1 It’s the most profound experience of my life, doing this show [The Seagull]. It’s the first time I’ve been entrusted with a role of this nature. Up until now, I get the quirky character, the goofy comedy guy – and this is just so far removed from those parts that I normally get.
2 I’d love to play a more serious role in a movie, really…If someone was to trust me with a more serious role in a movie, I would love that. That would be great.
3 I’m very neurotic. My mind doesn’t switch off. Are you haunted by social faux pas you might have committed in the past? This happens to me 10 times a day. I wish I could be a little bit more cool, just let things go and not worry so much. I spend my whole day cringing.
4 I’ve never actually considered myself a comedian, even though I started off in stand-up and then got the part in The Office, which was obviously a comic role. So I would say it’s not a conscious decision to move away from comedy, but just to try different things. And if, in a few years’ time, it turns out that people don’t accept me in those roles, then I’d be quite happy to go back to being the skinny weirdo in each script.
5 I once camped outside Wembley Stadium when I was 15 to see Madonna in concert. I had already bought a ticket, but I wanted to be the first in, to get as close to the stage as possible. In the end I was so exhausted from lack of sleep I just hovered at the back in a daze.
6 I can usually keep a straight face while everyone else cracks up around me, which makes me feel quite humorless. Must be my professionalism!
7 There are probably more resemblances than I’d like to admit. He’s very pedantic. I don’t think I’m pedantic in everyday life, but he loves trivia and facts, and that’s what I’m into as well. And survival stuff; I’m quite into learning about that. I just have a tendency to get very nerdy about any hobbies I pick up. – about his similarity to his character Gareth from “The Office
