Me and my friend Ioan Gruffudd are like chalk and cheese when it comes to clothes. He lives for his clothes and has an amazing wardrobe. If we’re going out I’ll turn up at his house and say ‘I haven’t got anything to wear’ and he’ll tut and sigh and then lend me something swanky.
I’m 33 now and I seem to have hit a fitness plane. Shifting the wobbly bits isn’t as easy as it used to be.
I would absolutely love to go back to the simplicity of the ’80s where there wasn’t texting social media iPhones or smartphones. I love the fact that you would go home and check your messages. I’m not well suited to the world of modern technology.
I was shocked by the amount of Welsh people in L.A. We’d go to this British pub to watch the ‘Six Nations’ early in the morning and I remember the first time I walked in it was just a sea of red.

I wasn’t one of the cool kids by any stretch. I just bumbled along really.
Well it’s a little harder in New York. It’s not as forgiving to a film crew. You hold up a bunch of New Yorkers who can’t cross the street they’re not going to take it well. Southern California? They’ll wait. It’s cool man. In New York they’re like ‘Are you kidding me? I gotta get to work.’
