Ross Kemp Questions His Acting Skills
Former Eastenders actor Ross Kemp has admitted that he doesn’t see himself as a great actor, despite the wealth of TV roles he has enjoyed to date.
He revealed that he hasn’t been as picky as he could have been about his past roles and said that his 2006 return to Eastenders was driven more by a lack of work than a great script.
“I wasn’t working at the time,” he told Q magazine.
“I like to work. Admittedly my quality control may not be that of other actors but I’m not as talented as other actors.”
Kemp went on to reveal that he doesn’t take great pride in his portrayal of Sergeant “Henno” Garvie in ITV1 drama Ultimate Force and insists that the show should not be seen as an accurate depiction of the SAS.
“If you look at it as I did, as The A-Team for the 2000s, then it wasn’t. It was quite tongue-in-cheek. I called it ‘Ultimate Farce’,” he added.
Ross has recently enjoyed success as a presenter on his Ross Kemp On Gangs series for Sky One. The dangerous documentary shows have taken him into many war torn areas of the world and subsequently resulted in him scooping a BAFTA and much critical acclaim.
