You’ve had some great scenes – from breaking Jack and Chloe out of the CIA to confronting Adrian Cross. When we last saw Belcheck, Jack was telling him to wait by the phone, so I take it we haven’t seen the last of him?
The escape in the opening episode was really cool, that was my very first day. I suddenly found myself standing on top of that van, holding this rocket propelled grenade launcher in my hands and blowing things up. But the best is yet to come! That’s all I can say though…
You have great on-screen chemistry with both Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub. What is it like working with those two actors?
When you are on set you have Jack Bauer in front of you… Kiefer is one of the greatest. He is so focused, precise, intelligent, generous and prepared. I have learnt so much from him. That loyalty that Belcheck has towards Jack probably comes a lot from myself, as Kiefer is also such a wonderful person so I find that very easy to play. I kind of saw Belcheck always like his watchdog, his doberman even. I am actually very lucky to be a bad guy but on the good side. If I’d been an enemy of Jack, I’d probably be dead already. I love the ‘new’ Chloe, her darker character now. Chloe and Belcheck have probably a lot in common. Mary Lynn is fantastic, she is wonderful to work with as well and great fun. She is really funny, she did some gigs in London’s underground comedy clubs after shooting.
