I lost my faith when my mum died, says James Nesbitt

By Brett Campbell

Cold Feet star James Nesbitt has opened up about his loss of faith and claimed his new hair transplant, which was motivated by his own vanity, has also helped his career.

The actor revealed that his mother, May, had originally wanted him to be a missionary.

"I suppose I became a missionary of a different sort, [Mum] was pretty happy [with my acting career] in the end," he said.

The Co Antrim man, who lost his mum four years ago, disclosed that witnessing her "terrible old journey" with Alzheimer's is one of the reasons why he no longer believes in God.

"I'm not a believer in God now, it's increasingly hard with, on a grand scale, what goes on in the world and, on a personal scale, with what happens to one's loved ones," he told a national newspaper.

Nesbitt was back on our screens this week, as Sky 1's Lucky Man returned for a second series.
