From Brexit Nationalists and Eton To Noisy Theatregoers

The Homeland and Billions star, now starring in The Goat, talked sweet packets, war heroes and myths of private education.
Time’s up: thanks everyone.
Earlier in the year you commented that it was “a nonsense” that only privately educated actors were becoming dominant in acting. Don’t you feel that, due to the lack of funding in all the arts, such as the removal of grants and increase course fees, that it’s becoming less diverse? That there isn’t the healthy mix of students from different backgrounds that there once was?
On a less serious note:
I watched an old episode of A Touch of Frost on television the other evening and was a bit surprised to see that you were in it. You looked about 12! And I also read somewhere that you’re somewhat grumpy before your years and prone to get annoyed at all sorts of things, such as littering. I’ve just deliberately thrown a crisp packet on the floor – what are you gonna do about it?
