“I’ve done nearly a decade of it and I’ve loved every minute of it but I’ve kind of grown into someone else and I have realised I trained to be an actor a long time ago and I wanted to be an actor.
“I’ve just finished a wonderful film with Isla Fisher and Steve Coogan and I’ve got another project in the pipeline so I’ve changed everything up and I want to be actor like I wanted to be when I went to drama school all those years ago.”
Fisher and Coogan are both due to star in Michael Winterbottom’s new movie Greed, a satire about the world of the super-rich.
