In-demand Nesbitt's body of work is quite astonishing
Appearing in a hit television drama and a sure-fire box office winner would leave most actors counting their lucky stars. But a glance through James Nesbitt's credits shows that his success is due to a mixture of talent and hard work. All actors have something of the chameleon in them, but Nesbitt's range of work is astonishing, from voice-overs in commercials to Shakespeare, from comedy to riveting drama.
And yet he retains a down-to-earth personality as well as his distinctive Co Antrim accent. It is hard to believe that he only got into the profession by accident, but it was a lucky break for his fans.
