So 2017 is going to be a big year for you. You’ve got a film coming out, and you’ve got Man in An Orange Shirt with on the BBC. Tell me about that.
I’m really excited about it. It was the first opportunity I had for filming in London — the city I grew up in, so that in itself was incredibly exciting. And it was with Vanessa Redgrave, who was phenomenal, and she was every bit as challenging and exciting and wonderful as I hoped that she would be. And then you have this material — this searing, strong, deeply moving material — that looks at the life of a gay man and, I think, at probably what’s true for many gay men and minorities, where you may be in a society that is welcoming of you, supposedly, but the shame that you grew up with becomes its own form of oppression. And I think that’s the worst kind of oppression, when it’s self-imposed oppression.

How difficult is it to play a role like that?
It was very difficult. It was probably the most difficult role I’ve played in terms of where the character goes, what happens to him. You know, there was a kind of rape scene of sorts, which was obviously very difficult to film… And surprisingly difficult, I didn’t think it was going to be that difficult. I thought I’d be able to handle it fine, but it did affect me… in quite a profound way. Shooting it, and certainly afterwards. But at the same time, the themes that were explored I believe are vital, and in that sense it was wonderful knowing that I was doing something that had higher aspirations other than just simply to entertain. It is entertaining — it’s a beautiful love story at its heart and its core — but it’s also an eye-opener. It certainly was for me, reading the script. I got to think about things that I perhaps hadn’t thought about. And I think when people see it they’ll enjoy the love story, they’ll enjoy watching it, but they’ll also get to think of things that they perhaps haven’t. In that sense it’s really important, and I think it will be really really special.

So you grew up in North London, but you’re filming in L.A. all the time. What are the differences between filming with the BBC and filming in Hollywood?
[Laughs] The craft service! So on bigger-budget American stuff… it’s my favourite thing about being an actor, you get the crafty table, which is like a table of snacks. Or in L.A.’s case, it’s a room or a whole trailer. And it’s like munchie heaven [laughs]. So you’ll just go in, and anything you could possibly want, like popcorn, or little hotdogs, or sweets. And I have a huge sweet tooth, and I love to snack. So it’s like my dream… Whatever anyone ever tells you about acting, the best thing about it is the craft service!

So the BBC don’t spoil you like Hollywood?
The BBC spoils you in other ways. That said, I didn’t really have a lot of time to sort of go and get snacks.

You mentioned that the part you just played for the BBC was really challenging. I’m sure being an actor has huge ups and downs, so how do you reflect on your career’s trajectory so far? Has it been an upward curve?
I think what I’ve tried to do in the past few years is make careful choices, and so choosing the projects that I take on, I do with consideration to whether it will be an enjoyable experience, a challenging one, an artistic one… and also making the choice not to do something. The best thing you can do in terms of your career as an actor is to say ‘no’.

And that’s got to be difficult.
It is and it isn’t. It’s more difficult when you have the good fortune of being offered more than one thing at the same time. And they may be two or three great projects, great directors, and you have to say ‘no’ to two of them. That’s when it becomes difficult. However, I’m very clear on what I want to do, in terms of the challenges that I want to take on. I want to be scared by a role, by a project. And I’m director driven. So ultimately, it’s always the director. It’s my favourite part. It’s the relationship and the dialogue with a director which makes the character.

Check out the official trailer for the second and final season of Hand of God. All ten-episodes will be launched exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on March 10th.

Created and written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), Hand of God returns with Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), starring as Judge Pernell Harris. The hard-living, law-bending king of San Vicente, “Judge Maximum” has finally hit bottom as he faces trial for the murder of a cop. While his visions and the ghost of his son will slowly lead Pernell through a conspiracy that is bigger than he could have imagined, they will threaten his relationship with his wife and everything he holds dear. This season, Judge Maximum must fight on two fronts—to restore his sanity and gain his freedom.
