I’d love to do a western. I love classic westerns, that whole thing of mythologising the Wild West. There was a tiny bit at the end of Tamara Drewe where I had to walk across a field to have a confrontation with my nemesis, wearing a Barbour raincoat and in my head it was my Clint Eastwood moment. Of course, nobody would ever have known that except me.
