Talking Hitman:Agent 47 (and having a few laughs along the way) with the multi-talented Rupert Friend (Pride & Prejudice, Homeland) was a stark difference from the introverted, elite assassin of few words that he portrays in the new Hitman: Agent 47.

After giving me a good nudging about being an American interviewing a Brit for a UK blog, Friend shares with us the similarities between his methods in film and in theatre, gives his best WWE impression and discusses the creative freedom that playing a faceless video game character gave him.

Hitman: Agent 47 is released in the UK on August 27th.
