Fleabag’s “Hot Priest” Andrew Scott for Mr Porter’s “The Journal” Style Guide

Posted on October 11, 2019

Mr Porter‘s weekly style guide “The Journal” features “Fleabag” actor Andrew Scott photographed by Serge Leblon and styled by Mitchell Belk.



On Modern Love: “It’s just a really sweet little story. It’s not about a romantic relationship. It’s simply about the relationships between people.”

On life: “The more I work, the more I just think every story is in some way concerned with love – or the lack of it. That’s the way life is. It’s so fast and furious.”

On playing the “Hot Priest” in Fleabag: “If I’m honest, it’s only really just starting to dawn on me, the global effect the show has had. People like a bit of transgression, they just do.”

On if there’s a Marvel movie in his future: “Oh, fuck. Completely false. Someone said, ‘Are you going to be in a thing?’ I said, ‘No,’ and I said, ‘There have been discussions.’ And it’s like ‘Andrew Scott has been in discussions.”

On vulnerability: “Acting is just a way of experimenting with different parts of myself. Vulnerability is something I’m really, really interested in. I think vulnerability is at the centre of every character I’ve ever played even if they don’t appear or present as vulnerable.”

On potential roles to come: “I’d love to be in a romcom. I love watching people fall in love, and how mad it is.”

On storytelling: “What always amazes me is how innocent we are as human beings. We are very easily manipulated by stories.”
