Sam Crane (Desperate Romantics) Interview
...
A fictional character, Fred Walters is played by Sam Crane, a young actor whose experience already encompasses stage roles at the National Theatre (Some Trace Of Her, DNA), The Royal Court (Kebab) and Shakespeare's Globe (Othello).
...
Fresh from filming an energetic bar brawl with Aidan Turner (who plays Dante Gabriel Rossetti), Sam explains the origins of his character Fred: "He's a composite of several historical characters.
...
Sam admits that, despite undertaking some background research, the scripts, which initially drew him to the project, were his main source: "I did research into all the different people and I read some of William Rossetti's diaries.
...
Sam explains: "Fred is a moral person and he gets really frustrated by the group's occasional fecklessness, ambition and particularly Rossetti's depravity.
...
Sam confesses that, in reality, he isn't an ardent fan of Pre-Raphaelite art, but he has other reasons for admiring the group and for thinking their story has something for a modern audience: "I think some of the work is good, Millais is a talented painter, but he does get a bit chocolate boxy sometimes.
...
Sam explains how, in Desperate Romantics, his character's business acumen changed the way the delicate relationship between art and commerce worked.
...
It seems Fred may not relish being a punch bag but Sam certainly enjoys tussling with this complex character.
