DOC_MARTIN_EPISODE2_26-1.jpg

Amy Raphael gives us a lovely, personal  glimpse of Martin Clunes behind the headlines in a lengthy article in Radio Times. Along with comments on “Doc Martin,” he talks about one of his favorite musicians, Chris Martin, lead vocalist and keyboardist of the British rock band Coldplay. 

“Clunes stops. His blue eyes fill with water. ‘I’m going to cry,’ he says, his voice cracking. ‘I’m thinking of Chris Martin singing the Oasis song Don’t Look Back in Anger at One Love Manchester [the concert for the victims of the bombing]. Goodness…’ He takes a sip of lime and soda and composes himself.”
