Andrew Scott thinks he 'wasn't that good' playing Bond villain in 'Spectre'

Los Angeles, Nov 14 (SocialNews.XYZ) Actor Andrew Scott, who portrayed MI5 boss Max Denbigh, codenamed C, in Sam Mendes' 'Spectre' alongside Daniel Craig's 007, doesn't think he did a "good" job and wouldn't like to repeat the role.

"If I'm honest, it's not a territory that I feel like I would want to go over again. Now I know who I am a little bit more, I feel like the work that I'm just interested in doing is more in the grey areas. I suppose it's just that I didn't think… I just maybe wasn't that good in it," Andrew told GQ magazine.


Elsewhere, the 'Fleabag' star said he was "encouraged" to keep his sexuality private to succeed as an actor. 

The 'All of Us Strangers' star can "understand" why he was told it would be best not to tell the public he was gay in case it had a negative impact on his career, but he is glad he "eventually" spoke openly about his personal life, reports

Andrew told the publication, "I was encouraged, by people in the industry who I really admired and who had my best interests at heart, to keep that (to myself), I understand why they gave that advice, but I'm also glad that I eventually ignored it."

The actor recalled being "fearful" of his sexuality as a teenager. 

"There was so much of me that was quite fearful, actually, and ignoring that side of me. What's difficult sometimes for gay people is that you don't get to experience this sort of adolescence where you go, 'Oh, my God, I like that person, do they like me back?'," he said.

Although he went through "pain" as he prepared to come out to his family, Andrew now thinks of it as a "gift" because of how loved he felt afterward. 

The actor said: "I had a very happy childhood, but there's an inevitable pain that you have to go through when you have to take a risk telling your family something about yourself."

"I really do think that that is a gift now, because to have to risk everything, and for your family and friends to say 'We accept you no matter what,' that's a real feeling of love that you get confirmed at a very young age, that actually some people who aren't queer don't get.

"I mean, some queer people aren't so lucky."
