If you’re looking for the actor that played Ricky…err…Mickey in any more Hollywood blockbusters, you might just have to keep looking for a lot longer.
Noel Clarke, who most recently played a pivotal role in last years megablockbuster Star Trek: Into Darkness, recently revealed that he really isn’t looking for any more big budget work, especially coming out of Hollywood.
I wouldn’t mind it, but I’m not going to chase it. I’m definitely not someone who spends their time trying to figure out how to do that. I just want to try and do good work.
Since his time on-screen in Doctor Who, Clarke has found more work behind the camera, directing projects like Adulthood and 18.104.22.168.
While the behind-the-scenes work hasn’t all come as easy, Clarke wants to continue to challenge himself with his work.
Adulthood was a very, very difficult and a real learning experience. I guess luckily it was something that came out well, and then I directed another film but since then I haven’t found something that I wanted to do.
I feel like you get to a stage in your career where people take you for granted or you plateau and so you’ve got to choose whether to coast along at that level, or start taking risks to elevate yourself.
Take the risks, Noel!
