It’s no secret that I’m a fan of James Purefoy. He’s a great actor, and the sort of chap every Englishman should aspire to be.

The FollowingEarlier this year (way back in March to be more precise) – I spoke to Purefoy while he was on a press tour to promote his TV show, The Following. The interview has been under wraps since then, but finally, with the show hitting DVD next week, it’s live.

During the conversation we not only spoke about researching serial killers, and having a pint with Ted Bundy, we also discussed missing playing Mark Anthony in Rome, and how he and Kevin McKidd are too bitter about Game of Thrones “stealing their show” for us to ever see them marauding around Westeros.

Also, on a side note, I now have a Bacon Factor of two.

The Following is out on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 2nd December, order your copy here.
