The 30-year-old actor told The Mirror: “I don’t think I realised how hard it was when I signed up… But there’s no point in me lying. The truth is that I wouldn’t have been able to afford to walk away from it.”
他加了: “I think it was a mental challenge for me… And as much as I probably did want to leave at some points, it was never an option, because A, I couldn’t afford to do it, and B, I didn’t want to do it. I wanted to finish the journey. I signed up to a show and I wanted to finish the contract.”
