Times Online Interview with John Hannah
15 June 2010
Inside track: John Hannah - The 48-year-old actor talks about prolapsed discs, Pilates and his love of cycling
I had therapy for half a year or so when my career started to take off. I didn’t do it because I felt that success had changed me, but it changed the way people saw me. I needed to get some perspective. In the end there isn’t any easy way of boiling down what you learn, other than you just have to get on with things.
I’m hard on myself but at the same time, I’m pleased with where I am in life. I’m from a Scottish, Protestant, working-class background and I push myself, but I’m not ridiculously ambitious. (Reported by Barbara Davies)
