What are the best and worst things about your job?
The best thing is that you’re living your dream. It doesn’t feel like a job. It’s not 9-5, and it’s what I’ve always wanted to do. I get to put on the clothes – metaphorically speaking – of all these different people and live another life. That’s what it’s all about to me, inhabiting this space that’s constantly different. The worst things? Hmm, that’s hard! I guess it’s the unpredictability. When you finish a job there’s the inevitable comedown when you’re like, what now! Also I never feel completely satisfied with a job I’ve just done which can be frustrating. But there’s not that many negatives!
Cathal is a multifaceted character – an estranged and lost child, a reflective soul, a self-destructive drug addict and a loyal friend. He is very central to the story, even given his little association with Jules – and Colin Morgan played this delicate fragile character of many aspects with much sensitivity and charm. Without a doubt, the final act of his performance was heart-wrenching, moving and stirred so much empathy for Cathal that it almost became unforgettable.
