‘To give you an example, my dad came home from work one day and asked my mother why the wallpaper had changed, and she simply said, “It is easier to clean the blood off this one!” There was a lot of rough and tumble!’  

On his character’s lack of dialogue in the Netflix series, he said: ‘This time round he says a lot more and they have popped in some of my expletives from the last series.’

When asked if he is in the running to be the next James Bond, he admitted, ‘I would definitely have a conversation. From what I understand there are very early conversations happening at the top but there is no list as such.’
