1Even though I'm an actor, I don't love sharing everything about myself. It's always good to keep a little bit for yourself. [Interview, September 1, 2015]
2What is interesting, as well, is how much power homicide detectives have and how much respect. They are kind of rock stars, especially in New York. There are not that many of them.
3People say that New Yorkers aren't friendly, but I think they're more friendly than Londoners. Here there is a front-footed nature of Americans. You can go out on a night out and meet 10 random people and stay in touch with them, whereas that's not going to happen in the same way in London.
4New York cops are very specific in terms of the way they talk and the way they handle themselves. All these clichés that, as an Englishman, I thought were from a bygone era or were a bit of poetic license with cop shows - the more you hang out with them, the more you realize how real that jargon is.
5What I like about the 'Underworld' thing is that it's a mix of cool genres, as well as creating its own message.
6I know there's Brooklyn and all the boroughs, but Manhattan specifically is so condensed that the energy is very vibrant. Everywhere you look there is something happening.
7I think you can tell when a New York show isn't shot in the city. It's so iconic and has such a specific energy.
8I don't think I believe in ghosts, per se. But, my nearest experience was when I went on a weekend away and was in a bar in England, years ago, with an ex-girlfriend. I heard this scratching. I was about to go to bed and I was thinking, 'It's an old ghost.' I could hear this noise, but I couldn't work out where it was coming from.
9I've got two brothers and two sisters, so there's five of us and we're all very close, which is cool.
10In Britain, you do your job. When you do an American TV show, there is a sense of being one with the crew, and there is a leadership element, which was a learning curve for me because it is very different culturally. In Britain, you just do it, leave and say, 'Thanks.'
11I was in the school plays, I did a lot of music. I carried on through university for short films and loads of plays.
12I know I often get a job because of how I look. I hope that I keep the job because of how I act.
