After what seems like years (and actually, it probably IS years!) Jeremy Northam has stuck his head above the parapet and given an interview (with Nancy Mills of the Edmonton Journal) in which he talks not only about his new role as Dr Matt Proctor in Miami Medical, but also about himself.
Admirers of Jeremy’s work have become used to the very occasional word or two from our boy about his film roles, after which he has clasped his personal life tightly to himself and scuttled back to his hermitage. Ms Mills seems to have achieved the arts journalism equivalent of the Holy Grail: Jeremy has at last been prepared to open up just a little. And those of us who love Jeremy deeply for the pleasure his work affords us could not be more grateful, because the man the interview reveals seems a lot more at ease with himself than when we last heard from him. Perhaps you heard the global sigh of relief from Northam fans? Or the chuckle we all had in empathy and sympathy when he remarked on his 20 year mid-life crisis? Many of us own that particular t-shirt.
One of Jeremy’s most endearing quirks is his talent for self-deprecation. He describes himself as an under achiever. Whilst it’s true that his mantlepiece isn’t groaning with Oscars, one look at what this man is capable of on screen tells you that he is being a bit silly!
From April 2nd, we can see Jeremy Northam disproving his assessment of himself as Dr Matt Proctor in Miami Medical. See my previous blog post to find out more about Doc Proc: Jeremy Northam plays Miami Medical’s scarred man of mystery.
