The June 2019 issue of Essex Life has a fantastic interview with Daniel Mays.
Versatile actor Danny discusses his time growing up in Essex to his current busy filming schedule. “After 20 years I’m lucky I can gauge a good script and see if it takes me in a different direction, but I’ll always be involved in gritty dramas. It’s part and parcel of who I am.”
Danny mentions the importance of inclusivity of the acting industry: ‘I want there to be a balance of all stories being told. You can have stories about kings and queens and politics, but you also need stories about people living on council estates. That’s not just about actors, but producers, directors, writers. Mike’s (Leigh) not going to be around forever.’
Look for Danny in the upcoming Temple for Sky One later this year as well as films The Rhythm Section, and 1917 early in 2020.
