Q: Do you relate to your character who lived 400 years ago?

A: I share a lot in common with Porthos. Both of us are from humble beginnings. He was born into darkness and found his way into light, and much as I did in becoming a professional actor. I am from Brixton in South London. It was rough. I was congratulated to get out. I always had the world vision of wanting to get out. Porthos needed something to fight for and believe in.

Q: What was your training?

A: I have been a professional actor for seven years, the Royal Shakespeare Company.

I trained at the Drama Centre, London.

Q: How do you learn your lines and delve into character?

A: I listen to jazz. It is about mastering the rhythm. Once I am on it, I don’t come out of it. I find it much easier to immerse myself. De Niro once said, ‘It doesn’t matter how you get there, just get there.’

Q: What is the most fun with this gig?

A: Working with people that push. I demand the best of myself to start creating magic. I am not interested in the idea of being an actor. I am interested in transforming and spurring on myself, my evolution and growth as a man.

Q: How was riding a horse and sword fighting for this?

A: I knew how to ride and fence, and I am very handy and naturally a good fighter.
