In the second part of my interview with John Simm, the actor discusses his passions in life and what drives him to take the roles he so thoroughly inhabits on film, stage and small screen. John talks with wit, modesty and candour about working with his friends, Phil Glenister, Max Beesley and Marc Warren on the final series of Mad Dogs for Sky 1 . He also discusses his passion for music from the Beatles to Beethhoven – and why if he had to choose between Dickens and Dostoyevsky, he would choose to inhabit the rich, multi-layered world of the great Russian writer.
I hope you enjoy this fascinating, relaxed and thought-provoking interview, as much as I enjoyed making it.
