When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.
Tom Burke & Marc Warren: ‘We’re cut from the same cloth: neither of us is ever going to be the loving father-next-door type’
Marc Warren, 47
“[Tom would] turn up each morning floppy-haired and cuddly in his woollen hat and the next time I’d see him, his hair was slick and greased back, he was dressed in leather and on top of a horse: it was an incredible transformation.
Whenever we’d go out he’d make me laugh; he’s very dry. Tom is very into tea and, once, when he took me to a tea shop off Wenceslas Square, he gave me this brew that was so strong I didn’t feel well after we left. I’m never good with tea in the morning; I prefer coffee, which Tom thinks is the enemy of good acting!”
Tom Burke, 33
“My first TV job was in State of Play. My character’s main function revolved around Marc – his character was bisexual, and I’d slept with him. I didn’t really get to know him, though, until the next thing we did together, Dracula: I killed him.”
