Da: if we could go back again for a bit, what would you consider your breakout role? the one that really put you on the map, so to speak... te:
in the u.k. it was definitely “Miranda.” Being on that show changed all of our lives in a way none of us anticipated. But outside of the u.k. my big break, so to speak, was the u.S. show “rush. it was a great part, and i’ll always be sad that it didn’t go longer. But i definitely believe that show paved the way to “Lucifer.” that so much of it is out of your hands when it comes to casting. But i honestly believe that the most you can do as an actor is work as hard as you can on the material that you have to get the jobs. it’s not about networking, it’s about preparation and investment. you get out of it what you put in to it. coming to audition in america made me realize just how intense the level of competition is, so why not do the absolute most you can do?
Most people who know me know that i’m pretty tolerant, and i am generally good at ignoring rude people. however, the election of Donald Trump has changed all that. globally, i don’t think it’s in anyone’s interest to ignore the danger and carelessness that he has brought to the world. he’s a bully, and that is something that i cannot tolerate in life, full stop.
Bad drivers, drivers who text and drive. Which is most people in Los angeles, unfortunately.
Spending time with my children. They make me laugh from a place that no other person has made me laugh from. and also my fiancé, Meaghan. and beer.
