We’re joined on the Starline by a father, husband, actor, producer, aspiring director, writer, cook, handyman and gardener. You’ve seen him on Resident Evil, Rome and his skills as an actor are beyond contestation. His latest project is “Fisherman’s Friends: One and All”. We welcome James Purefoy.
James, let’s go Beyond the Mic. “Success is measured in record sales, not brain cells” a quote from your movie. Why was this sequel important for you to produce and star in again?
I’m well familiar with them as my dad would threaten Fisherman’s Friend cough drops on my brother and sisters if we started coughing. How did the pandemic change the way you look at your craft?
The Rockin’ 8:
James, it’s time for the Rockin’ 8, 8 random questions; answer with the first thing that comes to your mind. There is no Pressure.
1. Do you put cream before your jam or vice versa on your scones?
2. You’ve put up your own shoes from Marie Antoinette to help the Small Steps project, why is giving back important to you?
3. Which do you prefer more, film or stage?
4. What’s the one thing you love to cook?
5. If you could, would you purchase Yeovil Town and bring them up to fight Wrexham?
6. Last wine you drank?
7. Do you get seasick?
8. Are you a fan of fish fingers or lobster?

One Big Question:
You told a story of a man whose life is unraveling and in the end you want people to know its okay not to be okay.
He always puts cream before his jam, people are pushing him to purchase Yeovil town to push Wrexham but he’s not there yet and he took Italian cooking lessons. Actor, dad James Purefoy thanks for taking the time to talk with us today.
And that my friends is a Beyond the Mic Short Cut.
