When you create a character, what comes first? I have always assumed it was the voice.
it's different every time

Family and friends

9
Does head or heart rule when choosing the next role?
it's different every time but you can't do one without the other

10
What was your feeling after reading the script of The Imitation Game ?
At first amused then engaged, thrilled, horrified and enraged at the injustice he suffered

11
What was your main motivation to do this film?
To try and inhabit this extordinary man and tell his story

12
Have you ever been injured on stage or on the set?
Lots of times in Frankstein - cuts and bruises. A couple of minor injuries on Sherlock and Star Trek

13
Sir, other than learning more about the genius Alan Turing, what else can we learn from this movie?
The brilliant work of quiet heroes at Bletchley Park. How near to losing the war we were

14
What was the hardest part about Turing for you to relate to?
the brilliance of his mind as a pure mathmatician. I was terrible at maths at school

15

Leech or Turing? If former EVERYTHING! If latter, how deeply he felt in his too brief life

A joy. Keira and Matt G, old friends. Leech and Beardy, instant classics...

21
what was your first thought when they told you you had the chance to 'be' Alan Turing?
Absolutely thrilled.

22
Do you have a step-by-step process on memorising your lines, especially monologues?
Sadly not, I wish I did. Familiarity, followed by breaking it down and then endless testing.

23
Turing had a very unique way to speak. How hard was it to imitate (haha) it, and did you get any help for it?
In a word, difficult. There were no recordings of him speaking to imitate, we only base it on hearsay.

24
If you would have a free hour,you could sit down onto a bench to talk with someone,the person who would it be?
My grandfathers, both of whom I've never met.

25
what's your favourite thing about filming?
Camaraderie on set with cast and crew. Beyond that, I don't really do favourites.
