Love for adam?
James Nesbitt tells us what’s new as Cold Feet returns
Q What can you tell us about the new series? A It’s good this year and we’re excited. It took a wee bit of time for the reboot to settle in and to find out exactly where those characters were after all those years. Now it feels like old Cold Feet to me – it’s found its ‘feet’ again. It has the right mixture and it’s just been such a treat. Q Will there be romance for Adam after his split from Tina (Leanne Best)? A There’s one shocking moment that may be a springboard to something else… He’s always trying for romance. I don’t think he’s quite flogging a dead horse – there’s life in him yet! But Adam is on some sort of continual, almost impossible, quest. He now has the space to work out what path he’s going to tread and to find out if there will ever be another Rachel [Adam’s late wife] or if he’s destined to be on his own. Q Is Adam contemplating changing his ways? A This is the series where Adam grows up, and it’s great seeing how he develops. There’s a big eye-opener for him, which is motivated by his son, Matt. Adam’s always made mistakes but he’s always had this likeability and he’d lost a bit of that, so it was important to find it again. You see the vulnerability there. He doesn’t change overnight, but he looks in the mirror and goes, ‘Right, what happens now?’ Q There are also dark times ahead for Adam’s friends this series – can you tell us about what’s to come?
A Some big stuff happens! Life unravels and it impacts on them all – and Adam is hit badly by it.
It’s about life’s ups and downs and it’s truthful and painfully funny. Cold Feet is always addressing the questions we all ask ourselves as we get older. Q What do you still love about the show? A I never have to go shopping because our costume designer gets in lovely, cool clothes and then I get to keep them at the end of the series! But seriously, Cold Feet has been an important part of our lives. That album of memories is pretty full and it’s nice to look back but also to create new snaps. This series includes old flashback footage of us that was pretty moving to watch. If it hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t be here now, so I'm very grateful. Q Would you come back for another Cold Feet? A Yes, maybe we could do another one next year and then come back to it in 10 years. You could see which of us has had the most work done!
Ups and downs… The friends are back Moving on… Is romance onthe horizon?
