Steven Berkoff on playing a villain

Steven Berkoff starred in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Steven Berkoff has said he's played his fair share of villains - but they've not been "obvious".

The Beverly Hills Cop, Octopussy and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actor has often been cast in the villainous role.

The 75-year-old said: "Once they cast you one way, that's what happens."

:: Steven Berkoff will be appearing at the Performing Arts Industry event PERFORM between March 8-10 at London Olympia. For tickets and further information, visit www.performshow.co.uk.
