Speaking to Metro, he said: "I was 10, it was a long long time ago. It's nice to be the guy that you're going, 'Why do I know him?' I think there is a lot of ammunition in that as an actor."

He explained: "I think there are elements it has allowed opportunity but at the same time, people naturally think of you as a particular thing when you establish yourself in one thing.
