HOLLYWOOD – British actor Mark Strong has asserted today that he is ‘not evil’, despite appearing to be evil in such films as The Guard, Kick Ass, Green Lantern, Robin Hood and Sherlock Holmes.
The actor told the Studio Exec:
I admit I have been typecast as a bit of a villain, but I’m a working actor so I take what I can and hopefully as my career progresses I’ll be offered perhaps a more varied selection of roles and people will see what I can really do.
Does it anger you when people confuse with the roles you play?
No, not at all. I think it’s funny. And after people have talked to me for a few minutes, they realize it’s just all part of the job.
But what if people insist that you’re evil, how do you handle that?
There’s nothing to handle. I mean people are really intelligent. 99% of people understand that it’s pretend and they behave accordingly.
What about that 1% though?
Well, it depends.
What do you mean?
Okay if someone doesn’t get it and after I explain time and again, I might lose my temper a little.
You shout at them?
No. What I do is I find out if anyone would miss them. You know if they were to disappear would there be an investigation. How thorough would it be? Do they live in a building, or in a detached lonely location? Somewhere with no security. Once I’ve captured them, I …
Yes. As I was saying once I’ve captured them I take them over to Tom’s place.
Tom Hiddleston, he has this hole in his cellar. I mean I say hole, it’s more like a dungeon really. It’s where he puts people who insist on calling him Loki all the time.
Yeah. It was Tom who told me how to capture people.
I think that’s all we have time for.
Of course he has amazing drainage. And industrial strength acid.
