Maybe we like our politicians to appear like bumbling oafs. It certainly never did Ronald Reagan or George Bush any harm.

Some people mistake grit for sheer persistence – charging up the same hill again and again.

‘One Tree Hill’ gave me my first shot into acting, and they gave me the biggest chance, and that’s something that I’ll always respect and be grateful for.

Technically, my first acting job was in one of my videos for a song called ‘Retrospect For Life,’ which Lauryn Hill directed and featured an actress by the name of N’bushe Wright, who played my girlfriend who was about to be pregnant.

I do love Shirley Jackson, but I don’t deserve to be named in connection with her. I remember reading ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ and having goosebumps for hours.

If you like Harry Hill, you’d really like Tony Law. He’s a Canadian comic who’s done a few appearances on ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and ‘8 out of 10 Cats.’ Nobody else could do his stand-up; it’s very idiosyncratic, very daft, very silly, but really well structured.
I don’t aspire at present to be king of the hill in American literature.

I exercise about 40 minutes a day, and I’ll run one day and do circuit training the next day. I live in an area where there are brilliant hills and mountains, so I get a good hill run with my dog.

‘One Tree Hill’ was my first television experience, so naturally I was nervous initially. There is no rehearsal, you get your script a few days ahead, and you work. I was also the youngest actor, 13, on set at that time, but it was amazing to be able to ‘learn the ropes‘ with such a supportive group of people.
