Do you worry about being typecast?
Nah, as I’m about to fly to New Zealand for The Hobbit [Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings prequel]. That’ll get me out of the typecasting pretty quickly. I’m to play Kili the dwarf, so it’s to be long beards and prosthetics from now on.
Does that mean you won’t be in the fourth series of Being Human?
I don’t really know yet. We’re shooting The Hobbit for a good year and a half – until midway through 2012 – but I think I get six weeks off, so we might work something out.
