How’s film­ing in Pee­bles?

It’s a very pic­turesque, very quaint town in the Scot­tish Bor­ders that’s quite a tourist hot spot if you’re over 70. It was just gor­geous to wake up to every morn­ing – you’d look out your win­dow at rolling hills and a lovely river run­ning through.

How was it film­ing the storm scene?

For the en­tire shoot that night, eight hours or so, we were just wet the whole time. It was Novem­ber, 2am, ridicu­lously cold. It served the scene re­ally well. It’s one of the very rare times when I felt I earned the money.

What do you make of your char­ac­ter?

He was in­ter­est­ing to play in that he’s sort of a per­fect storm of a lot of things that have hap­pened to him from his ado­les­cence on­wards. He was used as an emo­tional crutch by his mother and felt a lot of re­spon­si­bil­ity thrust on him at a young age. He had to deal with her al­co­holism as well. He’s a man who al­ready car­ried a lot of emo­tional bag­gage.

Did you en­joy act­ing along­side Juliet Steven­son?

It was great. When I found out that Juliet was in it, I was both ec­static and ter­ri­fied be­cause you know there’s go­ing to be a high bar set. I learnt a lot from her – and she’s just a laugh.
