The Daily Telegraph: Freddie Fox Interview

By Tim Walker

As he prepares to open at the Hampstead Theatre as Rupert Everett’s love interest in The Judas Kiss — he plays Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas to Everett’s Oscar Wilde — Freddie Fox has been ruminating on the dangers of typecasting.

His father, the great Edward Fox, has carved out a niche playing upper-class characters, but Freddie says he would prefer to be more like Mark Rylance, who, he feels, “transforms” himself from role to role.

“I’ve been around actors all my life,” he adds. “It’s why I call people ‘darling,’ and I’m only 23.”
