It’s just smart and funny, and it has done this amazing thing
where it has really captured this world of people that I know and had
grown up with. It captures New York City in a really neat way that, as
hyper-realistic as it is it, feels very true. I think it’s really funny.
Game Of Thrones
I think Game Of Thrones has been genius and I really don’t
want it to end. Every episode is huge. It’s totally immense and the
actors are all fantastic in it. It has totally drawn me in.
This is actually a reality show from the Animal Planet
channel, chronicling the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which
defends whales and dolphins from being slaughtered. The show itself is
amazing but so is the organisation. I’m a big supporter of it, so I
follow the show religiously.
My Favourite TV Character
It’s probably still Alex P Keaton from Family Ties, played by
Michael J Fox. He’s nothing like me and the Keatons were nothing like my
family – well, I guess that’s not true, his parents were old hippies
and so were mine – but he’s one of the reasons I wanted to become an
actor. I thought he was so enigmatic and funny and such a contradiction
because, in one sense, he was this very straight-laced, miniature
Republican but he was also this really sweet kid who cared about his
family. Fox is a genius comedian and I loved that character.
