How did you get into acting in the first place? What made you think about it?

I don’t know if there was necessarily a thought, but I was a dancer in the local village hall. And then the teacher got approached by the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) for kids to be in A Christmas Carol, and I got cast as Tiny Tim. I went to the local church near where I lived and sang “Where Is Love” for a lady who casts for the RSC, and that was that.

I think you’re at the forefront of all of that really, aren’t you? Especially because it’s a high profile part in a high profile TV series that’s hugely popular and massive, even in America. You’re probably one of the first actors who is playing a straight part, but it’s very open about your own sexuality that you are not straight.

You know, there’s streets in London where one side of the street, everyone will know someone who’s gay and they’re really accepting. And the other side of the street, you don’t mention it. So the idea of reaching the whole of America is interesting to see how that plays out. But, my God, do I feel like if there’s ever a show to be in to do that, it’s this. It’s robust and sumptuous. The idea that you could do something that is somehow opening doors.
