Interview: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy star Mark Strong!

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Mark Strong is a force to be reckoned with. Yet as I walked in to interview this fantastic actor, he smiled warmly as he remembered me from the last time we spoke. He was also worried about my recent knee injury. Not only is the man a great actor, he is also an incredibly kind-hearted fellow and just plain cool.

In TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY, Mark takes on a different kind of role. While he is only in the film for a limited time, it is most assuredly a very powerful performance. Much like Gary Oldman and Tomas Alfredson, Strong is not only a remarkable talent he is also a genuinely nice human being… Did I happen to mention he is an amazing actor!?!
