You can read some of the questions and answers below:

I loved your portrayal of The Governor in The Walking Dead. Is there any chance that you’ll ever play the role again? An adaption of the Rise of the Governor novel would make a wonderful prequel!

I would love to play the role again, however there are no plans to do it. Not to my knowledge anyway. He was a character that I felt had great depth and complexity. Not just a cardboard baddy. A lot of my inspiration for the role came from the books written by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga. I think these books are fantastic and I think it would be wonderful to do a mini series of them.

What advice would you give to a young person now without any means or support but who is really burning to go into acting?

I am very worried about the lack of support for people from low-income backgrounds trying to get into the creative arts. It’s always been a difficult profession to break into but I feel now with drama and the visual arts being taken out of school curriculum it’s even harder. My advice is never give up. Join amateur dramatic groups. Get your friends together to read plays and scripts, make your own film on your phone, it’s about knocking on doors writing letters and believing in yourself.

How was your experience of playing Mark Antony in Julius Caesar at the Bridge theatre? How did your characterisation of Antony come about?

It was a wonderful experience all round. Great cast, great crew and brilliant audiences. I think The Bridge is a very special theatre and I will remember the experience for a very long time. What is amazing about Shakespeare is how even now he is relevant to us and can give us insight into human behaviour that illuminates the very situations and times we are living in now.

I admire your work with refugees. What first inspired you to work with them and do you see yourself continuing to do that for a long time?

I am a goodwill ambassador here in the UK for UNHCR. I have been doing work with them to highlight the plight of refugees for a number of years now and I will continue to do that for as long as I can. I feel that the refugee crisis and how we handle it is truly the challenge of our age. Reaching out to people, helping people who are fleeing murderous circumstances is a no brainer to me. We’ve seen in history what happens to people when the world turns its back on them and it’s up to us in the 21st century to ensure that that doesn’t happen again.

Which one of your characters can you relate to the most / who’s most like your personality in real life?!

There’s always different aspects of myself in all my characters but the character that was most like me was Billy in One Summer, which was the first job I ever did about a 16 year old kid in Liverpool, which I happened to be at the time. It was a very relatable to me at the time.
