How do you like your news - TV, newspaper or online? Online. I love newspapers, but I have a great app for news on my iPhone and it saves me time and money.

Culture vulture, sports fanatic or petrol head? I am a bit of a culture vulture, I get that from my dad. I really appreciate beautiful views in places that I know are swamped in interesting history.

Indoor comforts or the great outdoors? I love the great outdoors. I would choose a log cabin or camping over a five-star hotel any day. I enjoy cycling or just being outside generally.

Blockbuster or arthouse? I am in pre-production of a screenplay I have written with producer Guy Allon, so I would always go arthouse. I love proper movies and great screenplays. I would much prefer a low-budget art house movie skill, fully written and produced.

Favourite film? I have so many favourite films, but Amadeus story of Mozart is a masterpiece in so many ways, everything from the cinematography to the acting. Genius.

Fiction or non-fiction? I love fiction - Stephen king and Mary Shelley, but I love true stories, they grip me. I love to think of how they felt throughout the experience of the situation.

I'd rather be listening to ... ? I love funk music mixed with rock. But I love Mozart. It also just depends what mood I'm in.

Holidays at home or away? I love travelling. I've been all over the world, but LA, having used to live there, is my favourite holiday. It has everything.

My favourite country outside of Northern Ireland is ... ? America is my favourite country outside home as they are very kind and a lot of fun, just like the Irish. I've never felt so welcome than in America.

Wine or beer, or something else? I hate hangovers, so a night in with friends and a girlfriend. I love the cinema and have turned down many glamourous nights in London for a good movie.

Sweet or savoury? I love sweet things, I have a very sweet tooth.

What I enjoy most about being in business is ... ? I'm not a businessman as such, I just love creating and if that makes me money along the way, even better.

If I didn't do my current job I'd be ... ? I would be a detective. I love investigating things.

I couldn't live without ... ? I couldn't do without golf.
