I was actually filming in Prague, I’m doing the BBC’s adaptation of 'The Three Musketeers’ over there, playing Cardinal Richelieu. I had my phone on silent so I missed the call. It was my dear agent. I rang her up, and said ‘It’s me’ and she said, 'Hello Doctor.’ I just started to laugh and I haven’t stopped laughing since.
I really want to do a play again. I’ve kind of gone from TV series to TV series or project to project, and I’ve wanted to get back in a rehearsal room. I feel like there’s that exploration process, in a way, that you get in phases on jobs but I do wish I had that time [at school].
