You play fictional superhero Bruce Wayne’s billionaire dad, Thomas Wayne in the upcoming Batman prequel Pennyworth. What can we expect from the series?
Sex, blood, violence, incredible music, punchy action scenes, romance, politics, espionage, sexy costumes, London in the ‘60s, twist and turns, the supernatural, the underworld, the high-life, unpredictable character driven drama all wrapped up in a seriously stylish world with a DC bow on it. And my moustache.
Who is the actor, living or dead, you most admire and why?
It’s a long-standing ambition of mine to make my own work so I find Phoebe Waller-Bridge a bit of an inspiration. For many reasons. For her bravery and honesty in the material she writes. For making her own work and generating her own space in the industry. For telling stories that make you laugh hard but hurt even harder. And for being a brilliant and candid human.
