Richard Madden addresses the rumors & # 39; James Bond


Richard Madden has the habit to put oneself in & # 39; situations, if that tells you b & # 39; honest way, the worst possible situations that can & # 39; possibly imagine himself.

For example, he hates singing, says he can not sing, says forced to sing is quite one of the worst nightmare of his night, says, "Thank fuck for autotune!" When a state that is the next music Elton John, Rocketman, who needs to sing quite a lot. And still later, he says, is making "Carpool Karaoke", where he will be singing. When I say I thought it was only for the current singers, he corrects me. "No. People also stupid." That it means: people who say yes.

People. That's another. Madden will issue them. He thinks, he says, are all facing lejnu. Of course, is right about that. They. We we meet for lunch at & # 39; The Wolseley in & # 39; & # 39 London, London – chosen place, though one, you & # 39; argues, not ideal for agorafobiċi paranojdi – and as Madden passes from land to me, wearing navy romneck hand worked and expression of & # 39; to protect man to the impact, the heads & # 39; they left and right as the crowd joġġorru point after tennis. It's that … Yes. It is the bodyguard of Bodyguard, The man who a week ago had reportedly been offered the role of & # 39; 007 to succeed Daniel Craig, the star & # 39; spectacle that the finale was confirmed by the BBC a few days before as more episodes & # 39; drama watched since records began, already famous television actor after the star & # 39; the his star as Robb Stark Game of thrones, But in & # 39; suddenly Coca-Cola is famous thanks to something that everyone said he died: designation & # 39; television, water cooler TV, Twitter trending, no spoilers, please for -love-of-God-no spoilers TV. And all is well and good and great and, of course, is why we are here. But also: people.

"It is not for the old paranoia and general anxiety", says once he sat seated. "Your paranoia is actually real."

Other paranoia really is true: in the trees photographers outside his flat. photographers hiding under car His flat out ( "So can not see them"). But they're there, he says. They really are. To jiġġieledhom, Madden set up several groups & # 39; WhatsApp friends and neighbors, serving as a spotter network, b & # 39; effectively the PSAT. See: trial! ( "They send pictures of them and say," This is out. Here's his car. ")

"You & # 39; you think in your head," says Madden, "and then there are literally photographers in trees. The greatest fear & # 39 My, became real."

Fire. That's another great fear. And it keeps the entry & # 39; buildings that could potentially & # 39; catch fire. So to enter any building, Madden first check where is the fire exit and only then can & # 39; settle, if he has a safe route & # 39; rescue. When check in & # 39; hotel, the routine is always the same: not before he left his bags on his bed to go back into the corridor to find the fire escape. This is a habit, he says, which is derived primarily from his father, who is bieżer, but also, suspected, by its nature as someone who is not particularly b & # 39; his health of & # 39; long goodbye or, indeed, goodbye of & # 39; any length. When ending work, he refuses to say goodbye to the people he worked with and spent & # 39; close, but rather say, "See you tomorrow", even if he knows he will not see them tomorrow and even though they know it will not watched yet . But "See you tomorrow" is what it says, because it is just too difficult for him to do the other.

And then, finally, there is this interview, in which he says & # 39; one point: "I shit during interviews. I'm terrified. I terrifikat me, I'm not interesting enough."

That, things unexpected and interesting and sometimes as strange that Richard Madden will tell you, can & # 39; in fact the single most unexpected and the most interesting and most strange, because nothing can & # 39; be further from the truth. Madden shit is f & # 39; these things. It's really great f & # 39; these things. It is sincere and asymptomatic wry Speaking at & # 39; paragraphs built to be quoted by & # 39; fullest and possesses the kind of & # 39; offhand wit is only in possession of & # 39; genuinely funny.

But, as he tells, is often terrifikat. So who knows? It can & # 39; be right about that.

HOw the hell happened to it? "Says Madden, once we settled and ordered his meal: eggs Benedict which broken eggs, once it comes, will not be cut & # 39; b & # 39; attention as mixed, as plasterer prepare a paste, and spread like jam eggy. it is, quite frankly, erojiku way to eat eggs Benedict. it is also a fair question.

before Bodyguard first aired on BBC One, there was a kind of & # 39; polite anticipation for it generally b & # 39; coverage of Times Radio (it was, after all, by Jed Mercurio, the popular creator Line & # 39; Duty series), but barely saw people visit the former road b & # 39; liveliness.

The setup seemed simple enough. Madden had to play Sergeant David Budd, a war vet & # 39; before Afghanistan turned body guard for the home secretary, who had Keeley Hawes. No longer simple. Bodyguard just filled in & # 39; each episode sometimes felt like a series of & # 39; pages & # 39; front & # 39; newspapers all happened to one guy. Bomb & # 39; suicide! Scandal! Sex! Assassinazzjoni! Terror! Corruption!

The action was really exciting. Sex was genuinely sexy. The twists have been tailor-made for Twitter. The home secretary of the speech could & # 39; got better.

But at the heart & # 39; all this was Madden, actor & # 39; 32 years, until that point, was living with & # 39; disturbing as closely to simply be known as "that guy from Game of thrones"Or possibly" from that guy " Game of thrones who got killed ", or maybe even – and most troubling of all for him -" that man has a lot of princes ".

Suffice it to say that TUNIKA Swapping to dress, armies loyal to a foreign woman, PTSD to replace jaws erojiku – was something & # 39; departure.

The performance of & # 39; Madden was brilliant, but it was the second episode really started comparisons Connery / Bond, as appropriate blind Madden fired a converted car, grabbed a semi-automatic weapon and went hunting for attacker on a rooftop nearby. With tweġġax is Scots.

Bodyguard started with & # 39; 14 million viewers and ended in 17m. And so, as Madden now say, "How the hell does it happen so? I still do not believe in & # 39; my mind."

Filming of the six episodes of & # 39; hours took five months. As his character share this time with & # 39; fair way between the shot, wearing a & # 39; & # 39 apparel; and thinking of suicide & # 39; suicide, took his weight.

"We were somewhat deep, do not know x & # 39; is more going on", he says. "People will say, 'Did you know that would be a hit? "You go," I was just trying teżistiha. I just try to get to the end of the week. "

I say I read a few sleepless nights he had, but he corrects me.

"I had a lot a & # 39; sleepless nights. When slitting & # 39; all day clothes & # 39; someone else, says other words & # 39; someone else, anyone else think about the thoughts and all this shit is shit, that can not help but be filtered in your life because you are doing in six days week. It weighs on you.

It's that … helpful, I ask, to the role?

"Yeah. But not so useful for your health … not fun to do it. He takes his fare by doing this. You go home empty. At night you dream about."

All of them can & # 39; be interpreted as typical talk about departure & # 39; oneself in & # 39; commitment and weaken both the dive. But it soon becomes clear over this. After completing the shoot, said, felt so drained that really wanted to stop acting altogether. Really?

"Yeah. Finished Bodyguard and did not want to act again & # 39; other. Really. Had taken a lot of & # 39; me physically, mentally and personally. Not having seen some of my friends for months, until not been established. It was just unrelenting. Could not day & # 39; rest. My character does not have the second time. It took me more than anything else that did. "

So … second series then?

He laughs. "I niddeplora I met & # 39; to & # 39; Jed the next week actually on that front." He can not, say, Budd imagine going back to work the next week and said, 'Right, where is my next employer? " After all: "He has walked through & # 39; Central London b & # 39; bomb it."

Although one change, he says, involves c genuine strap (and pregnant) not yet provided the bullets had been wearing. Halfway through & # 39; shooting, say, real bodyguard – one of the consultants show – told him: "Why are you wearing that then, mate?"

"It's what they do", replied Madden.

"You do not use that," said the security guard. "They can see that you bodyguard then, can not?"

"And I'm like, 'Exactly! "I tried to explain to them in the beginning."

He even realized that his fellow players were not even wear. Richard Riddell, who had a fellow police officer, told him one day: "Just do not tqiegħedha if it does not want to use it."

Madden: "He left without having to wear one for the whole thing! I had to be smart."
Ironically, the party & # 39; Bodyguard people assume was the most unrealistic – the central point of the plot & # 39; security guard who had an affair with the "principal" are protecting – was actually nothing but.

"It's funny. Most people on the internet were saying:" This is so unrealistic that have come and gone after they had sex. "The guards spoke to them, without mentioning certain names, they were like, yeah, completely fucked their head. You really do not enter it & # 39; these people. So those things are sure to happen. There are a couple & # 39; irrepetibbli stories … stories … "

But perhaps one repeated one?

He laughs. "No. I want to tell you, but I can not."

He agrees to tell you one of the record. And he's right: it is not rare.

WHen Madden finished his last scene Game of thrones in 2012 as "King In The North" Robb Stark – a remarkable scene to start a wedding but ended with throat cut & # 39; his mother, the stomach of a pregnant woman shivved and his own character Ballesta -bolted and decapitat; Throne never had a laugh track – it is not, he says, hang around for the afterparty or even say goodbye to his throwing & # 39; mates. It will learn, is his thing. Instead, went away from the set to the airport and took a night flight back to London.

When first mentioned this to me, the website GQ cover shoot, I & # 39; d assume that it was because he had to get another job.

"No," he says now. "I just wanted to leave. I just wanted out."

He even had time to change, he says, so it in flight wearing medieval TUNIKA covered by fake blood. No sooner had sat was overwhelmed with emotion & # 39; all this and began bdejja.

"I urged and urged that Friday. I was indeed historic. I was so exhausted.

I denied all the way to home. "The air steward air remained uncertain whether it was good." And then people were moved and rows of & # 39; mċaqalqu behind. Solloka and I was covered with blood. I looked like I & # 39; d killed someone and got on that flight. "

Never saying goodbye so, as he did not say goodbye after the last day Bodyguard and anything else ever made. I wonder if it is because they find it too emotional, if he's going to hear & # 39 ;, is quite do it alone, or at least in & # 39; 40,000 feet b & # 39; foreign numbers somewhat terrified.

"No. It does not care about anything. It's just … I just do not like saying goodbye. Do not like the things going. I never. And Throne it was such a chapter & # 39; big birthday in my life. "And so he did what he always do: he said," See you tomorrow "and left.

Did you feel a bit cheated, I could ask, by comparing b & # 39; inċemikali way after only three series when friends of his lost votes will end the next eight years later?

"No. I had ready to leave when I did. It was five years from the pilot until Filming finished. For each player, five years is too long to belong. Ħassejtx not fooled at all. I had prepared to leave."

That does not mean he was confident in the post & # 39; afterThrone life.

"Shouted", he says. "Shouted you will never work again. Shouted you will be defined by only one thing. It was a serious incident and that whoever had lost as Robb Stark would have success & # 39; what. and just happened was when you could have been someone else. "and also, of course," Instead of & # 39; just cast as Romeos, small princes and kings ".

The fear was not exactly without basis – he'd already had a Romeo in & # 39; this point and again & # 39; do. His first leading role in post-throne Prince Charming films was playing in a live remake of & # 39; & # 39 action; Disney Cinderella. His main series TV after Binoculars: Medici: Masters & # 39; Florence, Which essentially had Robb Stark Renaissance.

Watching Bodyguard as Game of thrones Fan is interesting. Even if you die hard, it is remarkable how little the character & # 39; Robb Stark – and b & # 39; the extension princes all & # 39; various levels of & # 39; which was charming – come in & # 39; take for granted. I remember it was the same player.

Partly, this is simply a talent, of course. But his accent – Madden used the burr of & # 39; his native Glaswegian first in & # 39; major WOL – certainly not tweġġax.

It was something that insisted on?

"Yeah. I said to Jed in the first meeting wanted [Budd] to Scots. It just made it a bit easier to get a sense of it. I work for so many years and was in Scots & # 39; something. I was like, "You'll get & # 39; it? I just do my own accent."

Say that it is a complement to his accent "Yorkshire" in Game of thrones not even I knew it was Scots.

"That's humorous. You know, the Stark family [in Thrones] in fact did not speak with & # 39; northern accent when we started. "X & # 39; is, really?" We were all supposed to have RP. Then came Sean Bean and said only, "I'm not doing it. I'm just gonna want to be." So what they were like, "Right, the dialect coach will teach everyone to do this accent now …" "

If Madden was happy to leave Throne and what he calls the – Throne "Pornographic sex" after ( "Soft-FOCUSED fur and lying on the fire. It was like a Seventies porno. My wife kept the & # 39; her knee high boots. Game of thrones pornographic sex "), does not mean to leave the money back too.

Madden said before that people think that is rich because of the show, but "I was 22 when I registered me with fuck-all on my CV, so fuck you have been paid for".

Certainly, I have to say, m & # 39; longer the case with the new contracts negotiated his former cast mates. They were put on a lot more money after leaving?
"Fuck yeah."

How much are we talking about? Three times? It jġegħel head and his grins.

"Crazy lot more."

Ten times?


Twenty times?

He raises his eyes with a desire to go running.

fifty times?

"I know X & # 39; is some leads now," he says. "And we're talking changing the place a few places. That would have been nice, but at the same time I look back at the different jobs I did from finished and I look at some of the players that I love on that show and perhaps not had the opportunity to do those things, because they have been linked to & # 39; the show, since I'm much more different parts. "

That is true and it still feels incomplete.

It was only with & # 39; Bodyguard that Madden m & # 39; longer bound Throne, Six years after he left. As to try it, his next role – that ended up shooting the day before seen – is a manager / lover John John Reid in the biography-cum-musical fantasy Rocketman, Which is about away from Robb Stark and the world & # 39; Throne how is it possible to get.

It has not reached the real Elton, say, who is played by TARONI Egerton. "I think it came, saw sets, costumes, jewelry and things, and said," That is right, see you in & # 39; Cannes! ' "

He remembers eating director, Dexter Fletcher, who had him tape & # 39; Egerton who sang "Rocket Man", "and that was the game changer. I heard it fresh, but with & # 39; many Elton way, but it was TARONI. "He went to Abbey Road to meet & # 39; to & # 39; Egerton the day ( "it was exciting") and read a couple of & # 39; scenes. And what was. It is assumed that it was not taken. "It should have been meeting & # 39; h and was in 15 minutes." He was so angry with & # 39; this certainty ( "I just thought nursery bill"), he left for two hours, annoyed him. He then took a flight and having turned his phone, decided that it would not and did not jdawwarh and a half days.

"I did not naħsibhom tell me I ġġibuh. That's what I knew not rċevejthiex. "Cut & # 39; his agent at the end of the day, saying it received the party and asked why his phone had been out for two days." When deciding to do something, so. I'm extreme than that way. "
From the film, says, in addition to many likes to awtotunija, is most proud of the fact that "We know to Elton for all his flamboyancy and we have many preconceived ideas of the time about gay relationships in films and the television. But they are only two men in & # 39; relationship and I'm really proud of that, are not niddefinixxuh with their sexuality. "
But generally, he says, "I'm thrilled. Now Bodyguard works and go, & # 39; Shit, I can & # 39; act. Maybe not just a fluke every time. "Of course, now I've jinxed it said."

IIn one must explain why Richard Madden finds it difficult to have faith in & # 39; Rad Richard Madden, despite the faith & # 39; & # 39 all in, Rad Richard Madden, one explanation can & # 39; found in his childhood, he saw Richard Madden relentlessly intimidated.

It has grown into & # 39; Elderslie, a small village just outside the city & # 39; Paisley, about eleven miles west of & # 39; Glasgow.
"It was a difficult place to be", he says. "M & # 39; no major industry in & # 39; that over town. It was raw. My high school was really harsh."

He was jitmeżmż, overweight, conscious of itself and had no interest in the sport. Or, to put it another way, bait cows.

Grown, says, "was really just constant humiliation".
He spent much time in the woods near his home, because he was always out & # 39; else he could & # 39; escape. "Yeah. I liked the woods. I & # 39; d spend a lot of time in the forest to get away."

He went to youth theater "to try to get it a little more innifsi 'confidence, and while it has increased its confidence acting, did not work with & # 39; this way with his class.

"Yeah, in careful & # 39; after perhaps not the best step to try to enter into & # 39; type & # 39; rough school, many male to say," Hello.

Now I do a song and dance! ' "

So then they beat you twice as hard?

"Yeah. Exactly."

You remained very overwhelmed?

"Yeah. Who would not?"

In fact, say, most people do not. I think the kids jirrazzjonalizzawha bullied into believing that happened to everyone, but it was not really. Happened to bullied kids.

"Yeah, well", he says. "I certainly did."

So he prepared himself to act. He remembers his father, a fireman, will issue in & # 39; 4 am to drive him to survey or set, while narrows behind b & # 39; dontu ( "I always thank you very much for that"). The ever first job, at age eleven, was in & # 39; adaptation of the novel & # 39; Iain Banks Komplikabbiltà.

"And I get raped it a big Scotsman of & # 39; half the fifty ginger. Now, when eleven or twelve years, the kids do not differentiate what is not real. So going in high school, here is this the big fat gay guy actor who got raped. as soon as you start high school. So the humiliation that came from really. and what turned out well. "

On sets, where the food was always available, started eating excessively. Tubby was always a child, but began to bubble.

"I just eat too much. You are always given food all day! Three meals a day. Stacked. When you're 12 you," Yeah! "And I did not have many friends, and was on set, working with & # 39; adult. "Moreover, he adds, PlayStation got invented.

At 12, he says, "I was waist & # 39; 38 inches. I say, living Christ. It was not until I wear denim-19 was maintained with jeans. Then I saw citizens fucking chinos." During young his teens, says, "I looked like an accountant."
The combo was not a happy one. "It dropped like a shit sandwich."

Yet it affects, say, today: people protecting it. Back then, it was because it was great and respondent. Now, because he is handsome and famous. Yet still found it hard to separate the two.

"Every day. Yeah. You people look at you. I think not fuck me up as a kid and still huge eagle about me today. "

It's just really remember, say, one fight properly. Or, at least, the beginning of & # 39; one.

He was 14. During the EP, one class "who had overcome the fear & # 39; from me" kept taunting him, "Just who are inches" You're fat! You're fat! "

Madden thought if ġielu him, undoubtedly & # 39; took nothing wrong that started it, but on the other hand, "At least he will come and will stop terrorism."

So Madden asked him, "You fight in & # 39; south?" The other boy said sure, but when it came to food, decided he wanted to eat first – then fight. Madden before, before deciding, not: he takes his crash before lunch & # 39; south.

And so, Madden went Tasty Bites, where his nemesis came to order roll sausage, offered him outside and soon a crowd gathered, something uncommon at his school, because the fighting force in schedule & # 39; strict daily. He remembers his friend said, "Get the first punch in!"

Madden was just about to swing this punch when, out of nowhere, f & # 39; blow hose felt over his shoulder and found himself dragged back through the crowd and deposited on the bonnet & # 39; car. The assailant unseen? His mother. "Fucking my mum!"

A classroom assistant, was passing, got a flat tire, came out, saw her son to swing his first punch in the first fight and decided that saved his life.
And that, he jgħidlekli, "was a whole new humiliation".
Still, he reflected, he never took in & # 39; another fight after that, "every time someone wishes one, go", your will be held, will not she? "The sima my ffrankatni, b & # 39; any way. My mother was my body guard then."

Richard Madden lets you groan when illuminating the following question.

So, to start, the – Mail on Sunday reported the past week you're expected to be offered …

And that's when nismaha: expression injured & # 39; of & # 39; the young English actor forced to talk about speculation may be the next James Bond – kind & # 39; an early start for those who have Donmar.

"My first reaction," says Madden, "is always the same reaction, which is the paper making on history & # 39; Sunday so they can discredit that story on Monday so they can sell papers on both days. "

Sure, I have to say, but at the same time, the bookies are doing to Jonah Hill as the current favorite favorite super spy of Britain, are they?

"They are not, not, but this is what happens with & # 39; all these shows, like Tom Hiddleston The Night Manager. Then there is the next one. I am the next one. Everyone loves music rumor on that subject. I have only one current. There will be a different one next week. "

All is quite difficult to argue. But still, say, nice to mention the same.

"Lovely. I'm reluctant to mention more than & # 39 ;, for people to consider putting it in & # 39; this role. I'm very thankful and contact. It is something really brilliant to be."

Just for the record, then, does not exclude it?

"I do not want to ask anything by saying anything. I think it's the curse of & # 39; what. If you talk about, you will find it."

He admits, however, that is a big Bond fan.

"Yeah. I love movies. I read all books. "

read All books?


From what age?

"Early Teens, I think."

Obviously, this is all it says Madden on the subject. So do a survey on mine & # 39; those close to him. Richard Madden should be James Bond?

Lily James, costar in Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet"It & # 39; d be great! It would be great to have a Scottish Bond. There cheekiness it works very well with & # 39; Bond. That wryness and glint behind the eyes. Do not know X & # 39; is going following. "

Jed Mercurio, Bodyguard creator: "I think the only thing more annoying than rumuri of & # 39; Bond is people who actually give their opinion, no one gives anyone about it".

Kit Harington, costar in Game of thrones"I do not want to nissalvah. Every time someone starts receiving rumored for Bond, it becomes a curse on them. And the reason I do not want to do it is to actually think he did a great Bond. He got this natural charm . It is proved by Bodyguard to that muscle it. And would not it be nice to go back to Scots Bond? "

To report back to Madden. "Very nice of them," says dry. "Thank you very much to talk about that …"

I mention, well, let slip that James was regularly had vodka martini after each evening & # 39; Romeo and Juliet, It feels like you're making my job a little too easy.

He laughs. "I do like Martini, yeah. Fucking hell, Lily. Will keep your mouth lit? They make a really good one here actually."

And now, I tell you, you are driving in very Bond-esque car, a silver Jaguar F-Type.

"Well", he says, "Conscious guy f & # 39; item and going to run the affairs of & # 39; Jaguar Land Rover and said," You want a car? "I said," I & # 39; d love F-Type. "He moved on," Great, I'll get you one. "I say, is a rocket ship. I love it. It can not be real. Perċezzi work. M & # 39; INIX complaint."

ADuring our meal, contact to the Scottish novelist Andrew O & # 39; Hagan, a good friend & # 39; Madden, who grew up not & # 39; far from it, in & # 39; & # 39 like suburb; class & # 39; work & # 39; Glasgow. They met for the first time in 2008, when Madden, 18 years his junior, starred in it Be Near Me, Adaptation & # 39; the novel of the stage & # 39; O & # 39; Hagan. "We clicked immediately," O & # 39; Hagan tells. We've closely since then.

Despite Madden say can & # 39; imagine anything worse than public speaking ( "I & # 39; constellation before 2000 easily naked if I'm in character, but standing at the wedding of my father, making a speech, crush '), is not in fact the end of such speech, in Cathedral & # 39; Glasgow, in wedding & # 39; O & # 39; Hagan.

Bodyguard began the week & # 39; before, so the whole place was swarming with & # 39; photographers, but, says O & # 39; Hagan, "Richard was only for pictures with & # 39; everyone drank his share. It's what I take out more about it: it is dedicated to his work, but he knows from where. "O & # 39; Hagan remembers the mother and father & # 39; Madden were also there and he always wishes him also:" that closeness to family and the idea that if the tide rises, we are all going together. "

Madden read the first poem & # 39; Robert Burns, "Handsome Nell", mainly because daughter & # 39; O & # 39; Hagan, Nell, was in front of & # 39; before and O & # 39; Hagan did not want to or finds out. He says that Madden did not need it explained to him and "use that voice and read his poetry directly to Nell and she almost felt. That's asking pal."

Ask O & # 39; Hagan to share some of the main memories & # 39; his friend and he has a few. What jqatteb more at & # 39; mind, he says, was a house party O & # 39; Hagan broke off in & # 39; & # 39 in Belsize Park, London.

"And the Italian novelist Umberto Eco was requesting whiskey," starting O & # 39; Hagan, f & # 39; what should count as one of the largest judgments opening & # 39; any anecdote. In fact, O & # 39; Hagan says, "several large" were present, but O & # 39; Hagan was in the kitchen attend stew, so Madden, then 24 and not yet famous, was charged with attending guests.

"L-hilarity ta 'dan qatt ma ninsew," tgħid O'Hagan, "għax, filwaqt li tkun sbieħ bħala biċċiet żgħar għall-mistednin awto-importanti, huwa javża kull ħaġa terribbli dwarhom u jirrapporta hekk kif wasal lura il-kċina. Wasalt fl-istufi qatli nnifsi bil-ħerqa u meta daħal fil-kamra kienu kollha beaming. Richard kien il-persuna favorita tagħhom qatt. Huwa kbir bħal dak. Huwa kummidjant naturali. U jaf kif jgħix bosta ħajjiet f'daqqa. "

Ħin ieħor, O'Hagan ifakkar li t-tnejn minnhom kienu f'Pariġi, fl-2011, barra l-librerija Shakespeare And Company, u qabdu ma 'Ethan Hawke u tkellem mal-maniġer tal-ħanut, li O'Hagan kien jaf.

"Richard kien għadu kemm deher li kien milqugħ tajjeb ħafna f'logħba fin-Donmar u kien diġà kiseb ix-xogħol fil-Game Of Thrones," tgħid O'Hagan, "iżda ma qalx kelma waħda lil Hawke dwar ukoll li huwa attur. Konna żewġ guys Skoċċiżi waħedhom fuq ir-razz f'Pariġi u li adatta lil Richard. "

Huma kienu qed joqogħdu, jgħid O'Hagan, fl-appartamenti ta 'Pariġi ħdejn xulxin u, vera għan-natura ta' Madden, kważi hekk kif neħħew il-basktijiet tagħhom, huwa diġà jinsab kull ħarba. "Hu kellu l-post kollu skopjat."

Meta aktar tard staqsi lil Madden dwarha, huwa jqiegħed dan isfel, sempliċiment, għall-prattikalitajiet. "Ukoll, taf x'inhi f'Pariġi. Huma qed bħal ftit toqob tal-fenek. Int trid tkun taf kif toħroġ. "

Bħala bieraħ, missieru kien ra "ħafna affarijiet orribbli, affarijiet li seħħew f'bini li n-nies ma jistgħux joħorġu. Hija xi ħaġa li poġġa f'me u sorijiet tiegħi. "

O'Hagan jgħid li hu dejjem iħares il-ħruġ tan-nar ukoll. Imma hu jpoġġi l-kompulsjoni 'l isfel għal xi ħaġa oħra.

"Fl-opinjoni tiegħi", huwa jgħid, "huwa inqas li tagħmel mal-biża 'tal-mewt milli l-biża' li ma tkunx ippreparata. Huwa jrid ikun jaf x'inhuma l-għażliet tiegħu. Jekk staqsiejt bieb vojt, jien ngħid li għandu biża 'li ma jkunx ħieles. U dik hija ħaġa pjuttost ta 'klassi ta' xogħol. "

Iktar tard nitkellmu ma 'Madden fuq it-telefon. Huwa fl-LA, jagħmel l-istampa Amerikana għall-gwardja tas-sigurtà, li waslet biex toħroġ internazzjonalment fuq Netflix. Huwa 31C, li hija ħasra, jgħid, peress li hu ppakkja diversi jumpers. "Ma kontx ippjanajt dan tajjeb ħafna."

Nsemmi t-teorija ta 'O'Hagan lilu.

"Naħseb li dan huwa mod tajjeb biex titqiegħed," jgħid sempliċement. "Yeah. Nahseb. Tkabbru, dejjem stinkajt għall-indipendenza tiegħi. "

Għada, huwa jgħid, huwa wasal biex jtiru 'l bogħod biex ipoġġu fuq bajja għal ġimgħa mal-ħabiba tiegħu, l-attur Ellie Bamber. But after that, he says, he’ll do what he always does after he’s finished a job. On his own, he’ll board a flight to Scotland, get into the wilderness and start walking.
He’s under no illusions where this compulsion comes from. They’re the woods, or a version of them, that he went to as a child. The place he could escape.

“Yeah. That’s maybe where I get my wanting to be out. I feel like I should lie down and give you £100.”

But also, now, it’s something else too. It’s where the paps can no longer find him. “It’s not worth a picture that much!” It’s where people no longer touch him.

“You spend long days surrounded by people,” he says. “People literally touching your body and your face all day.” And so, he says, “I go away and I climb some hills – where no one is fucking with me.”
