ing and so grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity that’s come around again in my ca­reer.”
