Q How’s your gym time working out?
A I’m nowhere near as disciplined as Sam so when I choose it. Plus I’m getting too old for this shit. xx

A I’m not Scots unfortunately, but I’d say keeping it f*ucking real.
Q Who’s the biggest whisky drinker on set?

A I try. Just getting older and always take inspiration from the bravest of souls and he was one of the bravest.
