When I first played, I loved John Schwab's performance in the games. I think we are very different and I think that is very easy also because it has an American accent. Mine is British, and so, instantly we are different. We even have different names. So at no time did I feel, as if I were going to step on his toes. But regarding the costumes, I really loved them. I remember calling Lauren and talking about them, and the first thing that came out of his mouth was that I had neither codpieces nor stockings, and I thanked the Lord because I will not spend what could be the next seven years of my life wearing socks.

This is the person he was before he became that authority. This is the type of rough clothing, and as elegant as it may be, it still gives you the impression that this guy can leave the window of a tavern by dropping a hat if necessary. That was something I really enjoyed, the fact that there was some ease. There was some elegance, but there was … he is still a person who sometimes ventures. For me it was the best of both worlds.
