Don’t you just love it when you think a famous person is super-nice and then you get confirmation of this from a source close to them? I do. It helps me keep the faith in this cruel, cruel world where the media hovers, ever-present, like a doomsaying mezzanine level. So, we know that Sam Riley is sound as a pound, retaining all the best bits of his Yorkshire upbringing; like his droll Northern humour, his ability to make an excellent cup of tea, and his appreciation of wet weather. Hopefully he’s managed to shake off the dreaded Yorkshire tightwad stereotype, because that’s never sexy, is it? Like, when you’re in a bar and he won’t buy rounds, making you buy all your drinks separately? I mean, WTF?! Doooooooo one. Anyway, see* him in the soon-to-be released On The Road alongside former WOULD-er Garrett Hedlund (fit) and remember why it is exactly that he is so in demand right now.
