Note: “Arthur & George,” starring Martin Clunes, will premiere in the UK on ITV on Monday, March 2, at 9 p.m.
Burton Mail interviewed Martin Clunes about his role in “Arthur and George” and the possibility of a sequel. Here’s a short excerpt from the article:
“Clunes admits to being ‘out of his comfort zone’ with the project and if it wasn’t for his wife Philippa Brathwaite – who produced the drama – he would never have got as far as filming. ‘All I’ve done for the last few years is a bit of Doc Martin and petted some animals in a documentary and that’s about it,’ Clunes says. ‘Just really nice and cosy and comfortable things, and I’ve been happy to stay at home or just do the work that I’m lucky enough to do.
“‘If it hadn’t have been my own wife asking me to do it I probably would have done a runner! But I didn’t want to lose face.’ If that sounds like a joke – and as one of the nicest guys in television, the 53-year-old does love to lighten the mood with a gag – Clunes is actually being deadly serious. ‘I bail out of things quite frequently for one reason or another. Worse than that – I’ve been signed up to do things and then got cold feet. . . .'”
