Esquire's interview with Stephen Graham

No worries. This is England is the exception to all this, of course…

Yeah, it stands on its own in my eyes. Before I began filming my storyline Shane [Meadows, the director] sat me down I watched the first few episodes and I was blown away by it. To me it was a master class in acting. We’re watched these young people grow up for the past 10 years, watched their characters develop and progress – it’s beautiful. He had me laughing my head off one minute, then I was in tears the next. Television that can make you do that is what we used to watch television for.

A great interview of one of my favourite actors. Also, I’ll use any excuse to link to material discussing This is England.
