Mark Strong for Miller Fortune
We have a DEA chemist on the set. He taught us how to make methamphetamine, which is a very detailed process. I still have my notes. I didn’t want to learn about the back-alley process. I wanted to know how to make it perfectly, the absolute purest meth, and what equipment and chemicals to use, because that’s what my character does. So if I had to, I could make more than just meth; I could make really, really good meth. It has created a very healthy sideline for me if this acting thing ever stops working.
Mark Strong - Thespian, Villain and True Gent [Huntsman blog]
It is always fun when Mark visits Huntsman. Despite playing a regular villain on screen, you could not wish to meet a nicer chap. 11 Savile Row offers a comfortable, Gentleman’s club-like setting and so Mark is always happy to take his time, enjoy the experience and have a cup of tea and chat on the sofa in the front shop. As a fellow Arsenal fan, there is plenty of banter to be had, particularly with Johnny, Peter and the boys in the front shop.
