    I don’t want to die without having done a Cillit Bang advert.

    What’s your strangest job that you’d absolutely love to do?

    I've just always wanted to coolly walk away from an explosion in slow-mo!

    Weirdly I always fancied blowing my brains out with a pistol... and sadly it was fulfilled last year when I was cast as a Triad informant who decided to shoot himself in the head because he knew the Triads were onto him. It hasn't been completed yet because they have yet to do all the CGI to make it look like half my head is hanging off as I'm in the last few seconds before reaching death.

    I've also been killed by a girlfriend in one short film; and in another I'm already dead and in limbo. It seems casting directors enjoying killing me - quite sad really :(

    I would absolutely love to be Doctor Who... but that would never happen. I don't think the British will ever be ready for an Asian Doctor, notwithstanding my acting abilities (or lack of).

    Ha, that's a great one, Jason. Don't diss your own talent though.

    Maybe while we're all in lockdown we should try to recreate our own dream roles. Might be a laugh.

    It'so messed up, but I've always wanted to be hit by a car in an epic way after saving someone. Just taken clean off my feet. They have stunt artists for that but still... I imagine the whole scene lying on the road, being brave, trying my hardest to live while the soundtrack kicks in...

    I need to stop now.

    P.s. to Jason- They have an Asian Master in Doctor Who (Sacha Dhawan) and he is formidable. If you can't nail the job you want, create it in your own special way!

    I would have to say that I have always wanted to be the scary creature or the killer in a horror movie or series, for example; 'IT' (2017-2019), he is creepy but plays a character that everyone loves in the Horror Genre. Or even playing the Joker because he knows that he has lost the plot but is some how still sane because he causes havoc to all of Gotham knowing very well that he is doing wrong, but that won't stop the demonic 'freak'.
