I`d heard through the gr*pevine that the BBC were doing Robin Hood and I was sitting in the pub with a few mates in the business talking about who we thought was going to get cast and coming up with all these established names. I remember thinking, `F---ing hell. Imagine if I got an audition for Robin Hood.` Lo and behold, I get this call not long before I was due to go to India for work and my agent said I`d got a meeting for Robin Hood. I said, `Oh, great. For what part?` She said, `Robin Hood.` I just laughed down the phone. `Don`t be daft,` I said. `There`s no way in hell.` I mean, I`m quite a slight guy and they`re going to be looking for some six-foot-three guy, chisel-featured, blond, golden wavy hair down to his shoulders. You know, a massive meaty fellah.
