A face not to be pi­geon­holed

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - FILM -

DO­MINIC Cooper says his “strange” face is the se­cret to open­ing the door to all kinds of movie roles.

The 33-year-old Mamma Mia! star plays Sad­dam Hus­sein’s el­dest son Uday – and his body dou­ble – in new film The Devil’s Dou­ble. He said: “I’m a bit strange look­ing so I get weird, squidgy-look­ing roles of­fered.

“I’m pleased with that be­cause I’d hate to be pi­geon­holed.”

Cooper, who found fame as the ob­ject of a num­ber of peo­ple’s af­fec­tions in Alan Bennett’s The His­tory Boys, also played the love in­ter­est in the re­cent film Ta­mara Drewe.
