Latest Horowitz on MK as Foyle

Well, he's made this remark before, but it's less peevish this time. :rofl: ... -wins.html

He clearly gets on well with his star – even if sometimes he might not welcome all he has to say. ‘Michael doesn’t just perform lines – he argues with me, fights with me, makes my life difficult, but always to make it better. He’s never asked for anything that hasn’t improved the script. He’ll look at five lines and say, “Anthony, I don’t need to say any of those lines. I can just do it with a look...” And it’s so irritating that he’s right.’

This makes me smile. MK knows it isn't Shakespeare, i.e. sacrosanct. It's TV drama :lol: and HE's Foyle.
Do I need to remind much you can trust me?

I think MK is right to fight in his corner.

Many a time I've seen long-running characters do something very 'out of character' and there's usually one of three reasons.

1. New writer who doesn't know the character.

2. OCC behaviour is a lazy way to drive the plot of the week.

3. The actor is just turning up for the pay and has stopped caring enough to argue.

I'm sure one can come up with other reasons, but that's my general pick. :biggrin:
