Express Interview


"The 58-year-old actor, best known for his stage work and playing Prince Charles in The Queen, unassumingly acts his socks off in much the same way as he has throughout his garlanded but under the radar career; by dissolving effortlessly into his character."

The Express has a longer interview with Alex at Express.
