  • CHARACTER.

  • BUT I AM 25.

  • SO I APOLOGIZE FOR DISRESPECTING

  • 25-YEAR-OLDS OR SOMETHING.

  • >> Jimmy: NO, THERE'S NOTHING

  • YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.

  • I SEE YOU'RE TRYING TO GROW A

  • LITTLE BIT OF FACIAL HAIR,

  • BUT --

  • >> I'VE ONLY HAD A DAY OR TWO

  • SINCE I WAS ON SET WITH THE

  • CLEAN SHAVEN LOOK.

  • >> Jimmy: IS THIS A PROBLEM YOU

  • LOOKING YOUNGER THAN YOU

  • GENERALLY ARE, LIKE IF YOU GO TO

  • A BAR?

  • >> NOT TOO BAD.

  • >> Jimmy: IT'S NOT?

  • >> AT LEAST IN ENGLAND, IT'S 18

  • TO DRINK.

  • >> Jimmy: IN ENGLAND, YEAH.

  • >> YOU JUST DO WHATEVER YOU

  • WANT.

  • >> Jimmy: WHAT PART OF ENGLAND

  • ARE YOU FROM?

  • >> LONDON.

  • >> Jimmy: THE ONLY PART I KNOW

  • IS LONDON, SO I DON'T EVEN KNOW

  • WHY I ASK THAT QUESTION.

  • IT'S LIKE, OH, YES, YOU'RE FROM

  • BOSTWICK.

  • I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> NEARLY.

  • NEAR BOSTWICK.

  • >> Jimmy: IS THERE A BOSTWICK?

  • >> THERE PROBABLY IS.

  • >> Jimmy: I DON'T KNOW WHERE

  • THAT CAME FROM.

  • YOU WERE IN A COUPLE MOVIES WITH

  • JOHNNY DEPP, RIGHT?

  • >> YES.

  • >> Jimmy: CHARLIE & THE

  • CHOCOLATE FACTORY.

  • >> AND FINDING NEVERLAND.

  • >> Jimmy: WOW.

  • SO DID YOU GO TO A REGULAR

  • SCHOOL, OR DID JOHNNY TEACH YOU

  • EVERYTHING?

  • >> I GUESS IN TERMS OF ACTING HE

  • TAUGHT ME A LOT, BUT NO, I GO TO

  • A REGULAR SCHOOL BACK IN

  • ENGLAND.

  • >> Jimmy: AND DID YOU GO TO

  • COLLEGE AS WELL?

  • >> YES.

  • YEAH, I WENT AND DID LANGUAGES

  • ARABIC AND SPANISH.

  • >> Jimmy: ARABIC AND SPANISH?

  • REALLY?

  • >> YEAH.

  • GENUINELY.

  • AS OPPOSED TO ME LYING TO YOU.

  • >> Jimmy: IT JUST SEEMS ODD.

  • SO YOU COULD CARRY ON A

  • CONVERSATION WITH GUILLERMO IN

  • ESPANOL?

  • >> I COULD DO MY BEST.

  • THE ARABIC --

  • >> Jimmy: IS BETTER?

  • >> NO, IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I

  • PRACTICED.

  • >> Jimmy: WHY DID YOU STUDY

  • LANGUAGES INSTEAD OF ACTING?

  • >> PEOPLE THINK THE ARABIC IS

  • BECAUSE I'M A SPY.

  • BUT IT ISN'T THE CASE, I'M NOT A

  • SPY.

  • >> Jimmy: IF YOU WERE A SPY, YOU

  • WOULD CERTAINLY NOT SAY YOU WERE

  • A SPY.

  • >> THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT

  • COVER, WOULDN'T IT?

  • >> Jimmy: IT WOULD BE.

  • AND BASED ON MY RESEARCH

  • WATCHING JAMES BOND MOVIES, A

  • LOT OF SPIES DO HAVE A SIMILAR

  • ACCENT TO YOURS.

  • >> YOU NEVER KNOW.

  • >> Jimmy: SO YOU MIGHT BE A SPY.

  • >> I DON'T KNOW WHO SENT ME HERE

  • TO INVESTIGATE YOU, JIMMY.

  • AND WHAT YOU'VE BEEN UP TO.

  • >> Jimmy: IT COULD BE ANYONE.

  • IT COULD BE THE PRESIDENT.

  • YOU KNOW, HE'S TURNING OVER A

  • LOT OF ROCKS RIGHT NOW.

  • >> EXACTLY.

  • >> Jimmy: SO YOU WENT AND

  • STUDIED ARABIC AND SPANISH.

  • AND THEN DID YOU EVER DO

  • ANYTHING WITH THAT INFORMATION?

  • >> I MEAN, I DID MY YEAR ABROAD

  • IN MADRID, WHICH I COMBINED WITH

  • THE FIRST SEASON OF "BATES

  • MOTEL."

  • I WAS WORKING AT A LAW FIRM IN

  • MADRID, PRACTICING MY SPANISH.

  • >> Jimmy: SO YOU WERE WORKING AT

  • A LAW FIRM AND IT WAS ODD TO

  • YOUR CO-WORKERS THAT NORMAN

  • BATES WAS WORKING THERE WITH

  • THEM?

  • >> I GUESS THEY HID ALL THE

  • KNIVES IN THE KITCHEN, KEPT THEM

  • AWAY FROM ME.

  • >> Jimmy: WERE THEY AWARE OF

  • YOUR ACTING AT THE TIME?

  • >> THEY WERE, YES.

  • >> Jimmy: AND SO DID YOU -- I

  • MEAN, WAS IT LIKE A REGULAR WORK

  • SITUATION, WHERE YOU HUNG OUT

  • WITH PEOPLE AND WENT TO, I DON'T

  • KNOW, OUT FOR DRINKS AFTERWARDS?

  • >> YEAH.

  • I ACTUALLY LIVED ABOVE A BAR

  • WHEN I WAS IN MADRID.

  • SO IN THE EVENINGS, I'D TRY AND

  • SOCIALIZE.

  • NOT THAT I DIDN'T LIKE THE

  • LAWYERS, BUT I'D HAVE, YOU KNOW,

  • AN ATTEMPT TO INGRACIATE MYSELF

  • WITH THE LOCALS WATCHING THE

  • SPANISH FOOTBALL GAMES DOWN

  • BELOW.

  • >> Jimmy: I SEE.

  • >> AND I'D PRETEND THAT I HAD A

  • SPANISH GRANDMOTHER.

  • >> Jimmy: WHY?

  • >> BECAUSE THEN I COULD CHEER

  • FOR THE SPANISH TEAM AND THEY

  • WOULD ACCEPT ME AS ONE OF THEIR

  • OWN.

  • >> Jimmy: IS THAT HOW IT WORKS?

  • >> YOU GO DOWN AND CHEER ON

  • SPAIN AND THEY'D LOOK CLEARLY AT

  • ME, THE PALE, SUN-STARVED BRIT,

  • SAYING, ARE YOU REALLY SPANISH?

  • AND SO I CAME UP WITH THIS BACK

  • STORY THAT MY GRANDMOTHER WAS

  • BORN IN GLEETHIA, WHICH IS THE

  • NORTHWEST PART OF SPAIN.

  • >> Jimmy: OF COURSE.

  • NEAR BOSTWICK.

  • >> NEAR BOSTWICK, IN A LITTLE

  • VILLAGE, AND THERE WAS THIS HUGE

  • LONG BACK STORY.
